That sucks. I probably won't be tracking my car often enough to justify it (aka pointless in my case).

Not to mention that I will be running a setup of the LED strip+hyper yellow fog lights (: But if you buy the car without fogs you might do it for the "coolness factor" (or rice, depending on your views) even if you don't track it, I guess?

Agreed.

Though in England there is fog quite often I don't normally put my fog lights on. Dipped beams are enough to do the job - especially with Xenons/HIDs

I would put in cooling ducts if the parts are easily available

Yeah I think i'll end up getting rid of them... Maybe put in a CAI or something.

Excuse the off-topicness: why are fog lights banned??

Wait, maybe for lower cars it's different but in tall cars I think the fogs help a TON in the fog...

Becos that's the stupid law we have to deal with here!!!

Well turning on the fog lights when there is no fog can blind oncoming traffic.

I'd rather leave it fogless (if the trim I get doesn't have one stock) or duct it if I'm feeling like DIY'ing (which happens a lot).
Fogs to me are just bling-lights anyways. And they can get dinged up pretty bad or worse (and not uncommonly), shatter .

I'll almost certainly remove them. I installed the JDM Fog Delete Kit on my Evo X. I keep the fogs on my Evo IV because:

-Evo IV aftermarket bumpers are hard to find
-The fogs are HUGE, and an iconic part of the car.
