    Kabis- An alternate to DRL's. Replace Fogs

    I've liked the large nature of our fog lamps less and less. I also don't want to bumper cut to fit DRL's. Any thoughts on these, thoughts?:LED DRL Daytime Running Positioning Fog Light Lamp Set for 11 Optima K5 | eBay

    Wow...I think they look great. I may do this as fog lights are pretty much useless in Oklahoma. I recommend it although I have no experience with it. Especially if you live in an area that has no fog.

    Pwice, cutting the bumper support doesnt make that much of a difference and youll know what i mean when you ever get to cut them. The side corners are pretty flimsy that if you get to a certain point while cutting, you can do the rest by just using your hands, bending it back and forth.
