2013 Civic fog lamp kits

The factory kits are 299-400+ and I'm not convinced that they are the best choice anyway.

I would like to go with a quality aftermarket kit with clear lenses and 3000 degree bulbs. Hopefully, the kit will not be too complicated to install.

I have seen many aftermarket choices and am hoping that someone has gone there before and can provide some advise as to where best to buy these and the model that they have used.

I have also heard that the stock wiring harness already has plugs for easy installation of factory kits - is this true? If so, do the fog lights have their own relay or do they operate off the headlight relay?

Thanks for your advice.
Greg

They are not pre-wired, other than a single wire running from the inside to the outside and the multifunction switch harness is pre wired.. The factory kit has relays and harnesses that must be installed, but it is pretty dang easy, plug and play for the most part.

If you want to check out the instructions for a factory kit, go to http://estore.honda.com/
Pick accessories, then look on the right side column for
"If you looking for installation or DIY instructions

Re: 2013 Civic fog lamp kits

Hey ezone,

You seem pretty knowledgeable,

I have a 2013 Civic EX, no leather or fog lights. I am wondering if you know will switching out the piece in the middle of the dashboard(believe its the daylight sensor), and changing the turn signal lever to the one that includes Auto for the headlight setting will give my car automatic headlights?

Any info or direction would be appreciated.
Thanks.

I do not have any answer to that question!
