which cost less? i have had the clear ones for just about two years and they have been nothing short of great. plus i only use them when it is foggy out. i hate when i see people using their fog lights because their stock setup is piss poor. what is up with that? but on the other hand i suppose if they got a car with a good oem lighting system they would still use the fogs at all times. one off question i had was that from what i have read before that the euro cars have rear fog lights? what/when would you use them? does anyone have a pic of these?

no i said that the clear ones look better than the ones on ebay that they said were hella. i have no comparisons to make with the other ones, just that i like the ones that i have and they work great.

links to zkw

Here are links to zkw OEM's from autopartswarehouse.com's ebay shop. HTey are 12 to 15 bucks cheaper than the webstore for that same company. Shipping is free. The left runs about 61 bucks and the right 63 bucks. So that's $124. its only $29 more. If that makes a difference.

http://motors.search.ebay.com/zkw-fog_W0QQfromZR40

if the link don't work search " zkw fog " in ebay motors and it it will bring it right up. I'm going for these once my paycheck comes in.

I think I have found(own) the beaten foster child of 318's.

Glass lens is tougher...

The glass lens will resist chips and pits better than the plastic lens, and look better over time. The clear lens seem to project light farther out than the much diffused stock Hella's. But either of all these choices will bolt right in with ease. Right now I have the clear lens in my kids car and they're pretty darn bright. The stock Hella's had just gotten beat up with road debris over the years and had a cracked lens (the true drawback of glass...). But either of these foglights will work well.
