What is a good AF fog light?

Got some fog lights in today that were supposed to fit..they don't. There is no way to mount them, the bracket was completely different. Anyone know of a good aftermarket foglight that fits and is easily mountable using the existing holes? I would love to go with OEM and just snap them in and have the factory switch and all, but I don't want to pay $200 for the whole set, and then another $100 for the dealer to just turn them on.

Thanks.

Re: What is a good AF fog light?

I got some on ebay...they had a smoked backing and they were oem copies. They came with wiring and switches...but I didnt use them. Let me find the thread for you. Also....you dont have to pay $200 for the oem kit. You can get the oem lamps on ebay for like $45 for both, then all you need is the interior stalk...which is about $32-$35 new. After that you need a 20 amp fuse and a $13 relay. there is a thread in the how to forum.

Re: What is a good AF fog light?

try a few dealers for the programming. one told me 80$ another 40$. you will appreciate having the factory set up and no ugly switches in the dash.

Re: What is a good AF fog light?

Thanks for the replies. Now that I know I can get the fuse and relay separate, that changes things. But there are only a few dealers in the area, and when I called, one told me $96 to do it, another $100, and another $110. I asked them how they can justify that with a 2 min job. They gave me the run around about tools and what not. Told them the only tool is the Starscan which plugs in. They wouldn't give.

Re: What is a good AF fog light?

Ahh yup, the K2's..I was going to get those too. Waiting to hear back from the first guy I bought them from to see if he will return them.

And just to clarify, those do just screw in to the existing mounts, correct? They look like the do.

I mounted my switch in the little cubby hole to the left of the steering column. It's a lighted switch, but you don't really notice it. The fogs do NOT turn off with high beam, but I like it that way. the only problem is that PA inspection laws require that if the lights are installed, they MUST work properly (including turning off when high beams come on) so when I get it inspected I have to remove them for the day.... no big deal, I like that they are on all the time and I can have them on with just my parking lights.
