Fog Lights Poll

I'd like to hear from everyone on what brand of fog lights they installed or are planning on installing in their Yaris.

I've been looking around at all the different types and brands that will work for our cars. I'm having issues finding a part numbers for the actual OEM fog lights. I have actually found OEM fog lights for about $130 each side but I don't think I'm willing to pay that much.

On the other hand I REALLY don't want to install some $50 E-Bay fogs which usually come with clear or colored plastic lenses and silver reflective material.

Also 99.9% of the time when I find a fog light kit that will work for our Yaris it doesn't list the brand, which makes me a bit wary. They usually say something like "OEM Look" or "OEM Quality" which I find hard to believe.

They seem much harder to find and are more expensive but I've found nicer fog lights that have glass lenses and if wanted, yellow reflective insides.

I've been told that the latter is more like what you would get if you bought OEM and that the yellow reflective material is better then tinted plastic.

I've also heard that a lot of Toyota lighting parts are made by either Mars or Valeo. The only place I've found Mars fog lights for our car is on E-Bay for Australia but they do look really nice.

So what do you guys think?

I'll try to post up some pics and link to products that I find.

Thanks in advance for all of your opinions!

I installed the kit from Micro Image... the product is made by some company named Vinjet. Only thing I hate is the button to turn on and off... it's way to large.

Hella Fog Lights

These look much better then the sets for about $50 that's I've seen around.

60mm SAE Projector Low Beam Headlamp Module.
HL57000 - DOT
9005 Bulb
$49.83

I would like yellow though. I guess yellow bulbs or film would work.

Yellow Fog Lights

I like the yellow on the fog lights but they look kind of cheap. I've seen the same ones on E-Bay for about $50.

Yellow Fog Lights

Also they look like they are plastic lenses with yellow tint. I would prefer to get glass ones and protective film for so I don't end up with cracked lenses.

MicroImage Fog Lights

These are pretty nice.

I don't really like the chrome trim but I'm sure I"ll have to replace the knock out with an 09 OEM Sedan version.

Looks like I could save about $50 if I get the projectors fogs from RallyLights.com
