What does your bumper support size wise?? Id want something that looks stock. You could always get HID fogs.

Does your car have provisions for factory fogs?

not an option on the SHO's either. Typically what people do with Gen3's is they put a pair of round fogs in the upper grill inbetween the turnsignals and on either side of the ford logo after removing the plastic in there, kinda rallie style.

Here are some pics of some other Gen3 lighting choices:

Fogs on the taurus are nice honestly, the headlights sit fairly high and are poorly designed so they yellow and don't provide the best visibility. same for the Gen2's, they yellow up and aren't very good, so some aftermarket fogs really can help visibility at night (Especially in areas out by me where we don't have streetlamps, but we have lots of deer.)

again, Taurus lighting sucks, fogs add extra light which is nice to have.

In my area, we get lots of fog, as well as white-outs like today cause we have no cover.

the corn fields have the irrigation ditches that basically in certian conditions are mini swaps all up and down the road and fog like crazy.

Yes really. The only time fogs helped me was when they were brighter and that was in my Grand Prix. Once the HIDs when it, they went back to being pretty much useless. Thats why Im not too interested in upgrading them on the Regal. Too much headache for what?? Something that would look cool after spending some coin that I could have used for go fast?? Nah.

The way they look in dasfincs pics would be your best bet. However, IMO it looks cheesy to put lights somewhere they never belong. I laughed at a guy that put lights behind his grills on a GP.

Yea, my pilot foglights put out more light than my goddamn headlights on my gen2 SHO, gen3's are better, but not by much.

I liked the way the foglights light the road immediatly infront of me so I can leave my brights on while out crusing the country roads and see both near and far since when you turned the brights on the gen2 SHO you loose like all light immediatly infront of the car.

another thing too, if you are using Ebay 'hyper white' or blue bulbs, take them out, throw them away, and buy silverstars. those hyperwhite bulbs LOOK crisper at night, but often than not provide less over-all light than a set of replacement silverstars. same for fog, the blue/hyperwhite tends to just come back at your face in the fog while the slightly 'yellowed' normal headlight bulbs don't do that as badly.

There should be a Torque head bolt behind each headlamp IIRC to adjust up and down.
