I shortened the body as much as I could (there is a driver circuit board inside the remaining tubular body section) and assembled the circuit boards so they all face front. This is now as close to ideal as possible. Bloody bright but still not as bright as a quartz halogen
BAD NEWS - the Bulb Failure Monitor module flags it up as a blown bulb. So if you want to use even a 50W LED replacement you'll still need a big fat hot resistor across the two wires to convince it that a bulb is there. And that resistor WILL get very hot - it easily would melt its way through the plastic spoiler if it was left lying around so it will need mounting on heatsinks at the very least or bolted to a bit of chassis to get the heat away. And you need one for each foglight.
