PIAA 959 on an X3

Anyone put on PIAA 959 fog lights on their X3. I did a photoshop and is considering. I had these on my rice rocket back in the day but still love the look of them. These were also on the Eleanor car in Gone in 60 Seconds.

Yes, there's already a set of fogs on the car. But the look is what I'm after. Eleanor has three sets.

They're in the first file in the original post. The blue lights on bottom left and right are the Piaa's.

I like the look...........and would be interested in how much additional light they would illuminate the road. I like the idea of lower light, but further illumination further down the road and not blinding oncoming drivers. If you do this....post your procedure for mounting and electrical connections. Would you add another switch or tap into the existing fog light set up? Would need to be careful on the amount of current being drawn. Anyway...I like them!
