Nice. The fogs were the same way with me, I installed them as much as I could but had to wait for the right switch to come since the kit didn't come with one and Honda gave me the wrong one, had to order one from online.

well the whole installation was kinda tricky...taking the front apart pretty much!
but the wiring harness it came with was a lil wack! my friend had to add wire to reach the fuse box under the steering wheel, then the fuse was blown in the wiring harness, and then the connector to the switch broke!
so we stripped and connected the wires, got a fuse and switch from autozone for $5 and there u go...they work independent from the lights, it was the easiest way to wire them up. the switch kinda blends in with the interior too, so its coo
ill post a pick later

Yeah, the OEM's seem to have something that the eBay one's don't. Still, that ride definitely looks good with those lights installed...

aznprid214 has a spectacular aura aboutaznprid214 has a spectacular aura about
i bought ebay fogs and install was good but the lil plastic insertions, like the relay and switch was cheap. the plastic melted. i just bypassed the relay and bought my own switch. i just ran the power straight to my radio so that when ever i turn my keys over it will have power and when i turn it off it will shut off. this way i can drive without having to have my head lights on with the fogs. i like just driving with fogs and daytime lights. looks good that way so just watch out for the plastic stuff they send you.

^^^ I have the same switch

I had to redo most of my ebay harness.

I ran a cable from the battery
to the fuse
then to the switch
then to the lights.

I have two of the same switches in the same spot. One isn't connected to anything yet, so it'll either be fogs or a hardwired radar detector, and the other one is for the extra outlets I put in for my laptop, etc. Does anyone know how many amps for the fog light circuit, if wired without the relay?? Like if I just wired fogs from battery to switch, to lights to ground?? I think that switch is rated for a 30 amp circuit.

Well, if the whole circuit, ie. both lights and the switch, without the relay is fused at 15, I'm gonna guess it's less than that. Maybe I will get the ebay fogs, and just do that if i have any issues. I was just worried it was gonna be a higher amperage than that.
