I have HID fogs installed and I just decided to adjust/aim them up.

Independent fogs:


Fog on the left is stock, right is adjusted.


That picture was taken with the car about 5 feet from the garage. I was very surprised at how high they are now. No more having them point 10 feet in front of the car :)

And actually its the stock one. Probably just the angle that I took the picture from. It was a quick point and shoot shot lol

You might want to be careful re-aiming your fogs up. Do you have HID's as well in your headlamps? If so, you might be getting a lot of oncoming drivers pissed at you for being so bright! It could be dangerous for them if they have a really bright light source coming at them, especially on a rainy night. The intent for fogs IS to light only a small amount in front of the car. They aren't the primary source for driving.

Yeah, I have the stock HID's for lows. I use my fogs like high beams, when traffic comes I turn them off. I dont drive with them on all the time either.

How I did it was by unscrewing this screw:


After you do that you can move the foglight up and forward which adjust where the light is pointing.
