Right, but what speeds are you expecting to maintain during this weather? Fog lights are meant to light up something like the first 40ft in front of the vehicle to help in REALLY bad conditions. 60MPH is 88 feet per second (IIRC), which is less than half a second's worth in fog light terms. Most people take a couple seconds to respond and begin evasive maneuvering. I've used the fog lights on my truck once semi-legitimately at high speeds (50-55) as it just allowed me to see the snow bank on the side of the road and stay in my lane (due to basically flat light).
If you're truly looking for fog lights, the cheapest route would be to put brighter bulbs in the factory housings. The 2005-11 models would take 9005's or 9006's (whichever has the black protected tip).
Since yours is a 2012, I have no experience and can't help much there. However, I would look into what Hella and Cibie have to offer for fog lights. If you want good lights, be prepared to spend the money. Usually over $100 per light, depending. Size and mounting location will be affect it as well.
Hella and Bosch have made some pretty good fog lights apparently.
Actually, I do have a recommendation that might work in the 2012 housings, depending on the light pattern. The Hella Micro DE projector fog lights are pretty small, and apparently are very good. I believe you can get them in HID ($$$), or regular halogen (need to check into that). Good cutoff, true foglight, wide light, and the halogens are probably cheaper than factory kit. They seem highly recommended from a couple pros.
From pictures I've seen, and what I've seen of 2012's in person with fogs, they very well may fit. They are deeper than traditional reflector lights, but you should have lots of room. You'll have to fab a bracket, and made it solid so it doesn't vibrate.
The DE's are probably about as good as you can do for true fogs and look kind of factory, without a big bar out front. Fog lights need to be mounted fairly low for good results.
Edit: Make sure you get actual German DE's, not Optilux (Chinese Hella). You might be able to get them from Summit Racing (?), but make sure they are not Optilux. Otherwise, probably $150-200 for a pair of them.
