Euro light switch, thoughts?

I'm in the market for the Euro light switch to enable my rear fog lights. If those of you in NA have completed this mod, where did you purchase the part? I found the part on the ECStuning website but it is $140.00 and I have seen people mention in threads that they have bought it for somewhere close to $50. Any feedback is appreciated! thanks!

ECS is the only place that sells the switch that has the silver metal trim that I've found, so that's where I bought mine.

You certainly can find it cheaper elsewhere if you don't need that trim.

My anal retentive nature made me buy the 'spensive part from ECS because I didn't want to change the look of my interior.

DIY, popped open my light switch, cut the tabs, used a lego piece and a wire tap to make the switch. Only difference from the euro switch is that I dont have the rear fog logo on my switch

Actually ISTR a thread where someone wanted the logo on the button but didn't want to pay the big bucks for the switch with the metal trim and was able to use parts from the less expensive black knob switch to add the fog switch to their original swith assy... can't remember if it was here or one of the other forums though

+1 It takes about 20 minutes, and is free.
