Fog questions...

So i'm pretty poor and i want to put fog lights on my 5th gen...i cant afford jdm fogs, nor the usdm ones. so i have a few questions...

1.) is there an aftermarket fog light for the 5g ludes that fits like oem? i know they make them for civics and rsx's and whatnot

2.) has anyone ever used aftermarket ones that arent oem fitment? and with what results?

3.) can you buy just the plastic insert in the fog light spot? If you can maybe ill buy an extra set and try to mod something up rather than possibly ruin mine.

4.) is any other car's fog light size compatible with the 5g lude?

5.) does anyone happen to know the measurements of an oem fog light?


6.) or am i just an idiot and dont deserve fogs unless i can afford to pay $200-$400 dollars for them?


any input is appreciated! THANKS!

Re: Fog questions...

1.) No, I spose those who make them decided there wasn't a big enough market for them.

2.) Exactly what do you mean, like a generic rectangle or round light? In which case then yes. Refer 1badbb6's MR page.

3.) Yes. It's just a spare part, so run down the local junk yard and pick a couple up.

4.) No.

5.) It's the same measrements as that blank, so pull that out and measure it.


6.) No, not an idiot. There have been plenty of nice Preludes with non-oem fogs on the front, I just cbf looking for a decent pic atm.

Re: Fog questions...

i got mine from autozone for 40 bucks, not too bad. light output isnt the best but they are the best ones i have seen that arent honda brand. i will sell them to you for 20 plus shipping, as i am ordering the jdm's in about a week. the first pic is the closest up one i could find, and the second is an older pic but the only one i could find with them on cuz i am at work right now.
