Harness looks JDM. OR at least not V.2 ebay.

I love my fogs, definitely in my top 5 of fav mods so far. Fills out the light pattern and does their job in the fog beautifully. Install pics when you get em in.

You can see mine in the thread I just started in the auto showoff section if you want. sexy shizz indeed.

Who cares!!! I don't understand why everyone is always so obsessed with JDM this and JDM that! If you cant tell by a close up picture like that if they are JDM or eBay then who is ever gonna tell once they are installed on the car?? As long as they are good quality and work well and function properly and look awesome.......who really cares if they are JDM?? The only one who would ever know is the owner of the car. there is some aftermarket stuff out there that is of higher quality than JDM OEM.

Nice fog lights bro, whatever kind they are. make sure you get pictures posted after you install them, good luck

Re: Nice little add on

I did say as long as they are good quality. I do agree there is a LOT of CRAP out there too. But on the other side of the spectrum there is a lot of high quality aftermarket companies out there that spend a lot of time and money researching and developing quality parts that may surpass the quality of JDM parts. I have yellow fogs on my 5th gen that I got off the internet and I Love them! I have never had any problems with them, the wire harness was just plug and play like the OEM one would be, and they even came with the switch and new switch bezel so it looks totally stock. I guess you just have to do a little research before you buy, but there is good s*it out there that is not JDM.

Re: Nice little add on

Yeah, you might not be able to easily tell between ebay and authentic but some people take pride in having the authentic stuff
Also, like said before, it has to do with the quality.

But, OP, nice buy there , I just bought some authentic ones off PO, can't wait to get 'em.

Who are u first of all. Second, alot of JDM products last longer/work better then most good quality ebay products. And they will look better and be worth more if it was to be turned around and sold.

thats because the directions clearly state that you must not install any bulb thats stronger than 35 watt, so you should blame yourself instead of the product. Ive had my ebay jdm foggies for more than a year now and never gave me problems..

To the op, Good luck with the product. I agree with lazer, its one of my top five mods ive done so far so hope you like it!

Re: Nice little add on

They are ebay, I just can't see spending $499 on fog lights that someone just cut the wires and no switch, no relay. Nothing and say its JDM. I like having a clean look. I'm not a huge JDM fan I still run OBD II, with a H22A4. No JDM here. I just like the look of these fogs rather than the round USDM ones.

Hey can you do a DIY on this? I don't think anyone has posted one up. I wanna get fogs too but I have no idea on how to wire anything up.

Re: Nice little add on

Some people do take pride in having jdm products which i respect cuz some things are rare and spend bucks on them when others cant really afford them and buy knockoffs but still look good which is still ok....

Well it doesnt matter at the end becuz as long as ur satisfied w/ whatever
u bought thats all it matters...its ur car u do what u want...

Nice lights though...luckily u could find urs anywhere...
Where for my model u cant find any fogs unless they are used...!

Unless someone knows where to get some knockoffs...but new...

Well for starters how the hell do you know what wattage bulb I put in my fog light?!?! Secondly the fog lights I received did not come with instructions because it's ebay.

Here is a pic of the box, clearly saying it can take a 55 watt bulb.


And here a picture of the exact bulbs that I bought 55 watts (lower left hand side)


So I guess it wasn't my fault

I've gotten no-name fog lights for my other Honda's and had no problems. I'm just saying it's very "hit or miss" when it comes to crappy no-name ebay products, and for the Prelude I got burnt on the crappy ebay fogs and won't make the same mistake twice. If you have good luck with yours then that's cool, I'm just saying that IMO I wouldn't buy them. Spend the money and get something that will last guaranteed instead of taking a gamble.

Sorry if I sounded negative in my earlier post Rob, I just got screwed on the ones I bought and I hope you get no issues with yours. Good luck man.

Re: Nice little add on

I'm not bagging on JDM guys/gals. I just don't like the hatchet job somebody does to rip the JDM stuff out of their rides and sell. I just think for that kind of money they should take their time and uninstall it right and have it neat the whole package. Thats all

I could tell 1/2 a second into this thread that those fogs are fake. Don't judge the meaning only on one post. Many hardcore enthusiasts are laughing at how poorly these look.

^ Real or Fake?

Anyways. It doesnt matter. IMO the newest version of ebay fogs are of oem quality and this isn't about jdm or not.


In for more pics Rob, You gonna send me some for a sig?

Re: Nice little add on

im sorry but i really really HATE these replica fogs, its bullsh!t. i have got the Authentic JDM fogs, and it really pisses me off when kids go around telling people they have JDM fogs and never say they are replicas. it kind of discredits the few of us who have cared about our cars enough to lay down the extra cash for the real thing.

X2

To have JDM means to have actual STANLEY fogs.

anything other than that is inferior. It will always be like that.

that's all there is to it.

Re: Nice little add on

What it comes down to is you always get what you pay for when buying car parts. As we've seen previously the replica fog lights have had some quality issues. I hope the manufacturer has fixed the problem and the newer ones are better products. However they haven't been on the market very long, and I've noticed that many of the replica products sold on ebay don't stand up to the weather conditions that mother nature dishes out over here. A mate of mine has altezza lights on his car, and replaces them every year because the sun has discoloured the plastic and they no longer seal properly. He doesn't really care because they look good for a time and he knows he can get a new set for less than it costs for him to fix the set he has. I hope for Rob's (and everyone else who has purchased these) that they are of better quality than the altezza stlye lights sold here.

I'm the first to admit, genuine JDM parts are way too expensive. However This maintains their exclusivity, and it's not uncommon for somebody to buy a full foglight kit for AU$400 brand new, and 3 years later sell it for AU$400. I seriously doubt the replicas will have very much in the way of resale value, the fact that new ones can be obtained so cheaply almost assures that. That's kinda the reason that 12 month old civics are so cheap when compared with a new one.

For those who like the look, the imitation fog lights do the trick. At best, the fog lights are a visual addition anyway because even the genuine ones don't provide a huge amount of light. (I know this because I own a set.)
