Now I'm pretty much forced to buy them. I got to the car wash today and when I went to wash the front end, my driver's side fog light was gone <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Oh well, I guess I need to figure out the best HID's now. <p>No idea when it fell out, but it must have shattered, there is a piece of glass wedged between my tailpipes now.

Okay, I'm going to order the 55w 5000k fogs, do I need to add the wiring harness and the bulb out indicator thing?? Or can I just order the bulbs?

Nevermind, it looks like that only applies to the regular headlights, not the fogs. If I'm not correct, let me know.

Re: (Husker Z)

If you're still considering getting HID fogs, I'd be down for a set if a GB would make them cheaper!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> I'd have to flip through "R" Kelly's Adventures in R Lighting thread IOT determine exactly which ones we should consider; I will do that this evening. I am late for an appointment currently...<p>-Steve

Re: (FORD420diesel)

I got my 2006 replacement lamp from this guy on the bay and it is nearly identical to stock for less than half the price. I had to change the electrical connector but that is simple. Just make sure you check if you need the clear lens or the opaque lens, mine had the opaque so I replaced them both. Much more light output with the clear lens. <p><A HREF="http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/VOLVO-S60R-V70R-04-07-STOCK-FOG-LIGHT-NEW-L-OR-R_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trkparmsZ72Q3a317Q7c66Q3a2Q7c65Q3a12Q7c39Q3a1Q7c240Q3a1318Q7c301Q3a1Q7c293Q3a1Q7c294Q3a50QQ_trksidZp3286Q2ec0Q2em14QQhashZitem5d24655deaQQitemZ400042581482QQptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories" TARGET="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors...ories</A>

Re: (Husker Z)

How hard are these to replace? I had the mounting screws "fall out" of the passenger side fog recently (at least that's what I think happened), and need to take care of that asap.
