i totally agre with you spidy, the quality is 100% CRAP but we have no othe rchoice, i liek the look and i did a little fixing before i installed. I paintd them, and installed HID and even now the patten still shows on the ground and mine seems like a fixture of yellows on the floor. One thing i dont agree with is how a PITA they are to install you really dont have to take off your bumber to do it, but you probably should to do the best job possible.

I like the way both your fogs are hooked up, I wonder if I can do it.
Yeah the bumper fogs lights are bad, I've had no issues with the housing, they fit real tight. The first thing I did when I got mine was to prime, paint and take the fog lights out and put OEM Mazda fog lights in. They should be sold as housing only this way you don't have to pay for the light that come's with it. Would I order them again yeah, hell yeah,. I wasn't going to spend money and not install them. I do think for those who order these will have to remember that they will have to make some modification to make them look perfect. Now I'm not saying do we have to purchase crap to get what we want. I'm saying, before I installed mine
(I was on the first order) leftyrev had given his review so I already knew what I was getting. But in all yours look good.

Yes please elaborate! You mean you got OEM fogs or just the bulbs to fit in the lower sports housings? If so, what did you have to do to make them fit, and like asked already.. how is the beam pattern compared to the shit fogs the housings came with.

Nope. It isn&#39;t spelled "bumber" you side-stepping soccer mom. It&#39;s spelled "bumper," with a "p." What are you thinking?

Yes the 6i OEM fog lights not the bulbs . I had to smooth the inside a bit because of the other lights but the fogs fit tight, the OEM have the screw on the side to keep them from sliding out. The lighting is much better then the one&#39;s that came with it. I&#39;m using PIAA ION&#39;s for bulbs, I can go down a dark street with no headlights and see what&#39;s on the ground in front of me as well as the sign&#39;s. I&#39;ll post picture&#39;s tonight.

Sweet. This may be the solution we&#39;ve been looking for... but I guess it comes at a price. Its like buying to fog light sets
