Re: Question about HIDs (fogs)

OK Steve, just that you have taken the time to explain the differences, I am going to give your product a try. I use my fogs basically as DRLs, so they are on most of the time. I find it irritating that I have to always check on whether both bulbs are on or not. In fact, with my X5, I just have gotten in the habit of pressing the foglight button twice, which I know is not good for the HIDs when they do ignite (turning them on and off a lot).

Thanks for everyone's input!!

Re: Question about HIDs (fogs)

Hi,

My pleasure. Are your fogs getting a constant 12V though in DRL mode?

Are they turning on as soon as the car is started?

Steve

Re: Question about HIDs (fogs)

What I meant was I almost always turn them on when I drive the Jeep (or the X5), so I use them like they are DRLs.

Re: Question about HIDs (fogs)

Just spoke with a friend who is a PA state trooper. He said it is not illegal to have only fogs on when the weather is nice.

Re: Question about HIDs (fogs)

A vehicle may be equipped with not more than two fog lamps mounted on the front which may be lighted, in addition to the required front lamps, only when atmospheric conditions, such as fog, rain, snow, smoke, or dust, reduce the daytime or nighttime visibility of other vehicles to less than 500 feet.

-looking on google, i saw it is illegal in almost every state out there and in europe. i have been pulled over for it in pennsylvania by PSP, didnt get a ticket though. but he told me it is a pretty substantial fine.
