Haha Ah yes Joe, I am familiar with the GS F-Sport with Fogs. I'm not sure if I'd want to put the OEM fog lights on though...maybe I want to try something a little different... hehehe but then, i might fail at that and have to go with you fix lol

I think Lexus should seriously offer these as an option in the US. The car could come without them, but if the buyer wants to add fogs, he / she could pay for them extra.

My fogs on my IS are dirt traps...unless you're going Joe Z style or if Lexus makes some HID fogs, I could do without...

NO, because most US drivers don't know when to properly use them.

No - fog lights are last decade/90s tech and look and rarely needed by most owners

Besides, why have fogs when you have the best looking DRLs on the market?

Fogs are overrated...most people don't know how to use them and if HID's are added most people put 6k which is basically pointless for driving in fog! LoL

foglights are 99% of the time for cosmetic purposes. talking about functionality is like having a big wing for downforce

VOTE YES FOR 2014 LEXUS IS FOGLAMPS!

1) Safety
2) Aesthetics especially with LED Foglamps
3) Reduces the collection of bugs & debris in the concave plastic black plugs
4) It makes the car look aggressive.
5) Just because BMW and Mercedes is doing it doesn't mean Lexus should. If Lexus wants to be like BMW and Mercedes, bring out the GS F, LS F and beef up the performance factors to really compete with its German rivals.

Agreed partially.... Fog Lights do help in Foggy weather conditions

Also, blank covers are not too appealing these days!!!

I voted yes for the fog light as I believe USA and Canada share similar packages. It simply doesn't make sense to have fog lights on the LS F-Sport while the GS and the IS don't.
