I'm thinking of doing my fogs now, just because currently they are so overpowered by the HID headlights it seems pointless to turn them on, but am concerned about the ballasts being exposed to the weather, and puddles lol. I have aftermarket H3 projector fogs, not the OEM ones, but I would still need a safe place for a ballast mount.
I've also read that to actually use fog lights correctly, you should turn them on and your headlights off. No one actually drives like this in fog though, and I'm not sure from the factory if you can operate this way in a lot of vehicles.
Also how good are the HID fogs in actual fog?
My ballasts are actually mounted almost as high up in the engine as my headlights. They mount up next to the radiator i would be suprised if weather got to them.
3000K do great in the fog. They are low to the ground and the yellow cuts through the fog.
They also make a sweet light output when combined with HID heads.
