I have a set of blazer brand fog projectors on my winter beater, brighter than stock with a 25w halogen and with hid way better than stock headlights.

The Fiero has the Cadillac xlr's bi-xenon as headlights, and blazer brand fog projectors as parking / drl and signal lights.

What kind of problems would you see using these as headlights? One set for highs, one for lows, upgraded with some high output H3's. Is it the pattern or throw distance?

the pattern through would be different. look at the way fog lights projects as compared to regular headlights. the angles and area it covers is different.

Worth a shot. Glass lenses too. That's why I'd be almost tempted to try these as headlights with a higher power H3 in them. If you do get them, post some beamshots, that's what will really determine what they can be used for.

Here's a thread worth reviving.

Boy it is tempting to use a fixture like this for headlamps for several reasons.
The unit has a small diameter and you could get your doors super low with these.
I bet I could mount these three across.
Of course, they are also inexpensive.

Couple problems,

They are e-code certified forward fog lamps and not DOT.
The DOT requires all lighting to be clearly marked on the front.
All states (and most likely smaller jurisdictions as well) somewhere in their vehicle code have verbiage like " must conform to DOT 108".
These are illegal to use in the United States.
I think Canada would be OK. (fog lamps only!)
Most reasonable cops are not going to write you if you are not offensive.
You know, blinding people, loud exhaust, brandishing your CC,.......
Problem is not all cops are reasonable.
Run into one who understands, cares, and knows the statute, you are screwed.
Personally, I am confident that I could run these as fog lights without issue.
But I am older, calm, and get waxed by girls at the track.

The e-code certification is 13 which means Luxumberg (not sure if that is important).
These may be properly designed fog lights.
If so they will make crappy headlights.
Certainly will not work as a high beam at all.

They would be great for custom show car installations.
Provided you never had to use them at night.
The cool thing about a Fiero pop-up bucket is:
unplug light, 6 bolts later they are out.
Not true with the others
