I have Hella Driving lights on my car that look like they really belong there. Are these factory driving lights? The are adjustable and look very much like a stock product. Is it aftermarket only or did they have a standard feature of Hella driving lights.

They are orig equiptment, but they are FOG lights. Turn on the head lights & pull the head light knob out. They work with the lo-beams only.

A real easy way to tell if they are "driving" lights or "fog" lights, is the appearance of the lense. Fog light lenses have all "grooves" cut on the inside of the lens. Sort of like vertical blinds. You can barely see the bulb it's self. Driving lights have very little "cuts" in the lens. They are usually 85-90% clear glass. Some people think driving lights are clear and fog lights are yellow. Actually you can both types of lights in either color. The difference is the cut of the lens.
