      I like the connection of the LED with the other low beam light very much but I must admit it looks a lot nicer at night/evening.
      If it was on my car I would have recessed them inside the none-fog covers so it's not so dominant during the day.

      The lights on the none-foglight covers are flush with the "fins" that's on the cover :-)

      Nice install!
      Horsepower is how fast you hit a wall. Torque is how far you take that wall with you

      I was about to say it!

      A Ford with a Peugeot/Ford cooperation engine matched to a Ford transmission, fixed to a Ford suspension setup with Ford size brake calipers and Ford brake discs, ... No matter where he turns his eyes in the S40 1.6d, FoMoCo is written all over it

      BUT imagination can move mountains... Well, sometimes at least

      How much did it cost you to do those fogs?
