I think they are annoying, plus they look shit :lol:

Fog lights are for just that, fog. And it's not like we cop any thick euro-style fog here anyway. Although they aren't as bad as dickheads that have rear fog lights on BOTH tail-lights and insist on leaving them on all the time. Kinda looks like they are riding the brakes

OK, i have an s13 as most of you know.
ANY s13 driver will agree with me on this one that s13 lights ARE HOPELESS. When the fog lights are you, you can acctually see where you are going.
Yes they are illigal - about a month ago i got pulled up and this bitch tried to defect me for them (and some other stuff :blink: )
Yeah so dont diss people that have them on whilst driving down dark ish roads coz without them u cant see sh*t.
When i first got my car i was like 'man how sick am i ive got yellow lights' and had them on all the time but then i realised i looked like a tool and just have them on when im driving somewhere a bit dark, or when ive got one light bulb thingo about to blow or blown, like i do atm :angry: (and before anyone says anything the high beam lights are shit too)
So to all you that are dissin people that use them to SEE ......... STFU.

i always drove round with my fog lights on at night simply because the silvia lights were so hopeless and dim and i needed the foggies on to feel safer. The one time i was pulled over when i didnt have my foggies on, the cops complained that my headlights were too dim and i was not allowed to drive the car any further. When i chucked the foggies on they changed their minds and said it was ok! Since then i had even more reason to drive with them on at night.

The other reason i like em is that i can spot another silvia a mile away lol

^^^So the solution then seems to be for all S13 owners to ditch the stock useless headlamps and upgrade to Xenon/bright white globes :yes: Cheap $30 upgrade and well worth it.

i drive with them on sometimes when its a dark country road, it does light the area up a bit more. Though i often knock the stupid button when i get into the car and you dont know there on because there is nothing on the dash to say that there on

So the fog lights have a seperate switch? Where's it located just out of curiosity?

it looks crap

but i do it at night, the stock headlights are a really narrow beam

i aimed my foggies down to the normal headlight level and it almost doubles what i can see on the road

My old S13 the fog lights were hooked up to the high beams there was no button for it. The lights were pretty useless even with the highbeams on it was still sh*t

haha i always wanted 2 know what this button did, now i know ;)

when ppl were saying fog lights i thought they just ment low beam, my previous statement still stands but maybe i might be able to see at nite..

i remember when i picked up my car.. driving home 100km's from outta melb, and remember saying god damn i cant see sh!t, it ill be lucky if i actually do make it home.. the low beam head lights are so damn sh!t...

When I had them, they were good on a foggy mountain run but other than that I never used them

Mainly put this poll up because i've seen people driving around the city in fairly well lit areas, not because of highway driving etc which is understandable because silvia lights are relatively shit.

But even so I was heading back from sydney to canberra the other night and put them on, and they were pretty useless. They made dick all difference to the brightness of the road ahead of me. Better off with high beams.

heheh i changed to some blue/white bulbs, probably a chinese copy. when one blew, i put one original bulb back in which appears to be brighter. strange, because the chinese ones were labelled 100w...

i want to gut out the yellow stuff from the headlight but dont know how

I use them when there is Fog or if it's pissing down with rain. No other reason to have them on.

its not just s13's, most new cars come with fog lights these days and i hate seeing people with light fogs on during a nice sunny day...

i understand theyre there for a purpose, if people need them to light up the road in front good on them, but they shouldnt be driving with fog and parkers on

I drive with them on because my headlights aren't that great, and they do help a lot. However, they aren't pointed too high up so they blind other motorists.

Wanker lights I say. It even says in most manuals that you use them in fog and rain yet some knobs insist on ricin' it up down George St with their foggies on.

Worst offenders and commo, falcon and rexxy drivers

I never used to, but when i read this post, i have occasionally turned them on, but it never lasts, i end up turning them back off within minutes, dont know why, just dont really see a point to having them on. I guess they kinda look ok though
