Yes, HIRs relfect IR back at the element to increase the output. The mod to the tabs is dead easy.
The stock fog assemblies and design are really good at creating fill lighting close and wide. The bulbs can be upgraded, and would help without putting too much light high up. There are HIRs that will fit them. Something I've noticed since I replaced my driver's side fog housing which included having a stock grille on it again, is that I don't get flashed when I do have my fogs on. I got that occasionally before, so apparently aside from some additional protection, those grilles reduce the upward glare.
My car warms the rear window, mirrors, wipers, my butt, and my heart - because I WILL get there!
