Mustang In Fog Conditions

I was completely satisfied with my foglights tonight, today was the real test for these bulbs as we had dense fog in orlando.
Just wanted to share with you guys
Sorry for bad quality pictures, my phone barely got the flash through the fog.

Not sure what your state laws are for 6-8 lights, that could be a problem. Also a couple of your lights look pretty bright, but that might be because of the camera/angle. Even if it is legal, it screams look at me and makes your car stick out like a sore thumb.

Well maybe it's just me, but just looking at it blinds my eyes for some unusual reason. xD

What kinda fogs are those? Those are very bright.

I like your fog setup though.

Another reason you might get a ticket is with those 4 foglights . If you do drive with all headlight and foglights on, then you can get pulled over for having more than 4 lights on in the front.

Let me clear things up:
I asked a police officer about it and he said ok as long as I have no more than 4 lights on, I would never turn all 6. And yes yellow is allowed in Florida but in the form of fog lights only. Cant use yellow on headlights in any vehicle.
And for the brightness, i wish they are that bright, but as you said its because of the camera, they dont blind traffic like Hids. They are yellow halogen bulbs.

Looks really good Haitham. Would love to have a set of fog lights, maybe down the road.

Ignore those " too bright-cops are not gonna like it" comments. Its looks great. If you can see better in fog-I know fog, and others see you better-then all the better.

Exactly, these yellow lights dont blind incoming traffic and look cool.
When I was driving yesterday, I tried my oem hids by themselves, and the result was garbage. They were so bright to an extent all the light was reflected back to me instead of penetrating through the fog.
Thesedays we can see drivers doing crazy stuff, I think the DMV should impose new driving license tests for everyone. Like for example, 70% of the drivers yesterday were using their fog lights and high beams together!? Thats called blinding incoming traffic.

How would they be doing that? Most, if not all, factory fog lights are wired to shut off when you turn the high beams on.

I like yellow fogs more than white, I think they're more effective. Plus they look unique.

Looking good, OP.

I think they're not running their brights. Remember you're alot lower than they are so their regular light will look like brights. Happens to me all the time. Just about all newer truck headlights look like brights anymore.

I'm not saying it was aliens...but it was aliens.

I agree with you at this point, but we have a lot of lifted trucks in here and most of them install cheap 6000-8000 hids. Imagine that being behind you.
I dont know why so many use their high beams in florida, as if the roads are not lit.
