I installed Hella projectors on my ZX3, and now I'd like to upgrade my fog and tail lights to match. I've searched the forums with no success.

Fog Lights: First off, I'm planning to replace the stock upper and lower grilles with the European models. Does anyone make a replacement triangular/wedge housing that will accept a Hella (or similar) lamp in the same place as the original fogs? Or, will the Hella 1NL 008 383-831 Micro DE fog lamp set fit (http://www.hella.com/produktion/HellaPortal/WebSite/Internet_en/ProductsServices/ForDriversAccessories/HalogenHeadlamps/Micro_DE/VehicleMatched.jsp)?

Tail Lights: I would like to install the Hella Magic Module lights (http://www.hella.com/produktion/HellaPortal/WebSite/Internet_en/ProductsServices/ForDriversAccessories/MagicColours/ProductOverview/ProductOverview.jsp), but I think they do not feature standard white reverse lights. Is it possible to convert these to have white reverse?

Thank you in advance!

Also have the Hella tails, but my assessment of the reverse lights is a good bit less positive than dudeman. I found the amber lights to not be nearly bright enough to light up the area behind me. I have a long driveway with trees on both sides, and there are moments when I can't even see the driveway behind me.

This is most likely a combination of the weaker power of the tails and the very dark tinting on the window.

SO.. as a basic suggestion, if you have tinted windows, find a way to convert the reverse light to standard bright white.
