You can get the PIAAs but you are gonna have to find a way to securely mount them without that funny OEM triangular bezel.

Both kinds are available on eBay...... the fake copies, and the real Honda oem ones.

I got my Honda ones off eBay. Just look at the wording close, and you can usually tell which ones are the fake ones (the price is also a clue sometimes too).

Well.. I've made my decision, I got the Catz CL-150 Gold Fog lights. OEM ones are too much $$ for me. I will post some pix once its installed.

Here is where I got mine.
http://www.autospeedy.com/lightbulbs...=24&ID=XE90H3Y

The bulbs are similar to the PIAA Ion Yellows but cost a good amount less. They have the typical purplish/yellow coating that you find on all the Ion Yellow. BTW, they are 70W bulbs so the light output is increased slightly.

Did you buy your lights yet.....?

Here is the link to the Pilots!
http://www.pilotautomotive.com/pilot2ae1.htm
They have the Ion Yellow fog housings. The housings along with the Heliolite upgraded bulbs work well together to get that yellow/gold look. With my setup, the light is yellow from the front and changes to bright white on the sides.

Yeah, I second that! I checked that route first before going with my setup. It took a little bit for me to find something I liked that would fit in my center grill without cutting. The only thing I would change if I could would be to move the fogs out a little. To me, they are just a too close together but oh well. All in all I spent 80 bucks on my fog setup(housings+bulbs) and 35 on my silverstars. I'm very happy with the outcome considering the price of HID's and factory fogs to achive a similar(but better) look.

I wish there was a way to mount the lights in the OEM location without the OEM fog bracket.

Got any pics from the front...? I'd like to see how yellow/gold they look straight on. Otherwise, looks really nice. Yours seem to also change to bright white on the sides like mine do. BTW, how did you get them to fit in the outside most openings in the grill? Mine were slightly to large for that spot so I had to move them in one slot. I also have a license plate so it doesn't look quite as good.

EDIT: I just looked online for them. They look vary similar to mine but they are Catz so I would imagine they are higher quality. I also saw the price.... $200+, damn thats a little pricey. Mine were $40. But you get what you pay for so who knows...

Brex, it seems like theres no metal to mount to there. You just drilled into the bumper cover? Doesn't seem very stable.

Here's one picture from the front. The light seems whitish still, that's why I was thinking about switching the bulbs. I had to cut the outer vertical divider in the front and cut out a ridge on the bottom for my fog light bracket to fit. btw, if you check these lights on ebay, they are relatively cheap.



Brex, I'm not sure if I can switch the bulbs too, for the bulbs stand up vertically inside the housing, but i'm goin to try and see.

Ursus, what kind of light bulbs are you susing for your blinkers? They look nice.
