I know I made driving lights.
I wanted driving lights. These "fog lights" are not really good fog lights, true fog lights are yellow in color because yellow doesn't diffract as much in the fog, it penetrates. Not only are they white, in stock form they are really too dim to be of any real use.
The light shield should be reflective on the inside to improve the amount of light going to the main reflector, but it wasn't made that way, also the shield shrouds too much of the bulb, just the tip is all that needed to be shrouded.
The fog lights were probably not high on the designer's checklist. I have to say, the headlights are almost perfect on the car though, so I guess I can forgive them for flawed fog lights.
The output pattern has changed, the light projects a bit farther, and there is some (not very bright) emission off to the side, much like the low beams have.
The glare is not bad, it's nothing like leaving your high beams on since they are down so low and the bulb is 35w instead of 65w. Not to mention the're aimed down instead of up.The cops don't seem to care nor have other drivers seemed to mind. No flashes and no single finger salutes. If the cops did care, they WOULD have pulled me over, cops in town are really picky about lighting.
They typically give warnings for the first time they get you for a lighting violation since not too many people know the law. (they just changed it) I knew a rice burner guy in high school who got a warning for his blue headlights, they were too blue and were too dim. I told him so, but he had to find out. He got pulled over the night he put them in. Even some types underglow are illegal in town so I hear, so the're pretty strict.
The people who annoy me the most are the lifted truck guys, their headlights are aimed right at my face!
