do you want em for looks for to work? I think if you want them for looks in an EF fairmont, get the cornering lamps from the fairlane and wire them up as driving lights.

The only other option is to gte creative and have something hang off the front of your car. Like me! Probably not a thing of beauty, but my lights are there for shining, not for looking good.

The cornering lamps shine sideways out on an angle .. not in front really at all ... they may haelp in fog if you want to see off the side of the road ... but not really for distance at all.

I have a set of LightForce 240 Strikers to put on the ute .... I just need a decent nudge bar now ... and "hoping" to low mount them (if they fit under the nudge bar) ... but seeing as they are 24cm in diameter ... they are kinda big ... but with a 1.5-2km range ... they are great for dark highways and freeways (especially where I live).

I had them on the Territory for a short time ... but the fiancee hated the size of them.
