ebay. I just bought them and am waiting to get them.. 24+8 for shipping

Figure I'll try this route and then go hid if I'm not happy. These are relatively cheap, figure it's worth a shot first..

yep. you need a link or you got it? One thing I would recommend is to expedite the shipping. I just got this email:

Hi,

Your item was sent out on 3/16. It takes
7-10 days to deliver. The package requires your signature. if you don't
receive it within 10 buesiness days, please go to your local post office to
pick up the item.

Thank you.


So basically I have to wait 10 business days and somehow get to my local post office during business hours..

Received my fog lights yesterday. Had a slip on my door. Luckily I left work a few minutes early, so I was able to go to the post office before they closed and get them.. Will post pics when I install. I'll probably install them when I switch to my summer wheels, as the wheels will be off...

Meh. I like taking things apart and putting things back together. It's like playing with Legos when I was a kid but much, much better..

Legos are OK.
But this crap, I need something to lift the car up first, that will cost more than the fogs...
Once I get over that, the rest should go smoother.
But in general, even changing the regular light takes some patience... THey jam that engine compartment as much as possible...

Yeah, I know what you're saying. They really package things tight in these cars..

Its not that hard...

A couple of screws at the bottom, enough to liberate some wiggle room in the lower inner fender and you'll have access to the fog light housing/assembly. Its a 30 minute job at best even for me, and I'm DIY adverse

negative, not even the wheels came off. I did have to turn the wheels though...

You only have to lift the car if you have a thing about wearing flawless white pants but last I checked disco was dead so ...
