I have the standard GT grill and have found myself using the fog lamps more often for a couple reasons. I like the extra light at night and I think it looks cool. I was curious how often and in what conditions other GT owners use theirs.

Almost exclusively. I have blackout covers on the headlights. 90% of the time...it's more than enough light. If I'm driving in the country, I take the covers off and use the headlights.

my fogs are lower on the facia and not in the grille.. I haven't driven the car much at all but will probably only use them when they're needed..
I told a buddy that I wished mine were in the grille (I just like the look) and he said he was always getting people flashing thier lights at him thinking he had his brights on, so he quit using his around town because of that.

I use them when I use the highways requiring that headlights be on when driving. I also use them as intended; "in foggy areas" :shigrin

I use them all the time because I figure 4 lights will maybe help the idiots I have to drive around to see me better. Anything I can do to keep them from wrecking into me. 60 mile or so round trip commute daily from KY to OH through Cincinnati.

I use mine all the time, as running lights. And I keep them on at night too. I love the look.

I use them all the time. Whenever the headlights are on, the fog lights are on too. I really like the added light and the look!

Thanks for the replies. It's good to know I'm not the only person that likes the look. Makes it look a little meaner IMO.

I leave them on Auto along with the headlights, so when my headlights are on the foglights are too. Without the fogs I don't feel like there is enough light. The lights suck on the standard 11' GT.

I usually have them on whenever I'm driving at night. Hasn't happened yet but if someone flashes their lights at me thinking I have my brights on I'll show them what the real HID brights look like. ;)

I've tried them once or twice and I really don't see enough of an improvement when using them with the stock (crappy) low beams. Other than that I never turn them on. And honestly, I think people just look silly driving around with their fog lights on just to have them on. I've flashed people driving with their fogs on before too because sometimes having even just low beams and fog lights on is a lot of light and makes it difficult to see with four bright lights coming directly at you. Especially at night when it's drizzling.

Yes, but only because I wear my sunglasses at night.

Fogs are useless light, that blind other drivers. All they do is shine light directly in front of the car, great for "fog". But, people gotta "look" cool, and run fogs. :rolleyes:

completely wrong. They don't blind anyone, they're pointed at the ground just in front of the car.
