HID fogs not in projectors will blind oncoming drivers. there is no cut-off pattern.I really don't think it matters as far as if your worrying about your hid fogs blinding people. They won't. But if you just need to spend some money, get projectors for a more professional look i guess. :dunno:
(I didn't see this response on the poll)
Do you have pics of that setup?projector fogs by themselves i don't think look as clean or flush. they are generic "eyes" surrounded by differing plastic housings for different cars. the glass "eye" does not sit flush or aerodynamic. that is why i installed the projector inside an M3 style foglight. if you have a HID system, projectors are so much better for a driving light.
I haven't really noticed that as much. I have the ones from Bavauto, and the side output isn't that bad. Many raccoons and a deer would have lost their life if it wasn't for the fogs.yea i did the same, i retro'ed them into my foglight housing. but even then, they don't do the job as well. fogs are supposed to be pointing to the sides and a little towards the middle (sort of making a W shape where the 2 V's are the light pointing to the sides). but the projector fogs takes all that away and and disperses the light evenly across. it loses intensity where it's most needed, the sides. hence why they are useless. on trucks or something like that, i would understand the use of projector fogs. or even if you retrofit better projector fogs where the light is more intense than that will be better
now if it's just purely for aethetics, i'd just go with the projector fogs to keep from blinding people.
-HID bulbs emit less heatI hear a lot of speak about the HID fogs. Is there an actual setup, or are you guys just buying the HID bulbs and plugging them in?
Aren't there concerns of the bulbs melting the housing / wiring not being adequate?
yea it's not that bad when the weather is clear, but in the fogs (which is why they are called foglights), they don't work like they are supposed toI haven't really noticed that as much.
