adding on fog lights

I have seen some 300sds around here that have extra fog lights added into the front bumper towards the bottom. They look really clean and sleek. Anyone have any ideas?

I have two sets of lights hanging below my bumper and while it's not "integrated" into the bumper, I think it still looks good. I don't have a digital camera so I can't snap a photo for you just yet, but when I can, I'll bring up this thread and post one.

Right, I have a pair where you have them, and I have a pair under the headlights. I actually found a pair of Bosch fog lights from 1983 (the year of my car) on eBay so I bought them because I thought it would be neat. Then, I got carried away and bought a pair of rectangular Hella 550 driving lights. The fogs are on the outside, the driving lights in.

Lighting will get to be an addiction for you and I wouldn't be surprised if in a few weeks you report on getting a new set to either replace or supplement the ones you have. If you do get new ones, get good ones because the difference is worth it.

thanks for the feedback. I was actually thinking of integrating them into the bumper. It would invole some cutting but It would definetly be worth. It would look like the front on an E55 with the fog lights in the bumper. I'll post some pics tommorow.
