i'm also want to know because this days, the difference between fog and spot light are blurred.... no pun intended

but one thing for sure, do not use more than 4000k color bulb on your fog/spot lamp... higher than that will proved useless in foggy/rainy conditions

fog lights = spray light to side n very short distance. more for ppl to be able to see u from far than for u to see anything further than 10m

spot lights = beam either has pencil type beam or cone type beam.

I'm using hella FF50s (driving light variant) n its great on hiways. its sort of hi beam which shoots a narrow cone of light straight out n glares so u can see people or things on the side of road. i put a glare shield on mine so it now has less glare.

HID projector for spotlight (auxilary driving lights) or halogen yellowish foglights.

Depends on your application. Spotlight provides extra illumination far up. If you are doing spirited/high speed driving at night, this is good as it increases your range of vision giving you more time to react and more comfortable. Projector are best for this as you can aim the beam far without causing excessive glare to oncoming people. And HID is best with this. But remember to get projectors meant for HID.

If you always drive in bad weather (rain, fog, etc), get halogen foglamps. projector or reflector doesn't matter but if you plan to get projector, get projectors meant for halogen. Fog lamps illuminate the road immediately in front and side of you giving you clear short range vision. But sacrifice far range. But HIDs and white lights are not suitable for fog lamps. Get yellowish ones.

For me, I'd save up and get both. Projector saves space. So even you have both, it just uses up the same amount of space or less as old style foglamps.

if want best of both worlds...Bosch micro DE oso not bad...or even better get waja cps projectors. they are bright! and if police stops u...can say bang...ni dari waja cps la. dont forget....if u get projectors...need to diy install. not an ez job. mine took about a year to finish retrofitting cos waiting for all the various parts to arrive. now i rarely turn on my hellas. the projectors more than enuff light. frog jumping across the road at 100m oso can see the shadow.
