I picked up a set of yellow AEM foglights at Advance Auto for like $17.99 that look pretty damn similar to the OEM fogs and fit very nicely into the fog light spaces on the 90-91 front bumper. Required a small (like 3/4" x 1.5") hole to be Dremeled out to accomodate the mounting bracket. I need to post some pics...I'm pretty happy with them, and I sure didn't want to spend $200 on OEMs.

AEM or APC?
I would like to see pics of what they look like on the car.

Oops, APC is right, not AEM, duh. Yeah, they look just like the ones posted above, except mine are the yellow ones instead of the clear ones (they have both at my local Advance Auto). I just ran out and took a pic. Yeah, that's part of the USGP Formula 1 track (Turn 10 area) in the background :)

Too bad they don't have that shop in Canada,because i can't order off them :frusty: Happen to have a part number for those fogs with the amber lens?How do the fogs fit inside the 90-91 bumper?Hard to mount them or was it pretty easy??
I looked at APC's website and found what I think is the right part number, it's 505010A for "amber" and 505010C for "clear". They want like $45 on the APC site, but if you google 505010A you'll find them for closer to what I paid. Here they are at cardomain for $21...

Those images make them look more amber (like ebay corner lights) where mine look a lot more yellow...I'm not sure if it's just a bad photo on APC's part that's getting used everywhere or what, because I don't see any yellow fogs. I don't think I still have the box, but if I happen to go to Advance Auto I can check for a part number, but on their website they just have 505010C and 505010A so it's probably right.

Installing them was really easy. I took the front bumper off, but in retrospect I didn't really have to. I cut a small rectangular opening through the bottom of the fog light recess in the bumper with a Dremel, just big enough for the mounting bracket to fit through. I then drilled a hole and bolted up the mounting bracket to the very bottom part of the bumper (the part that curves back under and is parallel to the ground). This seemed pretty secure and ensures that the fogs will move with the bumper if it gets bumped, etc.

As a side note, if you get a set be sure to grab a auxillary lighting wiring kit. The lights claim to come with what you need, and it has a diagram on the box showing everything, but it just comes with part of the wiring and a switch. The relay and all the wiring you really need isn't actually in the box, it's a $10 kit from APC that I also got at Advance Auto.

Lemme know if you have any more questions...
