2009 Rear Fog Light Switch Source

I've looked at the usual suspects, but no sign of the LCI chrome accented headlight switch with rear fog button being available.

Anyone get one? If so, where?

TIA.

Ergonomically, it's superior. Much easier to grab than the old one.

I actually tried doing that, much easier said than done. Pretty sure it's glued in.

I bought mine through my local Italian dealer. It was a little pricey though, so I guess it was kind of worth it for the OEM look.

Are you for real? You're telling me your poor hands get tires from using the old switch?
