Well, it is good that you made a thread about fog lights, because I am going to replace mine. I took a rough measurement and it seems that they are 3" high by 6" wide. I didn't take the depth measurement.

So, what kind did you buy? I was thinking about buying these at a pricey $430 CAD @ JB Power Centre > http://www.eautoworks.com/html/ORD-1-1-1-5443.cfm . < That is a website that has the type of light that I want and it is not the actual JB Power Centre's website.

If there are any other suggestions, please let me know. I have checked a few junkyards here in Edmonton, but to no avail. Factory foglamps are hard to come by unless I go to the Honda dealership, and that is not happening.

The OEM foglamp housing refracts with yellow. Even if you replaced them with yellow bulbs. It would not make a difference.

I replace mine with 100w white h3. Its drastically pushing the OEM limit of 55w but they're extremely bright. And the bulb is clear but the housing still brings them out yellow. I'll get some pics sometime to show.

So there's really no need to get yellow bulbs if you have the OEM housing installed.

I've seen MANY people do this with their stock fogs. What do you mean it refracts?

Nevermind, lol. I get it. With regular bulbs it shines yellow. Right? I'm willing to bet a yellow bulb makes a difference though.

Im pretty sure you are wrong. I looked @ your garage & you have an 88 or 89 Lude. The 90-91's have different fog housings & dont refract yellow w/stock bulbs. I wish they did though :| .

I wonder how yellow those "h3 xenon bulbs" really are though on a 91 housing.

^ cgm12mgc's light setup is sick. That's an 88 or 89 & the yellow fogs make the headlights look so much whiter. That's the look Im going for but I have a '91.

(cgm: hope you dont mind me using your sig as an example :smilejap: )
