    Someone had posted a fog light design a few weeks ago but I think they looked more like DRL's , a real fog light should be functional not just ornamental , and not something that is annoying to oncoming traffic , if youre designing a new light please consider this . Thanks

    Thanks it looks very good , is it possible to direct the light down and to the sides as well ? how much does this design impact the air flow through these openings , ie do you have a shot in the daytime close up ??

    So do I, after I saw my Stinger this morning in the rearview mirror.

    Two small LED stripes.....did not impress me much.

    I previously said exactly what @!westcoatGT said above, fog lights should have a practical value.
    But this is now taken up by the LED lighting system, and fog lights per se are becoming out of fashion so to speak.

    If these light are combined with the DRLs, it would save a witch and make the car distinctive.

    I like. :)

    It all comes down to individual taste, and that's what makes the world go round. Your points are well taken, and I know the lights you are talking about. I was thinking of putting them on my truck. Maybe I still well. But objectively, the Stinger needs a bit more pizzazz for the front end. Think of the Audi "wave", or the Acura "jewelry", the Cadillac vertical "stripes" (ugly) and so on.
    Anyway, there is no right or wrong (just beautiful & ugly, hi hi hi)

    Took me a minute to think about the Audi DRLs , the wave , yes you're right ,very cool and very unique .................I guess thats kind of my issue with strip lights , I would like something unique to the Stinger that plays off of a proprietary design element .....................

    a stylized "S" or "Arrowhead" - but where would you put it? @KiaStinger came up with the in-channel design - but I visualized it as a stick-on LED strip. Nah, not the right solution. RPM above now has an engineered solution, true, more expensive, but appropriate.
    I am now waiting for activated rear side reflectors (the ones you wanted to cover with vinyl) LOL :p

    I did cover them , but in the end I felt that they were a real design attribute that separated the Stinger from Audi , Masseratti and that Dodge thing ,and have now grown quite fond of them ! .............now you be careful with all these lighting mods or I'll be re naming your car " Saturday Night Fever ".............................bawaaaaaaaaa:coffee::coffee::coffee::coffee::coffee::coffee::coffee:
