My goal here isn't embarassment or criticism.....but it is:

1. Let'* make sure one of our members gets something he'* happy with in the long run.
2. Let'* reinforce the value of "I'm thinking about these, what do you guys think?" before buying.

Can we have a link to those lights on the 'net?

They are designed to mimick the 7 lens projectors produced by infiniti for the Q45 which actually have good output. Probably a lot more expensive than those fogs but I would give them a shot.

The ones you're referring to are a TOTALLY different design.

These don't have 7 seperate lenses, and only one large parabolic reflector. Mimick doesn't produce light.

I never said they were the same design nor that they may or may not produce light. I told you where the design idea was from.

on a side note
Personally by the pictures I sort of like the output.

Do you plan on mounting them in the stock location? Or maybe more towards the middle some?

And don't call me shirley.

I'll grant you that they look different, but why reduce the total light output?
willwren is 199% correct as those will decrease visibility 20% more then common round fogs..fact
