Default Pick a mounting location for my lights!

Relocating the FF200 driving lights off of the top grille to allow more air into the rad. Thinking A, B, or C... pick one and list why

Where they were before:


As it stands without the lights:

Won't the A location make the most sense, throw/visibility-wise?

On the highway, there's enough velocity to get air in there, but when I'm driving around town for a prolonged period (say <40mph) I found my oil temps to be running a little hotter than on the highway so I'm trying to see if removing the lights will help.

The only reservation I have about C is that I would be blocking about 2 1/2" of the intercooler fins on each side.

I vote for "C" though I did prefer the location of "B." If you are willing and able you could mount the lights in the bumper in the "B" location, but have them recessed/mounted flush with the bumper...

just an update, I went with the lower bumper opening, but went to a smaller sized, same shaped lights (optilux though, not "real" hellas )...Took out the center support to get more air into the FMIC too...
