Default '11+ wrx fog light bracket?

Hey guys, it's been awhile since I've used this site so hopefully start getting more of a chance to come back.

Recently, I saw subaru had posted a photo of David Higgins car and was I noticed was that they had built, basically, a pod that held a bigger light (almost looked like a hella 500) like the older wrx's.

This leads me to the question. It's been awhile since I've checked but has anyone come out with or designed something similar? I will include the link to the picture since I can't upload any pictures while at work.

Now, keep in mind that this doesn't look nearly as clean as I'd like it but it's an interesting concept and maybe someone could use the whole fog light 'square' if you will to make a pod that holds a bigger light.

I know some people go towards the light bar setup, but this could be a possible cheaper alternative.

I think HT auto is making a new fog bracket for the 11+ WRX/STI's.

Here's my setup:


Might be selling them later next week though.

I think that looks ridiculous. Fuctional on a rally car but driving around with those looks stupid.

This setup would be nice to have.

That's the one HT auto's thinking about making, IRRC. Problem is that the exact ones on that car looks like it required the bumper to be cut.

Did you bother to read the whole post? No one is talking about driving with those. I said an idea SOMETHING like that, that incorporated a 'pod' like mounting solution.

Hopefully if they do end up making a kit like that, they can incorporate using as much space as possible without modifying the bumper at all. older rs's and the wrx's had it right with the bigger fogs. Looking at that picture tony posted doesn't seem like the bumper needed modification and used the whole fog light space (which is what I wanted). Your setup is interesting and while that isn't the route I would want to take, I could see the functionality of having driving lights or any longer distance lights tucked inside there. This also gives the car a cleaner look imo.
