Default fog/driving lights

hey guys want to get everyones input on driving/fog lights. ideally i would like to get angel eyes! (wouldnt we all?) but they are a little pricey! i looked at the cyber whites from walmart and i didnt see any that looked like our lights i thought someone said that they saw some cyber whites that were close to the same size as our lights?
then after i went to wally world i headed over to advanced auto to look at their merchandise?
i was wondering whether anybody has heard of APC or would recommend these there is one pair (not sure of model number) but they are round and about 4 inches and fit almost perfectly in the stock location. and hey for 39.98 with the wiring harness and switches and relays.
i dont know if this is a great deal or if its just a big rip!
so anyone gimme some input!
thanks all

anything is going to be better than stock, but you need to see what bulb is in the light, most have the H3 that is a 55w bulb. APC are usually low quality, i would say sitck with the angle eyes or a Cyberwhite

BTW i live in Indiana PA, you are not to far away from me, but i'm in NC for college

I received a set of APC angel eyes as a gift. Within 4 months, the control for the rings had burned out, and a couple of months later, one of the lens cracked. There is no indication that it had been struck by anything. Just a fine lined crack almost through the center from top to bottom. The manufacturer has not responded to my emails. I would not recommend the APCs.

My son has been running the cyber whites for almost a year without any problems on his '99 Grand Prix. They are smaller in diameter, but really look pretty good once they're installled.

Expensive? I also got mine off E-bay for $40 shipped.

The Angel Eye are 10x better then APC, Cyberwhites, or anything else - they are just built better period! They are actually driving lights too - all the others are just foglights. If your tight on cash save up and do it right the first time. If you don't you will end up spending twice as much in the end. Trust me I did Cyberwhites on my Trans Sport and after the second sets broke and the third set of bulbs burnt up, I decided to do Angel Eyes.
