Anyone have pics of ebay foglights?

I'm looking at Ebay for foglights and most of them seem to be in the $60 range or so, so I'm really interested in how it really looks, the output and how yellow it looks. "I'm leaning towards yellow foggies". Does anyone have a pair of the ebay foglights with pictures, I really want to see how they look.

Make sure you get v.2 fogs, don't wanna be meltin housings.Quality is pretty good light output the same. Also sidenote they're generally refered to as jdm fogs if not legit they're replica jdm fogs

Re: Anyone have pics of ebay foglights?

legit jdm fogs have glass lenses. have a harness that integrates perfectly with the car. housing uses h3c bulbs (easily converted to standard h3) and the switch will replace one of the three in the cubbie.

v.2 fogs have a polycarbonate lens, harness has its own wiring harness witch supersedes the factory pre-run, you can use the factory pre-run if you add some adapters that are spade connector to bullet connector.the exterior harness also has this problem, again use an adapter these kits come with their own switch cubbie that fits all of the stock switch plus the fog switch

v.1 fogs have housings made entirely out of low temp plastic.(if you use HIDS or any halogen bulb over 35wt these WILL melt). the interior harness is a near exact copy of the jdm harness, switch style and wiring connectors. the exterior harness has some differences, the bulb connectors use bullet connectors instead of the standard spade, to run a standard h3 or h3c bulb this must be change, its easily fixed with some wire and connectors though.


edit: I should make a jdm fog faq one of these days

man I love them, only issue when you click for your hi beams the fogs don't cut out like the USDM Factory ones do but for the money I can live with that.

Plus having the factory style switch is great, I just tucked my dimmer switch behind the cover (set it to what I normally set the brightness to) No problem...

Just don't go changing the bulbs to some crazy a$$ hi wattage bulbs you don't need them plus it will melt the housing. Just use the normal H3 bulbs. (30 watts???)

I think the light output is great it realy helps me see better. The wiring is as Ludezilla says, it works with some modifications to the connectors. I love mine, best $60 exterior mod ive bought so far.

Re: Anyone have pics of ebay foglights?

Don't see why you couldn't run an led h3 bulb. I personally wouldn't, As I see no great benefit
The v.2 housings are metal with a polycarbonate lens and are rated for 55watts. these housings can safely operate HIDS, with no risk to melting, they are just as durable temp wise as legit jdm fogs are.

Re: Anyone have pics of ebay foglights?

Just thought that I would chime in and agree that the v.2 fogs is one of the best investments I've made on my car. Only issue, the wiring harness was not all that well thought out. It works, but modifications need to be made for it to be better. No big deal at all though. Oh and the bulbs that come in them are absolute garbage! other than that no complaints...
