In case any of you are on the fence about ordering a cheap set of eBay lights, let this help make your decision.





They leaked almost immediately. I attempted to reseal one of them with no luck. It's hard to see in the second picture, but the "chrome" on the reflector bowl is ruined.

These lights are less that 3 months old.

Never again.

On a related note, anyone got some genuine OEM fogs they want to sell?

$77 for the kit that comes with the wiring harness and the switch that doesn't fit the factory hole.

My truck came prewired for fogs, and I wanted a clean oem install, so I bought an oem switch and an oem relay separately. Didn't even use the crap from the kit.

I'm pretty disgusted with the turnout for the money I spent on this.

That's rough, I thought the eBay ones were a good deal. That's why I haven't even bothered trying to sell my oem fog lights I replaced when I bought my all pro bumper. Shoot me a pm if you're in the market for am oem set.

You might try some Hella micro DE lights. I mounted a pair in my wife's Accord and they work good. I did the HID mod on them and the cutoff line is sharp. Just stick with the 35 watts and you will be happy.
