The ONLY thing that would make this a true statement is if 3000k -5000k HIDs were used in a PROJECTOR fog light housing because the cutoff shield in the projector housing will limit the amount of beam scatter. Ask me how I know...

WARNING THE STATEMENT BELOW IS NOT AN ATTEMPT TO START SHIT. I do not want to start an argument, I do not want start a debate. You guys do whatever you want with your cars, they are yours, I'm fine with that. I am just trying to get the right information to the OP.

HIDs are not better in a reflector housing than halogen because they do not put the light where it supposed to go. Yes you have light on the road in front of you, but it is also scattered up in the air and off to the side, you just don't realize it because the road is the closest object to your headlights.

calebstubstad What bulbs will give me the brightest possible light from a halogen?

Merrigan They look pretty good. It was already said. But I'll say it again. No HID's. The point of fog lights is to have a wide angle beam of light at a low angle.

katiekay Sorry forgot to say that the photo I posted is ranger_mclaren's ride. He is currently undergoing an SPI to Zetec swap

calebstubstad man, that looks sick. im looking right now, even though i should be asleep since i have school at 7 tomorrow, and its like midnight. but this is more important. next paycheck I will hopefully find an svt grille, as that does look even better. and that wouldnt block the leds I have behind it at all, which is an even bigger plus to looking better. thumbs up on that lower grille too

ProSilverVT02 ^^^^

Now THAT is OEM+

Very nice work. It's not very often people try to match the lower SVT grille when they replace the upper grille.
