eBay OEM look Foglights

I ordered a set of OEM fit fog light kit from eBay last week. Anyone ordered these eBay kits and installed them successfully? I don't have the OEM light switch stalk with fog lights.

I have, and they look great. My order had the bezels, the lights (incl. Bulbs), wiring and the OEM like switch, which I placed behind the shifter. Let me find a way to upload the pics and get back to you.


Edit:

Here's a pic from outside, later I'm gonna take more pics.

You might consider resizing before posting.

Also, your headlights need help, my friend

I know about the pic, I just uploaded it to img.ur, and about my headlights.... They are beyond help... I'm looking for a new pair... But if you zoom in you can see I have projectors inside... Superior headlight beam, and even with the headlights in this state, it's really plenty for me at nights

No need to zoom, it's plenty big

Just teasing

If/when you get replacements, I assume you'll transfer over the projectors?

If I buy stock headlights I might retrofit these (needed some cutting to fit those) or 2.5" projectors
But I'm mostly looking for aftermarket options that have projectors themselves.
I'm just worried they'll turn yellow really quickly

Gotcha.

A way around that is to have a body shop spray them with some clear coat as soon as you get them. I had my body shop polish and clear my headlights once they started looking tarnished and they've been clear as glass ever since. It's an added expense, but it will ensure your investment in new headlights is maximized.

Try getting some 1500 grit sandpaper and wetsand over them. After that some compound and a buffer or orbital. If that oxidation is on the outside it should help. After that put some wax over it.

About the eBay fog lights, I actually spliced them with my parking lights so they would come on with the parking lights. This is the easiest way of doing it even thought they remain on when high beams are on. So far so good.
