Depends on the year, we never know, last year we got a ton at many different times, says a foot on the best. Past years nothing.
In NC you can experience all 4 seasons in 7 days with different weather anomalies every day, and this week is starting to be that.

So it is 1a.m. and i got some images on the way home.
I can tell a difference, more light closer to the car and on the sides of the road.
Ill try to post in order.
Low
Low+Fogs
Low+High
Low+High+Fogs

Plus the sky looks strange, almost like snow!!

Is it better? What's it like with your new globes when your standing in front of it? Mine only had standard globes, but still pretty bright.

I played with the fog switch going down the road with the highs on, and could see a difference. There is much more light lower on the road and down the sides of the road when the fogs are on with the high beams.
I think it is sharp with the new assemblies and the LKM keeping it all lit up. Im darn near blind so i need all the light i can get. I get tons of compliments on the assemblies alone because i only run city lights and fogs until i get new HIDs kit, before when i had HID i would run my low beams and fogs on 24/7. But a lift kit is being debated for my jeep over the HIDs, if i go HID again, or rather when, Im doing 3 kits, low, high, and fogs.
Ill try to get some pics tomorrow of the lights all at night, almost 1:30 and tomorrow is a busy day, or should i say later on today is busy since it is a new day already.

Hey ZH, quick question. My front passenger fog light might have a short to ground. I say this because it goes on with the parking lights and the fog light switch being off. The front driver side foglight does not turn on unless the foglight switch is on. To get to the point, when i switch on the fog light switch my F/ Fog Light error comes up on my cluster. Could that be that the car thinks the passenger side foglight is not working?

I would get under it and start tracing wires, then look into the LKM.
