i wanted to get a price quote to get the xm radio installed, since its xm ready

one dealer wanted 770 for it, i told him i can get the kit for 250 and a friend to install, so he said he would give me a 100 dollar discount, i told him to go rip someone else off

then i went to another dealer and they wanted 550 for it

i'm just going to buy the kit and get a friend to install

i would sugest the same for you... the OEM fogs you can get them for around 250... or just an oem look alike aftermarket for less than 100

There was an article in super street for installing them a few months back. Maybe its on their website? NOTE* I only picked it up to read at the store cause it had a fa5 on it!!!!

what u should do is check out www.jayhondaaccessories.com or check out his myspace at www.myspace.com/jayhondaaccessories and send him a message. he is my parts guy and is always up for some internet sales. i know he can do them cheaper than that cuz he just sold a set to my friend for a good price. so check them out and see what they can do for u. and maybe check the diys like other members have said so u dont get killed on the labor costs.

if you want to go the easiest way without paying labor go with oem fog they should be around 220$. With oem fogs you will get perfect fitment and you will have the good harness which was not the case with my k2 fogs. Yes I paid 80 bucks for them but It was a pain in the ass because I didn't get the good subharness.

here's a link for oem fog install:http://www.8thcivic.com/forums/showthread.php?t=13214

I have a pdf install for oem just pm me with you're email if you want it

You can go through ebay and get the $80 fogs or you can call around, most Honda dealerships should price match. So call around and find the best price. I can get fogs for $150ish for OEM Honda fogs.

yah like everyone else said, you can just go to Ebay, and get the K2motor foggies, they are really cheap, and fit like OEM, i have had mine for like 1 year, and no problems, and wiring should take like an hour to 2 hours.
