I am trying to figure out a good place to put them that works well and doesn't
look to tacky.  On top of the bumper infront of the grill is not a possible
option.  I would like to put them in the bumper next to the turn signals where
those white reflectors now reside.  What is behind the plasic reflector.  Is
this possible/practical?  Any other

For USA spec cars, the reflector hides the bumper mounts.  The factory used to
sell a fog light kit (no longer avail, I've been told) that mounted the lights
in the lower grill below the bumper; they'd sell you a new grill with the
cutout, or thoughtfully included details on how to cut your existing grill.
Works well for fogs; just make sure they are short and shallow enough to fit
without interference.  The kit included triangular metal mounts; you could
easily fabricate your own.  Also, I've seen pictures of people mounting lights
inside the upper grill, without cutting the grill.  I suppose if you're
ambitious you could move the turn signals to the corner marker, and find mini
lights to go there; would need new dual-filament socket for the corner marker,
