Hi guys, My dad just bought a 96 EL Fairmont and wants to get some driving lights for it, Where would i best find these for a reasonable price? I am scared to call ford as i know the price is bound to be outrageous. Cheers

The ones you're referring to that replace the air vents in your bar arent actually driving lights, they're cornering lights. You can wire them into your parkers/low beam but its useless.
If the headlights are faded best bet is to buy a new set with decent globes, the difference is pretty big.

any auto shop,you need a unibar to mount them on,fitted to the front bar and your choice of lights,i use the navra 100 watt x2,wired to the high beam on the ltd,and 100 watt x2 in the pods on the xr8---seperate,aircraft lights for long distance.
