Also will the Ba20D work for the fog light or only the Ba20s?

Work - yes, work well - no, the reflector is designed for the single filament bulb, so with the wrong bulb it will not be as good

As with the amber bulb without the plastic - yes, very well, but I like the look of that amber piece of plastic better

I've also toyed around with the idea of removing all the reflectors, and painting the headlight frame in black (or another dark color), but never gotten around to do it. Might look cool right?

The amber reflector is available.

Mercedes 108 109 111 112Ch Euro Headlight Blinker Lens

There are other vendors online for the reflector as well.

Haven't thought of that before, I might look into doing that
