Help,
I'm about to buy one of these sets on ebay. One is the DEPO brand. Is DEPO good for FOGS?

The other is an un-marked brand but state they are Glass Lenses. Both look good. But only one is better even though both are the same price at around $64.oo.
What do you think?

Oh...the one with the yellow wiring and green switch is NOT the DEPOS. The DEPOS are the other set with the red wire and metal clips.

I recently bought a set of Hella fogs and brackets that fit great--on ebay. I think they might have said they were ZKW. At any rate they work well and look great. I don't know about the depo's. I got an oem type fit and look in the Hellas from the seller id: thelittleguyent. Fast shipping and friendly service. 62.99 each and free shipping, with brackets included.

98 328i, black/black, manual, canadian sport pkg, ECIS intake, koni sport adj's, dinan springs, oe/oem clears.
Considering: tms shark,M 17" wheels, larger sway bars.

got my cc for 55 shipped in a group buy, with brackets. The bulbs i have are silverstar, and as u can see dont match umnitzas bulbs very well. Maybe once i get my blue lamin-x on my fogs it will.
