Covers on = looks good
Covers off = functionality

how about ON during the day, and OFF during the night so your foglights can still be useful or off only when its foggy or raining

why are you going to cover up a light output? That's like those idiots who put the smoke tint on their HEADLIGHTS, reduced light output by 30% FTL!

Leave them off, sell that ****

i think its good to have both options as i do.. looks wise the covers on are better, but if you want to use the fogs, take them off.. not like it's hard

in the long run, if you use covers when you are sure you don't need fogs then you reduce the chance of them getting a huge crack in them.

that's what i've been doing lately with all the road construction

fogs are cool, but if you plan on getting a front mount later on, you should just leave it. most decent sized front mounts usually delete the fogs due to the piping. get a front mount and take the coves off so the piping show, loks badass to me.
as of now, it looks better with the fogs.

I like the covers on. If you're going to keep the fog light covers off, you might as well buy a set of JDM fog lights. Those look much better than the USDM fog lights.

uhh... considering you always need lowbeams and you only need fogs in the fog and should not be using them unless you're in the fog i think it's better to have the covers on. if you get into some fog you can always pull over and take them off again.

change the color of your bulbs (ie. green or red or pink) and turn them on

but keep the foglight covers on at the same time..

you can see the light shine through the slits at night and its cool.



yeah im an idiot.
just keep both setups, like me
