Adding foglights blocks airflow

Want to put 03 TL foglights, but wondering if it would decrease airflow and decrease performance? The sedans don't have the same air hole as the coupes so would it hurt performance much? Or am I going to be slow as a sedan?

No, I don't believe it'll decrease your performance. There's still plenty of area for the air to get in.

The real question is, can you be as fast as a sedan? (mine that is )

im might reduce the slight ram air effect that having the filter exposed gave you, but it shouldnt be nothing noticeable.

with E36 BMW M3s tho the difference of removing foglights and brake cooling was very noticable, thats why they made brake ducts for em. maybe you could try that, if yout that concerned.

--Sorry to steer off-topic--
Wow, snikwad is banned?! That dude had over 5,000 posts and an 11+ post per day average.

I've never seen a certifiable post whore get banned before--only dumb n0obs that upset everyone.

I thought for sure snik was gonna overtake Plum's seemingly insurmountable post count. Guess not.

Sorry to interrupt. I just had to register my amazement.
