I will personally scorch your retinas if you cut the reflectors off your headlights.

I don't need the foglights unless its that dark, and I typically use them for canyon runs (or rainy nights).

I have been thinking about doing it for a while... but as of yet I don't have the balls to do it alone. I'm down to hook up and bake them ****ers one weekend. I'm really not a fan of them orange reflectors.

Foglights are for fog. If you use them at night how does lighting the first 5 feet in front of your car help you see better?

I think you should try putting driving lights in first.

Or you can just try aiming them up a little higher (fog lights). That also works pretty good.

You know they are adjustable, right??

I adjusted mine within a few months of owning my car... much better light on the road and it still doesn't blind other drivers.

The combination of concentrated heat and cold rain did them in (2 years ago)

with too many lights...

Switch to Hella 500s instead. Take your pick of either fog or driving beam patterns.

I kinda miss my foglamps for canyon driving now since they sort of lit up the sides of the road and were useful for tight corners. I'm thinking of going back to foglamps and aiming them to the side.
