Amazon Fogs?

Has anyone bought or tried these? I can't exactly tell much info about them or how quality they will be. Info? Thanks!

If you have a coupe then you can get OEM for about the same price.

No I have a sedan and I don't wanna spend 200 on the OEM ones really if these would do me well enough.

Have you looked into getting 01-03 civic fogs? They fit into the bumper by trimming a bit of the plastic grill.
I got mine for $30 on ebay and Nokya bulbs for $17. I don't know how the output compares to OEM, but for the price I think they're a great deal. Install was also pretty easy, but I used my own switch in the armrest above the cup holders.

That one is similar to what I got, basically any of those generic ebay ones will work.

I hadn't considered these. I kinda like the look of the big round ones and coated with yellow rock chip resistant film. Is there a "HOW TO" for how to put the civic ones on? Also which bulbs did you get? Link?

There is plenty of info out there for the civic fogs, I can even help you out.
Here are some guides with good pics. The first one has good pics of the mounting/ cutting on the bumper, and the second shows some output and wiring.

I have a v6 sedan, with the wider plastic grille on the bumper. Would the civic fogs have the same installation?

I think that the 01-03 civic fogs will still work, but I'm not positive.

Nice, if you need any help, there's plenty on the forum, but those guides are really good.
The main thing with the ebay civic fogs are the wiring harnesses, which a lot of people end up not using and instead get the OEM harness. I actually used the one that came with mine; it wasn't perfect (there were some plugs that were extraneous) but after some trial and error I got them to work fine.

In those guides, don't they use the aftermarket harness? Yeah I'm an electrical engineer, I sure hope I can get the harness working or else I'll turn in my stripes haha Famous last words?

Yeah I think in those they used the one that came with it, you shouldn't have any trouble getting it to work. I just know some people prefer to use the OEM harness, but I think it's unnecessary.

Was your harness exactly like the one described in the DIY you linked me to? If so that looks like a breeze to install. He mentions some stuff about changing fuses based on if you have an aftermarket stereo or not and which socket to choose to plug them into. What did you choose along those lines?

Yeah, that looks like the same harness mine came with. i didn't plug mine into an open slot though, I don;t think mine came with a plug like that. Instead I cut the power wire from the switch and ghetto-tapped into the #10 fuse slot, driver side - "Turn Lights" which is a 7.5 amp, which I replaces with a 10 amp.

I just put the stripped power wire into the fuse box, then pushed the fuse back in.

I know it's the easy/cheap/ hack way of doing it, but I think it's still safe with the fuse (it's plugged into the fuse side). I might eventually get some add-a-circuit things for all the places I ghetto-tapped. They look pretty nice-

It's not even the possibility of fuse protection that makes my skin crawl its the possible flakiness of the circuit your creating. Wire cutters, a soldering iron and shrink wrap are your friends

Haha I know, I know. For my latest led project, I soldered the power wires and then put shrink wrap on them, no more twisting and taping.

Finally got a set yesterday, had to order from another supplier, this time selling through amazon. I think ebay has burned me for the last time. <shakes fist> Looks like all is in order so praying a get a chance this weekend to tear apart the bumper. If not it'll be a few weeks.
