And what's a 19 year old doing with enough money for that car?  Can I
work where you do?  :)

Could one be aimed incorrectly?  There should be a couple of little
plastic screws deeply recessed next to each light--look and you'll see
them.  A good way to tell if one is not aimed right:  Find flat surface
next to a wall where there aren't too many other lights around.  Get
maybe 10 feet from the wall (OK, we're just estimating here this isn't
exact by any means), pointing at the wall.  Turn on the headlights/fog
lights.  Cover up the headlights with cardboard/newspapers/whatever. 
The fog lights should be pretty close to the ground; just make sure that
they're both level.

Can't quite remember, but maybe the bulb comes out the back?  Are the
fog lights in the front spoiler or are they in with the headlights?
Anyways before you do any replacing make sure that they're aimed
properly and both of them have the same kind of bulb--possibly one was
