Fog lights

Hi List!

I've just installed projector style fog lights on my 5KT. They're
British made, bought them for about $50 at the automotive superstore and
they're worth every penny of it. While not in use, they look very
discrete and almost factory-like, I'm very happy of that because I've
never wanted my car to look agressive. I know the law in most of the
coutries prohibits using fog lights in clear weather, but I get the
impression that the law doesn't quite follow the technology. The
projectors I've installed give very sharp light pattern, all the light
is directed onto the road so I'm certainly not blinding oncoming
drivers. And the improvement in lighting is spectacular. I was never
quite satisfied with the performance of my low-beams, although I have
dual Euro headlights. Now I'm finally comfortable driving at night.

PS. I've wired the lamps using fuse and relay slot provided for fog
lights in a fuse box. If anyone's interested in the wiring scheme,  I'll
be glad to help.
PS2. I've broken second door handle since I own the car. Arrrgh :-(
