does anyone think LEDs would be better in the fog?  

interesting to see the 3 different light colours for the LED headlights, main beam, and fog lights all together.

Would these be ok for fog light bulb replacement?

I have fitted these to low beam on my 2017 S Cross and they work great. Originals were rather yellow.
Bought them for the fog lights but fitting them ended up in the too hard basket for now.
With bonnet open can hear the fans spinning. While the bulbs may last for yonks I do wonder about lifespan of the fans. Time will tell.

High beam is separate like Vitara but reflector is smaller & rectangular. (H7, not HB3) Some Philips x-treme vision halogens on order.
The 1.4T version in NZ has combined high & low like what you got in pommie land.

Philips x-treme vision T10 360 6000k LED for side lights. We call them park lights down under. They are very bright & white

I noticed the house across road was lit up much more (leaving driveway) on low beam than it was with original halogen bulbs.
Occasional flash from on coming motorists to dip my lights?
So parked car against a wall to compare LED spread with halogen.
With light source of LED not being in the centre like halogen, plenty of light was escaping where it should not on low beam.
Did not think it would be an issue with the projector low beam lights.
Now have Philips X-treme vision +100% halogen fitted to both low & high beam.
Same correct spread as original, just a bit brighter = all good.

I find the LED dipped beams so good I find it difficult to become too exited about the admittedly inferior main beam, as an easy improvement would some form of super duper halogen improve matters for a 15 squid or so outlay, maintaining focus & no issues with light scatter etc.
