    Fog season is around the corner here in Central California I'm looking forward to installing fog lights on my Prius C 1, does anybody recommend any specific brand or lighting? I would appreciate any recommendations or suggestions and pictures if possible

    The best type of foglight has a good cutoff that keeps the light low to prevent the light from reflecting off the fog back into your eyes. Typical foglights have very poor, or non existent cutoffs.

    You want projector foglights like these:

    Then for higher contrast, use warm color temperature bulbs like 2500K for better visibility and less glare.

    Here's a picture of my Camry with projector foglights and 2500K Nokya halogen bulbs against my garage door. You can see there's a good cutoff.

    Keep in mind that unless you're car came with foglights, you're going to have to get a kit with the correct shrouds with foglight openings to replace the blanks that are on your vehicle. The kit will also provide a relay, dashboard switch, and a wiring harness.

    The foglights linked to above are just the foglights, nothing else is included.
