Default Add on fog/driving lights?

My 05 touring didn't come with fogs, so I'm thinking of adding something.
Anyone add fogs or daytime running lights to theirs?
I kind of like the look of the little led strip lights, too.

Joe,
My 05 did come with flights, I use them as my drls. I have upgraded to the halo foglights projectors and liked them every since. I was using the halo as the drl and then the hids as the fogs. I have since then put led strips (red) inside the projector making demon eyes when the white halo is on, so no more just halos for drls. I just use my foglights now for daytime driving.

Its an '05..
Don't '05s already have day time running lights ?
They are an excellent idea !
As are strong fog lites...but these may be optional, but even during the no-fog times these lights are good to have..

Earthworm,
Mine didn't have drls. I being a medic and living in Germany for so long have been accustomed to driving with my lights on (as its a requirement in Germany for medic personnel). I have been doing it so long that it does not bother me to switch the foglights in everyone I get in the car, I don't even think about it now and its a habit.

Many here have.

Lots to research on this site alone

This is how I did it when I added fog lights.

Thanks for the posts!
I've been reading thru them (most of which I already did before starting this thread) but I don't see anyone using led running lights.
Most I've seen retro fitted stock fogs.

Anyone using led strips?
I think I might like that look.

No. '05s do not have driving lights. Just the old-fashioned low beam headlights - unless equipped with fog lights - they are not standard.

I like that method the best,but I thought yours could be on even with the H/Bs on?....That way YOU can decide when they are on or off!
It just makes sense that sometimes you want the H/Bs on to cover distance, and the fogs on at the same time to cover whatever's immediately out in front.....Right?
