THanks,

Danielsternlighting is a great place. Also rallylights is another long time reputable site with good quality lights.

Neither site sell fog lights. Actually, neither of them sell OEM replacement of anything. Not sure if it was meant an attempt to help me mod my car instead of purchasing parts to replace worn/broken OEM parts.

I was highly impressed with the TYC-branded replacement fog light that I got from Amazon for my wife's Corolla. It wasn't identical but it was solid, heavy, and had an apparently DOT-certified glass lens and an OEM-style bulb socket that the cheaper ones didn't have. And it was 1/10th the price of an OEM unit.

That said, within a week it had a huge crack in it but I'm going to chalk that up to the road construction my wife has been driving through lately. No idea if Amazon or TYC would have replaced it but the car is now gone.

Rock Auto, or your local junkyard smile

I can't believe they'd fail you for a fog light, since they're not even required crzy

There is a crack in the lense that probably occured when I drove my my house to the inspection place. Waited in line for 3 hrs (there were 4 cars in front of me) to be told I failed inspection.

Rock auto's price is almost twice as much as carparts.com. Is carparts.com good site? I know rock auto is.

Both fog lights in the Matrix are broken not just cracked. There's missing glass in the housing. I remember a salt truck flying by me on the hwy that I think did one of them in. Not in a hurry to replace since new ones will probably break as well. If I do replace then probably put some Lexan no them.

Not familiar with it, check Amazon as well for pricing.

Junk yard if you just want to pass inspection.

Amazon has the entire assembly for 86+tax and stuffs. Rock Auto is 60 + 7 shipping for just the housing and maybe bulb (not listed). Carparts has it for 29 + 6 for shipping.

Junk yard has no Honda Fit and they normally want a lot of parts not guarantee to work anyway.

Thankfully we have no inspections here in Florida, when we did have smog inspection it only took 15 minutes.

Here's some reviews on carparts:

BBB grade is D- which equals a big HECK NO! I'm all for trying new businesses out but not in this case.

The honda fog lights are not special and do not really add much to your lighting. They are mainly cosmetic. Therefore don't spend a lot of money on replacing them. Just get the tyc part from amazon or rock auto or ebay even.

The fit's lights are quite prone to breaking, so I suggest you also buy film to protect them-especially when you have new ones for replacement it will be easier to install the film. Example headlight armor . com .
