    So had my 19 Si for less than 2 months and one of the fog lights is completely cracked (no plastic cover). Oem replacement is 180 for just one side.

    Thought I saw someone say the 19s retrofitted to previous years, just curious if anyone has aftermarket fog lights on their 2019.

    Really would like something like this if I have to pay 180.00, but not sure if anything but oem will fit a 2019 sedan si

    I got the OEM LED upgrades for right around $200 for the pair.

    Salvage yards are also an option

    I guess this is the thread that has me wondering what
    dor the leds are they plug in directly or is there a conversion harness you have to buy for them to work? I’m confused how the one I have is halogen and costs 360 for the set??

    Sorry...my bad. I went back and looked, they were just the bulbs, not housings.

    But to make it up to you...I did a search on car-parts.com. There were plenty of options.
    This left side replacement was $25.

    If you're not concerned about it being OEM, replacing the fog light housing shouldn't be a big expense. Dave00str showed one, and Amazon has some as well:

    If you plan on replacing them yourself, definitely get a set of ramps. Working under that section of the bumper without them is a pain in the ass (speaking from experience).

    Regarding your question about the LED lights - they should just be plug and play. Depending on the brand you buy, there may be a ballast that you'd have to mount somewhere with some adhesive, but for that area of the vehicle, I'd strongly recommend getting ballast-free LEDs. I got a set from Cougar Motor on Amazon for around $40, and they plugged right in and work just fine.

    That is perfect. Not worried about oem at all. Bought this car with 66 miles on 9/23 and I’m at 6500 now. This thing will have 50k a year or more till I get my type r. Thanks again 180 is ridiculous for 1 fog light unless maybe it was that type r one.

    Anyone else needs a quick temporary fix I found one anyone could easily find. My light still works so until I can order a new one this should protect the bulb and let me use my fog light CB3EA781-CB98-49A9-814B-12B1C50153FF.jpeg in the meantime.


    Pack was like 15.00 at Walmart buys me some time to wait on mail.

    Yea, I'm a little new to the whole car modding thing, but it's mind-boggling how much some of the simplest things can cost, depending on the brand you choose. I can understand if you're paying a little extra to support a smaller company in a niche market, but if it's something like lights (that I plug in and forget about), I couldn't care less what country they were made in.

    Hope all goes with the repair!
