Wondering if its really worth hooking up. I looked at a bunch of threads and it seems many would just put them in w/out wiring. Personally I like the look of yellow fogs on bottem like the Lexus'. :)

Why wouldn't you want ot wire them up? I got the crapppy ones from Heronew, that just point straight down, and a little to the sides and I got them wired up.
And I also have the PIAA Crystal Ions in them.
I also like the yellow lights down there (Lexus look), just want better lights in the housings.

Not sure how heronew's fogs will hold up if I wire them to turn on with the parking lights. I was just wondering if I should take the time and wire them up or just pop them in if the fog housings aren't going to hold up to being on all the time w/ the headlights.

Yes, wire your fogs and hit me up on my cell so you can walk me through it step by step since my fogs have been in the box for almost 3 months...

I can see why your hesitant on wiring them up.

I can only speak of my experience, but I wired them up. No use, those crappy lights that come with Heronew's set rusted out b/c they aren't air tight and water got in. Happened to both sides, so it kept on blowing the fuses.

Now I just have them on for looks.

They also do nothing for visibility... they look all cross eyed because the lights are not adjustable. Another local fellow here had one of them fall out on him.

There's two problems with Hernonew's fogs, for that matter, all aftermarket fogs for the sport bumper:

1. the housing is fixed so that the lamps only fit one way in (can't adjust them, all you see are mucked up light patterns)

2. crappy housings... they're close to the ground so they get the worse treatment of dirt and water --- they do not survive if you live in a rainy location

Damn, I bought mine like a month ago. So I'm basically counting down the time until these things go huh?
