I think I'm just going to go with a pair of SE-R fogs. Anyone know where I can get them other than a junkyard w/o ripping my ass?

Only one suggestion? geez.....I know people have more info. than this. Maybe an additional question will help. What is the biggest difference b/t the hyperwhites, plasma, nuclear eye melting whites, etc. Does this only refer to brightness?

Just to let you know,
No B14 ever left the dealer with fog lights. Those lights in the holes on the fender of certain 97,98 200SX and Sentras are not fog lights, nor are they driving lights. They are simply 'accessory' lights. Meaning they light up, and thats about it. If your car came with the holes for these lights, get 'real' fog or driving lights. I'd say, get both. Put fogs in the holes, and driving lights where the intercooler would go. This is the best combo. Yes it may look silly, or overdone, but rally cars do not have 4 6 inch driving lights on their hoods for nothing.

Cripes, if you care more for what you'll be able to see than what others will see, just get a set of Hella or Osram bulbs for under $10. Just don't get more than 55 watts as you'll be blinding the rest of us and cooking your lens and housing, if they're plastic.

Well put, and people could also go with a combination fog/driving lights. BTW, real rally lights are about 9 inches accross.:eek:

Yeah, there are some fog/driving combo setups in real nice compact housings out now. My 88 S12 came from the dealer with the big old-school Bosch lights:

They're more driving lights that fog lights, they light the pavement in front of you nicely but don't have the piercing beams that good fogs do. On the plus side, I can run them all the time if I want without disturbing other drivers. They were originally wired to only work with the headlights on, but I rewired them right after I got the car so I can turn them on whenever I want.
But I've thought of installing some of those new fog/driving combo lights that are about the same size.

Well I just bought a set of the biggest fogs I can find to fit the spaces in a R33 bumper--they were actually like trucks fog lights...

Anyways how can I replace the bulbs to match my hyperwhites on my heads and corners... I want them to have that same blue tint UKNOW....

Will fog lights from a 99 sentra fit a 98 sentra?

Hmm,
I imagine they should since the opening is the same size. However if the lights are cut to shaoe for that hole then the answer is no. Because the shape is different. Ask scorchn200SX since he makes a carbon fibre mold ot fill the hole and can tell you the sizes of the 98 and 99 holse.
