Yeah, me too. After 10 years of owning my 02 Expedition, I just figured out how to turn the fog lights on so I'm making up for lost time, douche-bagging my way 'round town every chance I get.

Of course I run with them on on the fastback too because, damn, they just look so fine.

I do not, however, use them on the 02 GT because they're burnt out and I'll be damned if I'm paying the giraffe-***** high price to replace them anymore.

They're like $10 for a bulb... a short giraffe's *****, maybe.

Well, considering my old 1157's are 10 for 12, that is high.

Are they really that cheap now? Every time I've gone to look for them in AutoStone or O'Reilly's they were almost 30 a crack but I haven't looked in a couple years.

Driving around with the fog lights on is not nearly as bad as modifying the headlamps without aiming them properly.

Or tinting the lenses without brighter bulbs to make up for it. That goes for the tail lamps, too.
