which FOG LIGHTS ?

Hi,

I want to install some fog lights on my car, and perhaps you can help me by answering a few questions:

1) which fog light would you recommend ? I've read that the stock ones are good only for esthetics, and I would prefer something better than that.

2) I don't have any fog lights on my car (2000 sedan), this means that I should do the entire wiring myself ?

Thanks!

I want fogs. My car never had any. Is the wiring difficult to make by myself?

thanks, I'll take a look at their kits. For wiring I think I have to improvise something myself, my car never had any fog lights.


zx34, I looked at the leds in the headlights you have just installed, and there are NO REZISTORS ! You may want to chek up un these and add some rezistors yourself, otherwise you will soon lose the 4 led on top + the 2 leds on the angel-eye rings !

the kits that come with most fogs or drivinf lights is usually easy to do and neat. Im in the same boat and might just get stockers for now. Where do you plan on mounting them?

PIAA. They make some outstanding fogs. I have the yellow ions myself, and the wiring wasn't TOO hard.

From what I read, stock fogs are kind of waste of money. They only look good, but are of very little practical use.

I plan on putting them in the usual place, on a stock bumper (for now...).

ok thanks, I'll look for some fog kits made by PIAA, the brand has a good reputation.

Does anybody has any pics on how to adapt the fuse box with the fog wiring ?
