Default Fog light question, what do you think?

I have a 91 LE without the fog light option. I added some from Wal-Mart but am not thrilled. I plan I buyng new ones.

My question is....
Since my car never had fogs I have limited room, I dont have the holes on the far end of the bumber.
Do I keep round fogs, like the newer Bonnies, or get a rectangular ones to match the 91style ?.....

and do i have them spaced like newer see(i)'* since that is all the room I have?

Yep, rectangular. Maybe even spaced wider than the ones displayed on your page? I personally like the "wide eyes" look.

Have you thought of getting the lower skirt off of a wrecked SE from the wrecker? Then you'd have the stock holes

That'* a really good idea will....

I used the Bosch Pilot 150s on mine (both "Fog" and "Driving" lights). They are easily twice as good as my orginal headlights, and they don't bother people because they are so low.

As for appearence, I personally like them, but others have compared them to rally racing and/or truck lights....(ahm torfeo)... hehe.

But go rectangle.... not round.... I think most people would agree.
