Ebay fogs, oem wiring. Can't beat it. Had my setup for a while now and the lenses have never cracked or fogged up or melted or anything. Just whatever you do, don't use the ****ty wiring "harness" that comes with the Ebay fogs. Almost impossible to get that to work

You need to read more posts. Turn stalk with eBay fogs has its own thread. It is expensive for the 2007 but easily found. See #4 Honda Automotive Parts

one of my lens is totally broke, and the other is cracked, i plan to get a descent size of lexan, and cut as many lens templates as i can from it... that way ill have like 20 replacement lens for like $15....
i think the beauty of lexan is its really hard to break

Does the price of oem outweight the cost from eBay?

Get the oem ones, the housing is way better quality and the wiring.

Personally if I could do it again I would get oem from the dealership and let them deal with cracked lens's all the time

Or if your not sure about e-bay you can visit one of our site sponsors Official NOPI Custom and Performance Auto Parts Since 1966 they back all their products.

Thats where I got mine. Everything went smooth, wiring is similar to the fogs found on ebay.

You pay for what you get. Talking to a couple people locally, OEM seems like the best route.

why not? if the part is under warranty they should replace it. pretty sure they are not meant to crack

I know that's what I need, but if you actually click on the link I need, it doesn't list 6 and 7. My question is where could I get those? Or are they included with 5 on that website.

Never mind, thanks! I found out that you actually have to enter each one separately. Sorry for the double post.

I'm going with eBay Fogs - only because they use a dash mounted switch, instead of the stalk mounted switch.
