HIDs in fogs are stupid for a variety of reasons.
First, in that housing they are far more likely to blind someone.
Second, the design and placement of the fogs on the e36 is very poor. When they are on, and hot, the glass have been known to crack due to rapid temp changes.
Third, you don't want bright lights in fogs. Drive with your highs on in a thick fog. You'd get the same effect with HIDs. No visibility. If you are doing it for the look, save the money and buy silverstars.

Right. They run about $30 for a pair or less. While they will still impair your vision, they wont do it nearly as much as HIDs would and look close to HIDs in color.
