I see low priced OE new fog lights on ebay for my SE at 1/3 the price of the dealer. It does not nclude the stalk but I do not plan to use the stalk switch anyway. Do you think they are OK to purchase?

But did the lights line up properly in the opening and the attachment points? Good snug fit and beam alignment?

The lights fit perfect & worked fine but the push button didn't fit that good.We had to hot glue the button on the back so it would stay.It looks good in blank we put it in.

My ebay fogs looked ok, they would have mounted perfectly if I hadn't had an XE (but I still made them mount almost perfect)...However, if you plan on going with HIDs in the fogs, they will melt the ebay fogs houseing
How do you know this? Fact or educated guess?

Melting really depends on how long you keep the fogs on though. I think if you were worried about it, you could line the hole with heat wrap to insulate against melting. IDK but i wouldnt think the ebay ones and the original OEM ones would be THAT much different


Oh and all hail 05 and BBF, what was i thinking asking a question like that. Silly silly

If you doubt that the ebay ones will melt, give them a try...Or ask Gary748, AustinGreaney, or any of the members at the last Tampa meet who saw them. It wasn't minor melting, it was about the size of a Silver dollar, and had become wavy. That was only after a couple weeks with 35 HIDS....Gary748 had the exact same HIDS with OEM fogs, you could only see some distortion if you very close. Very slight hairline cracks. Plus his worked longer, I had trouble keeping my DDM fogs working, so they weren;t even on very much......They absolutely destroyed the lenses

I had the eBay fog lights on my SE, and I had no issues with fitment. They come with 6 plastic clips (3 for each side) that you should use in place of the OEM ones. At first I didn't, and the lights wouldn't snap in properly.

I wired them up like I would off road lights, bypassing the factory harness.

I'm not arguing with you at all it just hard for me to believe it'd be that big of a difference between the two. Meantime, i'll keep cruising the boards and the dozens of junkyards here for the OEM's.
