    I agree. There's been some negativity from a few users on this topic but I think it's awesome. I have no clue why no one has done this. I literally haven't found one pic of somebody retrofitting some full size lights to the corners

    I think that looks a lot better than the stockers the 3rd gens get.

    I'm glad you brought this topic up. I've actually been giving something like this a bit of thought lately too.

    From all I've read and seen on my car, the stock fogs are pretty worthless. I don't use the fogs very often, but when they are truly needed, it would be nice to have something that is up to the task.

    I'll be following along here and if I make any progress toward a fog light upgrade, I'll be sure to post it up.

    i think i have it worked out on how i want to do it. will prob bolt a bracket to the bumper rail inside that positions the light where i want it to fit within the allowed space on the stock bumper.
