Well, I got the fog lights changed today. No pics, my camera battery was dead and I didn't want to wait for it. I tried going in with the headlight assembly out and I could reach the bulb but without knowing what it looked like and being able to see it I couldn't get it done. I ended up taking the wheel well plastic out and did it that way. The first one sucked completely. I couldn't figure out how to get the bulb past the little wire holder. Once I got the first one done and knew what everything looked like and how it worked the second one was much easier. If I would have only known that you have to push that little wire towards the bulb and up to release it the first one would have been easy and I'm sure I would have been able to get it from the headlight area. Hopefully I won't have to do it again for some time but if I do I am sure it won't take more than a couple of minutes.

Now I just can't wait until it gets dark so I can see how good they look. I went with GP Thunder 8500K bulbs. They are 100W compared to the factory 55W.

if they're anything like the high beams, you'll see a light blue color, 8500k look great for DRL'*

I was wondering if there is a way to adjust the fog lights aim? It seems mine point very low to the ground. I know that they are projector beam lights but I still think they are very low.

There is an adjustment screw located at the top rear of the fog light housing. I believe mine was marked with green paint. The head of the screw faces rearward and it looks like there is a washer underneath. Turning this screw changes the aim up/down.
