    i leave them on all the time, along with my regular head lights. i dont turn them off, they all go off when i open the door. i wish i could just have the fog lights on and the regular lights off sometimes though. ill have to do a search i guess.

    I have them on everytime my headlights are on. I have never been annoyed by an oncoming vehicle with their fog lights on.

    i didn't do the mod, i was disappointed to find out the the headlights had to be on for the fog lights to work because i always drove with my parking lights and fog lights on and only turned on my headlights when it got dark...

    as for the weather thing i've seen that a lot of people make their fog lights yellow (i'm not a fan of it myself) but i guess it's supposed to be better in bad weather/fog. well when i was taking defensive driving i read that in the state of arizona it is actually illegal to have yellow fog lights on during the day, which i thought was odd... i did a quick google search and couldn't find anything, but just you might want to know

    On always. It's a safety issue people. They're not so much to see with, as they are to be seen with.

    hmm... that's interesting. It may be one of those laws that isn't enforced or known about (even by the LEOs). I ran yellow fogs in AZ during the day (just left the HLs on) and never had any issue.
