Default HID foglights

Anyone running HIDs in their foglights?

I like the idea of hids, but I would like to keep my car as "DL" as possible(at least at night )

having them in the fogs lets me simply turn them off.

pics would be awesome !

The trouble with HIDs in the fogs is that having that much light for a fog pattern would likely cause even more glare instead of increasing visibility. Also, the stock fogs are H3, and it might be tough to put in a HID capsule since they tend to be pretty long. If you go with projector fogs, you might not have a problem with fitment. YMMV...

I'm pretty sure it is just by looking at it. Looks like pretty extensive damage and one lucky driver considering how big and heavy moose can be.
