The only time I drive with them on is when it's overcast, rain, fog or at night. I leave the foglight switch on, so every time I turn on the low beams, the fogligts will come on too...

I'm still trying to find out how to get the fogs to stay on when I turn the highbeams on...

I drive with the fog lights on all the time so people can see the yellow fog lights all day and night.

Since pretty much every bmw has them, i see no point in showing them off unless they're needed.

Only at night. Do they really make a difference in the fog?

Yea, I read that since it is lower than the headlights it illuminates the road better since the headlights reflect off the water molecules in fog... or something like that. Someone correct me if I'm wrong :confused:

cops pulled me over twice for having my foglights on when there's no fog or heavy rain. It would have cost me 65 USD but they let me go.
So now I don't drive with fogs on anymore

I used to when I had all that Eurolite garbage :D

But now I'm using stock bulbs and amber lenses. I don't drive with the fogs on because I think it takes away from the rest of the car. With my fogs on all people can see is that my bimmer is stock! With them off, they can see my M3 bumper, etc. I'm actually trying to convert my headlight harness so I can turn my headlights off as well.

You know you have to stop driving with your fogs on when a Honda guy calls you rice for turning them on during the day. :D

I always drive with my fogs on, the button is pushed in and when i turn the parking lights on they come on automatically.

I think bimmers look so much better with the fogs on

Why are you scared? are they ticketing there for having the fogs on?

I did not know you could drive a BMW without the fog lights on LOL. I use them at night only.

it is not a reason showing off, it is just car looks meaner with fogs on.


Fogs on, is not an issue with cops in Canada

I always drive with my fogs, as well. It goes good with the clear corners.

I usually have them off, but when I'm on a country road that's not lit well, I turn them on because I can see what's around me.

the stock fog lights can not blind u cuz they're aimed on the ground. the aftermarket shit people put on themselves will blind u cuz they set them up facing up.

and whenever my lights are on the fogs are on as well.
the car looks so mean when u just turn on the parking lights and the fogs. just need some DDE's to finish it up. and no jon i don't need no ellipsoids yet *wave*

I have them always on @ night, & when I'm blasting away @ 120km/hr plus. It MIGHT increase my visibility w/the other vehicles that I pass.

The fog lights look better off on my car because if i have them on with the headlights then they don't match my xenons and look dumb..

i do most of the time unless i plan on driving fast... cops are more likely to aim a radar gun to a car with fog lights on than one with them off. So, i only do it to cruise around.

I know this from experience when I got nailed for speeding and he admitted it. Makes sense too.

p.s. i won that ticket.

With fogs on, they can't say "I didn't see you." when they cut me off, or speed through an intersection and smoke me. I HAD 4 LIGHTS ON!

I have the same logic. A car looks so much sportier and therefore more likely to speed with the fogs on. It's a double-edged sword.

Mine are off if I'm not just cruising.

Wow, I never thought about the cops looking at it that way. I figured with the regular fogs they wouldn't care as they're not blue tinted, etc. I'll have to remember that.

There is a relay you can bypass, but keep in mind it is illegal to have more then 4 high powered (+55W) lamps on at anytime on the front of your car. That said IŽve considered bypassing that relay also.

nelson, were you able to turn your mom's headlights off? I think we can use a relay from an 89 E34, cuz they can turn those lights off. Or a US relay.

i turn on the fog lights only sometime in the day and all the time in night cuz i hook up the angel eyes to the fog lights infact when lining up at T H ... i just keep the fog light and the angel eyes on.

Not that I know of, I was under the impression that the DRL was hardwired into a board somewhere in our cars, but IŽll look into that 89 relay thing when I get back into town.
