HID lights in a car that is not designed for HID lights will not look as good as one that does due to the projector that focuses the beam~ they will help compared to stock but not like a car that as a projector lens.

You could try to clean/replace the headlights (or get some clear cobra headlights) and run some brighter bulbs like silverstars and adjust them right~ see if that helps. If they are pointed down to much that can mess up your ability to see.

Fogs are pretty cheap for your car, check americanmuscle.com they wont help much driving but they look good. Go with OEM fogs only please, cheap ones look BAD OEM is the only way to go (or oem style that fit like oem)

When I picked up my car there were round yellow fogs on it and the first thing I did was find someone getting rid of a set and picked them up. I can deal with the lens clouding for now more so than anything other than stock lighting on these cars.

If you go with HIDs which can look nice, get a legitamite color and not purple, pink, or anything blue-er than what you might see on the new BMW or Audi.
