well, here is my search from procarparts.com, since my car is 2k2 civic coupe, and they stated 2002 MODELS MAY REQUIRE MINOR MODIFICATION -ON/OFF SWITCH DESIGNED FOR 2001 ONLY....WTF. Anyone installed fog light from procarpart on 2k2 civic??????????

It stated that they use Philips H11 (if burn, are those easily to get), so anyone know what kind of bulb use on OEM fog light.

thanks

Procarparts.com: OEM like $129.99
Honda OEM: $223


Procarparts.com:

TuffVietta should not be trusted
i have the same exact ones from procarparts.com and i heard that the bulbs are really hard to get. i think they are made in germany and are not sold in the us. also, i dont think they produce the h-11 bulbs in hyperwhite so my foglights dont match the hyperwhite bulbs i put in my headlights.

OEM foglights use H11 bulbs also.
Tornactive.com sells the OEM look alikes for around $150 try emailing them if you are interested.
Don't buy from Procarparts, I did and was lucky, but most people are not so lucky dealing with them.

It took about 4 hours to do the install. 2 of those hours were me just looking at the bumper scared to start cutting without a template, which for some reason wasn't in the box. I finally traced some lines (about 20 different times) with a pencil, got my box knife and started cutting. Always start by leaving a generous amount of material, then trim to fit as necessary. By the way, I made a rough template of the pattern that needs to be cut if anyone needs one. The wiring was fairly easy. I did have to make an extension on one of the wires that came with the kit, but that was because of my choice of routes. The kit itself looks just as good as the OEM kit. Lights, switch (you can see the switch in my console pic on this site) and wiring are all top quality. I definitely recommend doing it yourself. You can always PM or email me if you decide to get the kit and do it yourself. I'll be glad to help out.
