Fog lights turned on during the day: Stupid.Also, just for fun, whats your take on Yellow fogs?
Interesting link. So yellow fogs don't actually help illuminate any better than white but we perceive it as brighter than other colors in the spectrum.
I thought this explanation made better sense than anything else I've ever read: "the light pattern on a good-quality fog light goes straight out at bumper level and down, but not higher than that. . . . The reason for this is that fog tends to hover about 12 to 18 inches off the ground. So by projecting light in that fog-free pocket, you can illuminate the road a greater distance from your car and therefore see farther ahead."So the secret to good fogs depends on if they are beamed in the right direction right?
You sound like a perfect candidate for the Euro light switch enabling your rear fogs. I did the rear foglight mod for just the reason you stated. In rain or even light fog, with a gray car, I want people to see me.Agree with the links and the idea that projecting lower is better.....
I think my fogs helped just recently on a drive through the mountains in heavy fog.
I don't get a lot of fog where I live, but I do use the fogs and just running lights when there is light rain and I don't really need the HIDs...I like the idea that the front is lit (angel eyes and fogs) and the rear is lit (marker lights) and I'm not burning the HIDs for no reason. I want the lights on both ends, not so I can see, but so people can see me.
That was the first mod I did to my car. I now have lego pieces actually performing a function in my highly engineered german vehicleYou sound like a perfect candidate for the Euro light switch enabling your rear fogs.
