I had a revelation...

Ok. So I'm treating myself to some stuff for Christmas...I'm having a TSX retrofit done, with semi-flat black painted headlight housing, and a Gatling Gun projector shroud (painted gunmetal gray). I'm also ditching the eBay HIDs, and getting the el richo "Digital" HID kit for my low-beams (55W 8000K). I've also got PIAA Super White LED bulbs for my parking lights...The thing is though, I'm tired of the JDM "fog lights" I'm rocking currently. They're not effective, at all. It's like they're just really bright side-markers, but in the front of my car lol. They hardly add to my vision; and I've got some 35W 3000K HIDs in them and everything...Here's the question: should I dump them and get ACTUAL fog lights? I was thinking the USDM projector fog lights. My buddy has them with 35W 3000K HIDs; and I can ACTUALLY SEE SH*T with them. Also, they'd look nice with my new TSX projectors. Not to mention, they're not common. Actually, to be honest, I'll eventually get the USDM fogs regardless; I just want some input from you guys.

Also, post pics if you've got retrofits and projector fogs. I can only find a few pics in google. Thanks

OH YEA, THE POINT OF THIS THREAD...Do you guys know of a place to buy these? The online OEM Honda Store place has them for $250...I got my JDM fogs for $150 (it was a good deal, but still...).

Re: I had a revelation...

are you sure you have the foglights aimed correctly? and youre only supposed to see directly in front of you with them lol. theyre not supposed to be far reaching lights. as for the usdm ones. go for it if you like the look man.

Ever consider retrofitting the fogs? The v.1 replicas can be had for cheap and they can be retrofitted. The v.2 replicas and legitimate Stanley fogs have metal casing so they would be pretty impractical to retrofit. Just throwing an option out there. Here's a picture of it done.
