Default Replacement fog light housings for 2000 Regal

Are these any good?

The ones on the car I just got are oxidized to hell, one is cracked and is being held up by a plastic bag full of weeds, and I'm not entirely sure if the mounting mechanisms are intact. In either case, the lenses at minimum need to be replaced, so let me know what you think. 35W HIDs will go in these.

Yeah...a bunch of guys use/like them.

Want some E46 BWM driving lights instead? They use a 9006 bulb. This is what i'm using and I have a spare set.

How do they fit and what do they look like? I sure would love to use a set! Do you have any pictures?

Thanks!

Don't think I've taken any since I've tossed them on. But they look/work great with HID'* in them.. hehe

I'll try and get you a pic.

Alright, so how much do you want for them, and are they difficult to install?

Can't wait to see pictures!

I had to make brackets for them. But overall it was as easy as bending some thin metal.

They look almost like the factory lights except they fill in the hole a little more and don't ahve the point on one end.

I made a thread for you in General chat.. I know we'll be chatting up a storm about other mods...lol
