no... ford do not... and dont try mounting the fairmont ghia fog lights in either... they are the wrong shape... get some aftermarket sports lighhts and custom mount them in... is a popular mod to do... just go to an "autobarn or super cheap" store for aftermarket foggies...

Na mate ford don't sell them anymore. I went there last week to get some and the guy said Ford don't sell them genuine anymore. He said try Bursons or Repco, and they didn't have any aftermarket ones either. So getting some from the wreckers, although they are as rare as rocking-horse s**t to get.

wreckers and abay are your best bet... seems to be anywhere from $80 to $150 pending condition of the pair...

If you get aftermarket ones make sure you put them in the bumber enough so that the vents can go back on. if you mount them on edge of the hole it will look tacky as they are not the right ones :)

why would you fit driving lights, then stick the vents back in front of them?
