OEM Fogs vs Aftermark fogs

Hey guys,

I am going to be putting in fogs myself and I was wondering what your guys opinions of OEM Fogs vs Aftermarket Fogs are?

I have found Aftermarket fogs on a Website which includes everything i need however I'm not sure if it includes the plate for where the button is supposed to go.

Your thoughts?

Hi, most aftermarket light kits comes with the switch and the panel (fits the slot).
Mine is from the K2 motor, comes with everything.

no they dont come with the switch. they come with the button. the switch is for the steering column which has to be purchased only from a honda dealer.

switch=replaces turn signal with fog controls
button=looks like vsa button

I got mine from Ebay also and the only problem i have had with it was my fault. i didn't use a good grounding spot for the wire that hooks to the brown greased up plug near the washer fluid tank. I also love how they blink when i lock my doors.

i've owned 2 sets of aftermarket fogs and i find the output is garbage and some of the wiring harnesses are just terrible. I traded my 08 in for a 11 civic si and i love the oem fogs.
