I have a 2010 model and had the fog lights installed at the dealer when I got it new. As others have found, both mine are shattered. The lights still work but I hate the way it looks.

Any recommendations for where to buy replacement fog lights for it? What is a good price? I would like something similar to the factory ones so it looks flush.

Is it an easy install or should I have my mechanic do it?

Thanks.

The fog light without the "shield" makes it useless. The light just spreads everywhere, whereas the factory one does distribute light and puts it towards the ground/wide.

That's why you should go with OEM Honda or go with the LED I posted above if you want usable fog light.

Well..... Ive had both and say the big diff I see is without the cylinder bulb shield is that you are more visible and a bit more light is shined on the road. I have mines aimed to the gutters so I can see the edges of the road. With the aftermarket lamps I get more usable light on the road, so its more of a flood lamp vs spot.

170 for 2 isnt bad, oem is 100 each.

Thanks for the replies. It looks like the front bumper has to come off to get at the lights. That is beyond my skill level so I am getting a couple quotes to do the job.

One other thing. Does anyone know how to better protect the new lights from the same fate? I have read somewhere that you can apply a clear adhesive material over the light that might get you some time before the next small rock projectile shatters it again. Anyone know of this?
