driving lights question

are there any kits etc that I can remove my fog lights that are in the lower part of the front bumper and replace them with driving lights? In short, the stock halogen headlights stink and i dont want to spend as much money as it would be to convert to xenon etc.

thanks

On my car, they are the daytime driving lights and are the PSX24W halogen. I changed them to the PSX24W canbus LED's and run great. Just plug and play and were 'bout $50 total.

Quite brighter. I got the 6k and will never go back.

But I must mention I had to use the BimmerCode App to program it. If you don't have it, it's about $30 for the app and less than $30 for the OBD2 WiFi unit. Then you can go LED for everything.

I should mentin before you spend a penny on this. My lights are brighter and go further than stock. And from what I read is consider driving lights, but they don't have a massive distance when used.

I have a Dodge Ram and their driving lights can actually replace the headlights if they fail, if needed. (My light switch went out and I needed to to this one night) But not the Mini.

If this is what your looking for, consider additional lights instead. I went LED on every light on the front and very happy with them.
