    In your opinion, would a fog light mod with normal halogen bulbs look weird with HID headlights?

    Unfortunately, yes. I tried LEDs in my new "fog lights" (i.e., old directionals), and it didn't look right even against my PIAA Intense White Headlights. :(
    I think he means this fog light mod. It's a 1st Gen thing... :wink:

    Yeah that's what I was thinking too. Don't think the halogen fog lights will look good under the HIDs.

    Yes, this Fog Light Mod. Yes, it's a 1st gen thing.

    Idk about looks but i'd think it's preferred since white light in fog/rain/snow blinds you. Lightly amber tinted light is actually the most practical for foggy conditions, or so i've been told.
