God damn people... how many times do we have to go over this...
Unless they've chenged something since I last looked this is how the lighting setup works.
1. On the Fairmont Ghia, and other non XR BAs with the option, the rectangular lights in the lower bumper are parking lights. The ones in the headlights aren't there, there isn't even a hole in the reflector for the parking light to go through. Instead the light has been mounted down low. This menas you have a 5W bulb down low which looks pretty but doesn't annoy anyone.
2. On the XR models, and GT of course there are round driving/fog lights. These can probably be switched on with the lights, but also have a switch to turn them off when you don't need it. (SS drivers seem to miss this point on their car!) These lights contain 55W high beam bulbs (i'm pretty sure they use normal ones) and also contain a deflector that covers the top half sphere of the bulb so as not to get other drivers in the face and piss them off too much.
That should explain it all...

There's nothin' like 290Kw of Sledge Hammer wrapped in a plush leather glove! :evl:
Even a 285Kw Y2 Senator Signature can't take it down... and they've had half a year to study it!
