My OEM Foglight Install

Well so far they are only half done

Yesterday (10-22-03) I got to work on them and only got in the 3 wire harnessís installed and plugged up. Man it took me over 4 hours to do just that . Acutally 5 hours total cause the first hour I was trying to find a socket set that had the right sizes.

Now all I have to do is cut out the sections in the front bumper and mount the foglight housings into the holes. Hopefully I wonít short out anything when I test them .

The interior wire harness was the hardest part. I also took off the front bumper to make it easier to install the front harness . Still have it off right now and man does it look weird .

Will have it done by tomorrow. I will post pics to show how they came out .

Yes I did finish them

It took me a few more hours today to cut out the sections and mount them in. Putting back the front bumper and interior parts is much harder than taking them off .

I do need to get the aimed along with the headlights but I will have that done later.

Pics:

My car without a front bumper (probably the only time I will ever do this ):


Finished with them off:


With them on:


Another angle (almost blinding ):


They look really good and are very bright . It was a hard DIY but it was worth it . I am so proud of myself .

Click on Honda, then click on Accord and then your model year. The 98-00 coupe set costs 154.50 on sale right now. Thatís what I paid for mine .

And I did some night driving over the past view days. Man these things light up the road . Worth every penny IMO

Yes they do turn off when the high beams are on. There is a mod to make them stay on with the parking lights on and I think it also works for the high beams to keep them on.

Have driven around with them for a week now. They are like short distance high beams .

I'm starting to want these Does anyone hear have the OEM fogs for the '01-'02 sedan? If so, do you have any pics? I honestly haven't seen an '01-'02 sedan with the factory foglights.

I just thought about it and realized that these probably wouldn't be good for my car's perfermance Yea they look good, but the left side fog light will block the direct air path to my V2.

nice work! I've thought about doing this too, but was wondering how much it'd help. I had one guy say it was purely for looks, but if you think it helps visibility that makes it much more tempting...

Trust me it does improve it. The beam is so wide you can see on the sides of your car much easier with them. They are not merely for looks . Though they do look great

They are a bit off and my headlights are even worse. I will take pics of the beam pattern when I get everything aimed to the correct level .

I have factory fogs on my '02 sedan. I can tell you right now that it's not purely for looks unlike some of the factory fogs from other company... ie Pontiac which I don't think their fogs do jack but I see almost all Pontiacs on the road with them. Anyways, the OEM fog beam is low and very wide. It fills in the area directly behind the low beams. It can easily light up a 6 lane highway from shoulder to sholder. I think it helps most when ur on a dark 2 lane interstate and dark residential roads. With the fogs on, it'll light up the sidewalk better so you can see better whether someone is crossing the intersection before you turn. IMO, it greatly helps my visibility. I can post pics if anyone want to see them. They've become my driving lights.

Man, these fog lights are sounding better and better.

Force21, if you have pics of the fogs, I'd love to see 'em, please

these fogs do sound great, but with all that light it would be even better on these dark ass roads if we could use them with the high beams. it would be like the MIB memory eraser.

Here are some quick pics. The 5th might be too dark... but I try to take a pic of how wide the beam is. I took that at a stop sign from the inside driver seat.

Like I said before... the fogs fills in the area behind the low beams. Very wide! Definately improves visibility IMHO.

Yup

Mine aim a bit more to where the headlights are aimed since they are screwed up . I need to call up my dealership and see how much they charge for aiming.

And for the last time, they do help visibility! .

Those pics definitely show how good they are - that's it...I'm getting them!!

Are they easy to aim like the regular headlights?

Yeah they're easy to aim... but you kneed to get down on your hands and knees. Aiming for the 98-00 factory fogs are easier. the aiming screw is directly head on next to the foglight. But for 01-02 it's slightly more harder. There's a hole on the bottom of the bumper directly under the foglights. The hole leads to the aiming screw. You have to get a long enough philips screwdriver and reach into the hole... but the aiming screw will be directly over the hole. Just turn left or right to raise or lower the beam.

Yup they're H11. Finding H11 online is hard enough... but yellow ones are even harder. I do remember this one sight that supposely sell yellow H11 bulbs but I don't remember the link for it. Here's a quote from a Lexus forum:

"Guys, the yellow Lexus foglights use clear bulbs.

The older ES300s that use projector headlights and fogs have yellow lenses. 1998+ GS400/430/GS300 (w/HID option) have a removable transparent yellow sleeve mounted onto the reflector.

If you're willing to disassemble your fogs,you could mount a yellow bulb sleeve to them. SUV Lights sells them for H4 appplications,but they were almost a perfect fit for my factory 9006-equipped foglights. Even with a HID capsule they shine yellow."

The best option I think would be to tint the lense yellow or wait until yellow H11 bulbs become widely available.

i would'nt get yellow fogs tho, cause then you'll probably hurt other drivers eyes, sibne msot of us rarely drive in fog you really dont need a yellow light.
keep em clear, then they'll be auxillary driving lights not fog lights.
