I started the install of the Osram combined LED DRL and FOG lights. I will borrow some photos from the German A2 forum.
This is the Lights:

My first idea was to keep the Foglight glass and place the new light behind it. When I examined the front glass I realized that the glass was so blasted that it was not an option. If my fog lights been in perfect condition I would have chosen this way as it looks better.

The simplest way is to it the same way as A2-D2 on the A2 freunde forum (A2FF) with is to use the old Fog light housing as a frame.

1)Remove the reflector insert.

2)Removing the front glass. I placed the fog light in the oven at 120 degree C to soften up the rubber compound. Then I step by step expanded the gap between the glass and housing. A thin knife is handy to cut the compound. I had to repeat the whole procedure 3 times. Be careful for glass chips when you bend.

3)I expanded the hole a few mm using a Hole saw with the diameter of 89-90 mm . Real easy job.

4)Then it is only to mount the new light in it.

The only thing left is alignment that will be done after wiring.

Great,
1) Is the use of the A2 frame required for installing the lamps??

2) if you had good original lamps would that have meant a double glass layer or
would you have tried to remove the glass form the Osram lights?

I think that this thread will give you all the information that you require. I've converted those fog lights to DRL's for under £10! Give it a read. Here :-
