I really want to put in clear fog lights in the holes below the headlights on my 04. Oem kit is about $300 so looking for a good quality aftermarket or good price on oem kit. Any help greatly appreciated. Also, is instillation easy or difficult. Thanks
ssg510, I've installed three OEM kits using the round foglights. These have a very good reflector and optics and a very solid beam pattern with a definite cutoff to avoid blinding people (if properly aimed). These are starting to become scarce, but the good news is that they've come down in price.
99-02 uses p/n 08V31-S0X-100
03-04 uses the more expensive (as you mentioned) p/n 08V31-S0X-101 kit (form fitting, not round fog lights)...but I used the -100 round fog kit on my 2003. Saved over $100, but had to do some custom splicing on the wiring to make it work. I can't recall what I did (it was years ago), but they work. As well, even though the switch fits just to the side of the TCS/Cruise switch (versus the center panel), it's an odd fit. Still, I was glad to make it work.
You bet. Yeah, I was a little put off at first by the tiny round lights...the form fitting ones definitely look better. They both put out the same beam pattern (I compared them to a guy in town who has the newer ones), so it's a matter of which looks better to you on your man-van. I think the round ones may run a little hotter due to the tiny enclosure, but that's about all I can think of regarding differences. If you find a great internet deal on the -101 lights, please post with a link.
