Lol. I was looking for the sizes on those too, but I have an aftermarket front bumper that has the mounting points built in and I didn't want to take a bumper into the hardware store.... I ended up using a nut and bolt which may not be an option for stock bumper

I've been considering this install and found the following on ebay.

2014 2016 Mazda 6 Mazda6 Bumper Fog Lights w Switch Bulbs Left Right Replacement | eBay

Is there any major difference between this and the Spyders (other than the fact the OP bought yellow and these are clear)?

if you use these. i would not recommend using the wiring harness. make sure you also order the stalk switch so you can use the factory harness.

Yep, that would be the plan. The harness isn't needed as they should plug in to the wire directly behind the grill (current cover plate). Also was aware that the stalk is needed. I'm specifically interested in how this kit from ebay compares to the Spyders as there is a $40-$50 price difference.

k cool. maybe someone here has bought that same or similar set. the one thing i could think is that he lenses may not be glass, and the fog housing/surround could be thinner plastic. if they arent oem quality, return them just gotta pay return shipping.

I saw a guy on YouTube replace the fog light on his m 3 from the front. He just pried off the fog light trim from the front. I guess the 6 isn't set up this way?

There are teeth in interior of the bumper skin that guide the fog light trim into place. You can't release them from the outside.

You don't need to pull the skin - you can go in through the fenderwells to do it. Much easier on the driver's side, but doable on both sides. (I've done the install 3 times, always through the fenders - never even jacked up the car)

That's my plan, going from under. I bought the Spyder kit but from what i read, not very good quality but there are not a lot of reviews for other brands. I als bought a pair of 30w cree h8 led to replace the halogen bulbs.
