Default ANYONE KNOW ABOUT FOGS?

My fog lights are in poor condition. The bulbs are fine, but it seems the inside of them is flaking off or something. There'* a bunch of debris that looks like it'* flaking off from inside and they don't look too hot. Anyone have any suggestions on replacements? I've seen some with the blueish ones. Where exactly can I find those? Doesn't matter what I get as long as they are new. Thanks

Mine are something or other navigators.....jseabert has them too. They're identical to the blazertech 3200'* I think? The nice thing is that they're slightly smaller in diameter, allowing more airflow to the bottom portion of the radiator. A bunch of us are running aftermarket lamps now.

The lamps I have direct the light more side to side by nature of the reflector housing, so you don't waste the light above or below your line of sight. Pretty slick. Much better light with the H3 bulbs, too.

Everyone should ditch the stock driving lights for this style. Mine were just under $50 for the pair, and took about an hour to install.

Great, I'll check out Walmat first and see if they have those, otherwise I'll look into the 3200s!

I'll be carrying the PIAA'* & Pilot'* too. So if you find any of those you like let me know & I'll get you a price.

So many products & so little time!

Default huh?

super white lights have been made for drivin' lights now? I can't find none any place. I recently visited APC to find some, I found hyper white 880'* (foglights) and chrome bulbs! these bulbs appear to be chrome but generate another color when on (orange,purple,green,ect.) looks pretty coo, I orderd a mag but I still haven't got it yet! (it'* been 4 weeks damn near) but yea I didn't know of any brighter lights for our domesticated lights, I don't won't to change my fog light housing just tha light itself I like the original fog light housing units.

I'm about to order the Blazertech 3200s from GPStore. Are the directions for the GPs the same for our cars? How much adjustments and labor will it be to fit them on?

mine took about an hour with no prior knowledge of the factory fog light assemblies. i figured the whole thing out without needing instruction (but i have an se, so possibly a little different)
all i did was screw the blazer bracket to the factory bracket and was set (with some aiming and centering of course)

you will love your purchase! I GUARANTEE IT!

So I shouldn't have to use a dremel or hacksaw to trim anything?

I can't wait to get them. My fogs are in POOR shape. Thanks.
