Fog Proyector Lights
My current fog lights are less than ideal, as many owners complain about their inefficiency.
One of the lenses is leaking water into the assembly and I need to repair it (re seal it) and replace the wiring harness which has become rusted and it's in bad shape.
In doing research, I've found more "modern" looking fog lamps made by DEPO which have clear lenses but are still reflector type lamps. I also came across a couple of proyector based fog lamps that are a direct replacement for the factory ones. The quality is completely unknown but everything else being equal, proyector lights are better than reflector ones.
Has anyone tried these? If so, are you pleased with the result?
I don't want to go HID since I already have factory HID low beams and like the feature that when the car is locked and the lights were ON, the fog lights stay on for 30 seconds or so to allow me to see where I'm going (HID's would have an issue with this).
