driving lights to SEE better at night? or the fairlane ones which light up the gutter and are more for looks than anything else... (Fairlane turning lamps)

If you check my gallery ive got pics of the driving Fairlane turning lamps fitted to my ef fairmont.. :wink:

well the fairlane turning lamps wont help much if you wanta see better at night.. they only use brake lights for globes.. you'd be better off with some aftermarket spotties... :wink:

how are those lights on your fairmont? do they light up the whole road?
my lights are pretty dull unless you have them on high beam. would xenom globes help make them brighter or would i be better off getting some driving lights!

dont bother with my lights if you want to light up THE ROAD.. mine only LIGHTLY light up the gutter due to the globe being a BRAKE light globe and the globe is set at an angle to shine light onto the gutter..

Yeah the Fairlane lights are just a wank factor, and I like to wank.

I'm going to install those bulbs in the headlights everyone raves about. I forget the name, but you get the kits off ebay.

HIDs ^^^

I had the awesome (or stupid) idea of getting fog lights or whatever and cutting up the inside of some cornering lights and fitting the new ones inside and aiming them forward, that way you get the light and looks 8-)

Lol, sounds good in theory. But I guess you've looked at the lens (cover) on the cornering lamps and seen how the lens itself is designed so that the lights fly off to the side.
