Oh, I understand. But I don't like yellow.

I don't know how it would look on a bonneville, but I like the way the IS300'* fogs look (yellow). Bright HID headlamps and then nice yellow color for the fog, IMO it looks pretty slick. But, to each his own...

I picked up some of the Pilot seven color halo fog lights. The things are huge!! The actual lens is really close to stock size, but the led ring around adds about an inch of diameter. They just barely fit in the front of the holes in the bumper, but seem to catch about an inch in, when I did a quick test fit. Anyone know if the "fog light cave" is symmetrical, ie, a cylinder? WIll the ring show when they are mounted in there?

What he said. This always bugged me about the factory design because I think Pontiac cheaped out.

See, the base-level Bonneville SE/LE civilian models have their foglights down at the lower corners of the front end, as low down and far away from the driver'* line of sight as possible, which is how foglights should be installed, and that'* all fine.

But the SSE/SSEi warbirds have their foglights mounted high up, in recessed tunnels, where _driving_ lights should be, only they're not driving lights, they're foglights again, plus they go _off_ with high beams instead of on. That'* a design botch that I'm going to deal with as soon as I get my AngelEyes installed.
