actually there if a difference between fog lights and driving lights
fog lights are to be used with low beams and spread more of a short wide beam
driving lights are auxillary to high beams and cast a narrow long beam
just thought i'd through that in there

looks pretty sweet, but you have an advantage over me with the clearer/more reflective housings!

Navigator Cyber-White driving lights are a Blazer style upgrade. They have a superior reflector assembly to the stock lights. They knock off the upper and lower part of the beam and focus it back down where you want it. They have a blue coating on the lenses to take the yellow component of the normal wavelength out. The result is a whiter light.

They use the H3 55W bulb which is an upgrade from my stock 50W 885'*, and would be a huge upgrade from the later years 38W. The lights are the same smaller diameter of the Blazers, so you can't really tell they're smaller, but they allow more air to flow to the lower part of the radiator. It was very easy to adapt them to the stock brackets. JSeabert and I are both running them now. Less than 50 bucks.

I'm still running Silver Star low beams and Cool Blue highs, but the highs will get changed when one burns out. The combination is incredible. I'm still planning on re-wiring so the driving lamps stay on with the highs.

My thoughts are if you have the "fog" lights set-up and aimed correctly, they will be low and wide to help see in fog, snow, and rain. If those conditions are present you don't want your highbeams on, the reflection would make it even harder to see, hence the fog'* turn off with the high beams. I'm wondering if anyone has added a second set of true driving lights and has worked them into the headlight swithing so that the lowbeams and fogs are on or the high beams and driving lights are on? I think that would be the way to do things, especially if you drive in fog/rain frequently or high speeds at night (hopefully not at the same time!)

I don't really care for fog. we don't get that much up here
I was really going for anything that would light the road up . I'm very happy with my setup.
I do need some lights in my other car . Dunno which ones to get though.

Do the foglights turn off with the rest of the lights when I turn off my car??? If not then I dont think that I will be putting any money into them, as I dont really use them alot.

Driving lights. DRIVING lights!! Not fogs. They'll only work if your low beams are on.
