Are there any fogs for the tC. Not that I need them that much (maybe twice a year), but I would love to fill up those sockets on the bottom of the air dam!

Well I'd install them myself, but I still think $351 is alot. They better be bright as hell, maybe even HID for that price. To me, I'd rather buy some, and build a custom housing that can be painted to fit in those holes..... hmm.... maybe if I get some time this fall I'll work on that.

HID foglights would look sweet on the tC...as long as they come switched, not that most people with fog or driving lights bother to ever turn them off anyway.

sorry for the newb question (as always) but what does HID stand for, and what makes them that much brighter (and much more expensive too)?

i didn't know HID foglights existed
Hmm... some ppl in Cali actually put HIDs as fogs to hide from the police ... Instead of driving with their headlights... they drive with their foglights on... that way they could always switch to their normal & legal headlights when they see a police...
