Price to install fog lights

Hey guys I was wondering if anyone could tell me how much they paid to have their fog lights installed. I want to get them installed on my car but would like to know if I need to install them myself or if the dealer would be reasonably priced to install them. Thanks.

Self install isn't hard, just pull the front bumper. EX has the wiring harness so its plug and play, I hear the harness is easy to get to when the bumper is off.

I'm going to be doing mine next week, I'll keep you posted how it goes

I just had them installed on my 4cyl coupe this past week. The total job with parts and labor cost me 348.00 which also included 7% sales tax.

you should do the install yourself all you have to do it plug the harness into the wires you have and to the battery. i was thinking about doing this too. but i was also thinking of doing a v6 bumper conversion instead.

Lol, 350 bucks for a 20 minute job. Definitely do it yourself, you always learn something about your car when you do stuff yourself.

Do it yourself and save a whole bunch of money. I wish I could but I cant figure all this wiring business for the LX-S since we don't have a harness.

HONDADRIVER09, I live in an area of extreme fog and need fog lamps. My 09 Accord Coupe came with front bumper / fender inserts for fog lamps, and wiring harness had terminals to plug in fog lamps. Self install involves removal of bumper, which is something I am unfamiliar with, experience does count. Rather than risk doing something dumb by doing it myself with no experience in this fitment, I decided to have Honda provide this service. It cost me $550, with lamps at time I purchased my car, which was a negotiating point. I have used those Fogs perhaps 2-3 times a month since last August, and on one occasion Fog was so thick I could not see more than 2 car lengths in front of me. Fogs helped me be on my way safely, Regards

Lol, it's actually $148.00 for a 20 minute job. The lights were 200.00. I'm comfortable knowing that if something goes wrong, honda is responsible, as opposed to not being comfortable by doing it myself. By the way, 20 minutes?

I'm not sure why the housing color matters. They're hidden behind the bumper opening and you can't see anything from the front, as in the picture. Coming directly from the dealer, this is similar to what was installed.

I think he's talking about the accessory sedan foglights with the shroud after you cut out the bumper... like so...

I see. When he said "he can't get an answer" I was under the impression he meant from the forum. Since there wasn't a question in the thread about what he was looking for specifically and in keeping with the topic, I thought he meant the ones like I had installed. I tried.

The bumper takes 5 minutes max to remove unless you've never done it before, then 10 minutes max. Flat head screwdriver and a phillips is all you need. Bolt on the fogs, plug them in after you find the wiring, slap the bumper back on. Ta-dah. It's probably a different story if you don't have the EX without the wiring harness or whatever.

Think you have to buy the harness and wire it? Unsure though.
