Aftermarket fog lamps

Hey, anyone replace stock fog lights on the SVT with some aftermarket version? If so, what did you go with?

repacing the lamp or the bulb?

I've got some PIAA bulbs in mine, came with the car, but i honestly dont care.
Compared to my Mach HID headlights, the light output of the foglights is negligible.

If you mean stock replacements, I got some Depot brand ones, they're just as nice as the OEM lamps.

I've bought some good ones from Ebay for the housing. And they have lasted as long as my stock SVT ones for 2/3rds the cost. Though they are made mainly of some thick plastic, they look pretty good for not being the glass versions that Ford sells.

As for the Bulb, I went with the Hoen Fogs. Great lamps and I like the race yellow bulbs than the standard 5600K ones that match the HIDs.

cant you just sand down your old foglight housing starting with like 1000 grit and going upto like 2000-2500 grit and then buff them out with some polish? I did that on my old car anything stopping you on these?

The SVT has glass lenses so they can't be wetsanded like a headlight. There is a way to polish glass, but the cost of the materials cost as much as buying a new fog.
