    Cracked fog light. Suggestions?

    I was disappointed to find 3 large cracks in my driver-side fog light. I have no idea how they got there. After doing some reading, I learned I need to replace the entire housing.

    Now Iím thinking, maybe I should have some fun with this. Do you guys have any suggestions? I saw a couple options for inserts, and think maybe gloss black would looks pretty dope with gloss black trim and grille on a silvergray.

    New type of fog light? Projector? Different color?

    Open to suggestions

    I have a spare depending on what side you broke and whether or not the glass is the fluted kind or clear

    Something similar happened to me but I decided to just delete them and install delete covers.

    I've always been a fan of the yellow lenses, think it looks great on any color. Think those combined with the double cup would look great... that's the route I'm planning on going, anyway.

    Wasnt able to open the page for some reason but i have heard of the morimotos. Will consider it, but not sure how much it will help me practically.

    I broke the driver's side. Is fluted when the lens looks ribbed? Mine is not that.

    You have a TiAg, so if you could get some pics eventually and show me, I could think about it. Sounds cool though I want to start doing some more original stuff with the ZHP

    Dang, I just bought new OEM fogs over the holidays and now you've got me thinking about switching.
    That product page layout is awful, though. Gray text for the product details on a patterned gray background? Video didn't seem very informative, either...
