2008 type s fog lights

I have a 08 type s that had the bumper replaced. However it was replaced with a reg tl bumper. It has no fog lights.

I want to get fog lights back on. Is it as easy as popping out the grill inserts and installing the fog light ones with the lights?

also is the aspec bumper just the lip add?

if you have a pre-2007 base bumper, there are no pre-fabbed holes for the fog light. the fog lights create an angle on the corner of the grille... a pre-2007 bumper doesnt have this angle

2004-2006


2008 base


see the difference in the angles?

You can fabricate fog lights that fit...involves cutting your current lower grille.

The most common way was to buy 2003-2004 Accord sedan fogs lights as a kit. Then cut up the griile to fit..

Since you are already prewired, perhaps just cutting to fit will do it. Then ziptie

Believe justin is alluding to this: https://acurazine.com/forums/third-g...lights-930705/


Wonder how much of the fog wiring they took out though because that can make the job easier if they left it there

Another option was the prior TL's JDM brother...the inspire fogs which are more rectangular than circle... Fits nicely in the base lower grilles

Not sure if there's a difference between 04-06 and 07-08 fogs, but I "custom fitted" 8th Gen Accord Sedan fogs on my 04 front. That's the alternate to the Inspire fogs thoiboi posted above. They are probably the closest to looking like the OEM fogs.



Here's the link to where I got them from Amazon:
