    Cool 1g Dsm Fmic

    Would you be able to retain stock fog lights with your FMIC Kit?

    Depends on the fmic kit. What kit were you speaking of when you said "your" kit. Mine no way jose.

    Yes depends on the kit. Just as in the 2g model. My GReddy 24v you could keep the fogs but the piping was horendous, this SBR one I just purchased I dont believe you can. If it means that much, ask the manufacturer they should know.

    The Buschur FMIC kit is too wide to allow use of stock foggies.

    The fog lights do still fit, barely. Yes, Mike Rizzotti still has his on. Without any cutting/dremeling you will only be able to get one bolt on each fog light to clamp down. It is the outermost bolt. The two inside bolts on each fog light would take a bit of effort to get to clamp down. Effort as in either cutting at the bracket, as well as possibly the casing of the light itself. One bolt holding each down works though, just use loc tite and snug it well. The lights angle a tiny bit, but nothing noticable IMO. Take a look...

    Also notice the bumper is resting on the intercooler in the first picture. The intercooler is damn tall! I said screw the AC to make space in there because I really didn't want to cut the bumper cover. Nor did I want to risk overheating. In the center picture notice I trimmed the bumper so that it rests where it normally would, about half an inch lower than the top of the intercooler. This intercooler means F'ing business.

    Punishment Racing FMIC

    The foglights had to be moved as to only utilize only one of the bolts, but they look pretty good if you ask me. ;-)
