    I kinda doubt it. Just something i read from someone on the forum, another claimed it helped but could just be the blind leading the blind. Ill figure it out i am sure, just might not figure out why they like to blow bulbs.

    Open the housings up, the bulbs should not ground out against the side of the housing. That nylon washer might help, but it's not a good solution. There's something inside the housing causing it to ground out that shouldn't be moving. It might be as simple as putting a piece of electrical tape inside the housing at just the right spot (if it is in fact a grounding problem).

    I've not had to take mine apart to confirm the bulb being the same, but you're right about the housing/lens. I'll try to post a pic of mine side by side. The driving you can easily see the bulb through, the fog pattern barely if at all.

    Only other guess I have is that the lens could be changed, but that assumes the back part of the housing is identical of course.

    I'd bet the reflector bowl is a steeper cone for the fogs also to get a wide, shallow pattern vs. a long range spot pattern.



    Any of you guys running stainless steel brake lines? Any noticable difference?

    It could be inside. To look at the back of them on the outside I see no difference.

    Alex went that route I believe..

    Toon was selling a set, brand new, still in the box. I committed to buy, just waiting for him to get back to me. $90 shipped, regular is $140 through Autoanything. I've been curious about giving them a shot, sick of my soft pedal and I've heard these help.

    When do you want to grab those filters? No rush, next time you're in the area we'll have to grab some lunch.

    I'd love to have that thing to beat on!

    No sound on the work computer, I'll check it out when I get home. I can't stand that stuff Alex was putting up though. Kendra made me sit through the sound a fox makes crap. That group is like the retarded little brothers of LMFAO.

    This should cleanse the ears a little, nothing like NIN..getting in the spirit for tomorrow. If that doesn't help I'll find some old Misfits.

    Even LMFAO is funny sometimes.

    Haha, thanks! :thumbsup: I agree, I don't mind LMFAO at times. They have some funny, yet ridiculous, shit.

    I actually had a nice ride home the other day, I used my CD player for the first time in a long time and brought Metallica's black album for the ride. I'm now starting to cycle through my old CD's and finding a lot of the songs that never made it to my Ipod.
