I understand they cast a nice wide beam, really low down. The ones on my 1995 Saab 9000 don't cast it very far forward. Maybe they'd be useful if I were looking for a contact lens on the side of the road, but I don't do that when I'm driving. The beam is so short, it never helps. I suspect that they're just not very good fog lights, which means I've never had good fog lights. In the 1987 9000S I had, I got the aftermarket Saab foglights, and they were just as bad. And why is using front foglights bad when they're not needed? I don't use mine ever, but when foglights are properly aimed on other people's cars, they don't get in my eyes. They just look stupid. -- Tom Reingold IT Guy looking for work in NJ or NYC
