Default New fog or driving light housings

Looking for new housings to mount in my bumper, one of my angel eyes is cracked (no water) and the other one had a small lake in there somehow, and pulled away the reflective material inside. I might put a plastic lens protector over them, perhaps yellow.

Wants - in order...
  • 1) A clear, non colored glass lens, something i can put one of those plastic film protectors over as well
    2) Reasonable price
    3) Appropriate cutoffs/light aiming/whatever
    4) Projectors perhaps?
    5) Maybe some with yellow bulbs?

Things I don't want, or don't care for
  • Colored lenses
    Angel eyes
    Not a circle pattern (like a spotlight, see light aiming above)
    Silly lights inside the housing to make it look certian colors.

Basicaly want a high quality lamp, with no rice. Projectors may be up for it financially, i believe we have 4" lights?

do you have a budget in mind? like a "I want to spent this much tops, no more"
I have a handful of reccomendations but I dont feel like going all over the board for prices if you have a limit in mind.

Are you going for white or yellow output? or either depending on price?

Hit me, the more the merrier. I'm not going to HID solely on price, but i'll spend $100, or more if the cost is warranted.

I also want them to look normal, a round glass lens similar to the headlights in color when off.

White/yellow no difference, i'm not sure what i wanna go with yet.

The Micro DE can be gotten with H3 halogen bulbs you are looking at about 110 to 120

IMO, this Hella 90mm module will be the closest to stock looking projector fog set up.
I'm guessing that these will be near 100-140 also.
(They also make a 50mm version which looks a bit different and will look less stock)

These are Blazer fogs, used as OEM on lots of GM vehicles. The kit here has blue tinted lenses which is what i have now. They are pretty darn nice for their price (~40 bucks shipped) but look nothing like stock. From a distance the holes look empty Clear lenses can be bought for them. Of course the price of the install goes up if you are going to retro them into housings to retain the stock look.

If you are willing to do work in modifing a set of fog housings and work to mount them into the stock location your list grows even more.

Lexus IS300 fogs (Kioto yellow projectors) are some of the deepest and brightest yellow available on the market. But the only way you would be able to do them is with custom work. You are looking at about 100 dollars before parts to make them look stock.

WalMart has a cheap brand that I'm using right now. 20 bucks for the set. All glass, mount up just like the CyberWhite Navigators, clear lenses. And, I just remembered the name as i was typeing. Pro Burners
