Fog lights

Can anyone suggest a pair of fog lihgts for my 06 SE. I have found lots, but I always read reviews about crappy mounting options etc.. so can anyone suggest a pair that will mount easily on my stock bumper. I don't want to spend a fortune but would like to get a decent pair. There are so many choices it would be nice to have some recommendations. thanks!!

I have PIAA's and I would recommend them, but they are driving lights, not fog lights, which means they are straight beams of light that shine forward forever rather than a big bubble of illumination that fog lights are. PIAA makes fog lights though if you're interested. They're more expensive than most, but highly engineered to be awesome.

I guess I worded it wrong than I'm looking for offroad lights, straight beams of light.

I have both types and I change them here and there.. Square HELLA for short beam and straight beam round CARELLO 170 (rally lights).

how about pics?

don't mean to steal the thread but does anyone have pics of their beauts with fog lights installed? I'm trying to decide where to put some. I'll either put them on the sides of the new bumper, which leads to some drilling which i don't favor much. installing mounts on the top of the brush guard or buying winshield mounts(which sorta defeats the purpose of fog lamps, i'd have to go with off-road beams instead)

here's acouple pics to see the bumper

I love my KC's. Have them mounted on the front bumper and they give me all the light I need when I need it.

I've heard that if you put them on the windshield hinges or in place of those rubber bumpers on the hood, you get a wicked glare off the hood and you can't really see anyway....
