Hmmmmm, BBL. I got to go crawl under my car. I want my fogs up where they can do some good. I'm tired of illuminated the yellow lines as they disappear under my car.

Instead of going under, I feel it is easier to pull the headlamp and just reach down. Headlamp comes out with the removal of 2 bolts on top, then slide the housing forward so you can disconnect the harness where it plugs into the headlamp housing. Then just turn on the fogs, and adjust until they are pointed slightly lower than level with the ground. The projectors for these fogs are really good when pointed correctly. The cutoff line is sharp and even has a slight bit of purple / blue at the edge.

In your pic, it'* the screw on the right that looks like it has a big washer under it.

And just so you know, I spent a lot of time messing with the brackets before I discovered this, because my fogs were originally pointed at the ground more or less. DOH!
The bracket is part of the projector assembly. Its attached to your bumper using a plastic piece of crap that can easily fall off over time. I replaced that plastic piece of crap with a bolt, that'* all. Past that, what bothers me about the way its aimed is that they're both slightly slanted. I have the height adjusted just fine.
