OEM Fog Lights?

What is the OEM fog light shape? My fogs are black housing filling most of the hole with a circle light in the middle like these (sorry too lazy to go take a pic):

Amazon.com: Fog Light Tint Honda Prelude 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 - Yellow Smoke: Automotive

But all i find when looking to buy lights are these:

97-01 Honda Prelude Fog Lights - (Yellow) Pair

I actually kinda like the smaller circle lights (i think, haven't decided) and was wondering if there is anywhere to buy those in the yellow color since the first link is just for tint not actual lights

Re: OEM Fog Lights?

you stated that your foglights are mostly black with a clear round lens. (usdm oem prelude foglights)

the second link didn't work for me. so im guess its the fake jdm fog lights (clear, dark tint, and yellow) like this
JDM YELLOW OEM Fog Light Lamp w/ Switch,Bulb (FULL KIT) - eBay (item 230581774593 end time Apr-04-11 13:14:43 PDT)

but if you want the foglights yellow you can paint it or look for jdm (very hard to find) round fogs. on ebay every now and then they pop up. here is a link for one.

JDM PRELUDE BB6 BB5 YELLOW PROJECTOR FOG LIGHTS OEM - eBay (item 370461749504 end time Apr-29-11 02:15:13 PDT)

Real JDM fogs are 250+ anything under 100 is fake. (look for stanley)

I think i answered your question.

Re: OEM Fog Lights?

There are multiple ways to get your round lights to go yellow.


Compared with


Wow, that takes me back.

Pictured first is my car just after I fitted the JDM round Fog lights. At dealer level in Japan there were three options for fog lights - the large fog lights that most people refer to as JDM fogs (and the ones linked in post #2, very well answered mate!) the yellow round ones (as fitted here) and the clear round ones (fitted as the OEM fogs in USDM, UKDM, EUDM and various other markets).

The easiest way would be to fill your existing projector units with a yellow coloured globe, or a 3000k HID or similar. Alternatively companies such as 97-01 Honda Prelude Lighting Protection Kits offer appliable film to alter the look. The second hardest way is to find a set of yellow fourth gen fogs and swap them in as the projector units are the same. Or you can find the actual JDM yellow round fogs, which are as rare as rocking horse crap.

Re: OEM Fog Lights?

Any idea how the applicable film looks? I prefer to go with a cheap route for starters.

Re: OEM Fog Lights?

Wouldn't filling my housing with a 3000k require something to make it work and it would only look yellow when on

Re: OEM Fog Lights?

If you're careful and clever the film wouldn't look too bad. I see no reason why it wouldn't work, but then again have no experience with it. Yes, 3000k HIDs will only look yellow when on, though if you buy a plug and play system (complete with ballasts, etc) it's easy. There's a write up on here somewhere that goes through the conversion of fog lights to HID.

Re: OEM Fog Lights?

Re: OEM Fog Lights?

Only problem I have is they warn you that it hinders the heat dissipation and the lights should be off when idle or in stop and go. So are there any films that won't hurt my lights or do I not need to worry about this at all?

And i'm also wondering if theres a certain brand I should go with...Lamin X makes films to install but they dont have any precuts. I could buy a 6"x12" sheed for $13 compared to precut headlightarmor for $18. Extra $5 might be worth the perfect sizing but i'm not really sure as this is the first time i've ever installed something like this.

Probably going to order this weekend so any suggestions on brand and such is much appreciated.
