      i20 after-market fog lamps

      hey guys,
      i need to install a pair of decent quality (but not too costly) after-market fog lamps in my i20 (i own a sportz model which did not use to come with OEM ones). i'm certainly not planning to go for the OEM fog lamps as it will cost a whooping ~10k (including front bumper replacement, fog lamp assembly etc.).
      i'm also planning to install a HID kit in the fogs as i'm already using HID for the headlamps.
      the ones available at my nearby outlets are of poor quality and i don't think they will even sustain the heat generated by the HID bulbs.
      Delhi-NCR guys plz help me locating an outlet where i can find some decent quality ones. i'm also open for some online sources.
      thanks

      even some of the reputed outlets like motor concept are not having branded ones other than "asian". any review on the brand?

      try hella micro DE projectors..they are easy to flush mount on the OEM fog lamp location..the base model costs around 5k.

      visited the workshop today and my SA told me that there is no need to replace the bumper to install fog lamps. just a gimmick by certain dealers to extract money from customers!

      need some advice on this..again
      the workshop has quoted 1600 bucks for just a pair of OEM fog lamps (excluding wiring, switch assembly and labor) whereas the accessories division in the showroom is quoting a whooping 8000 bucks (including fog lamps, switch assembly and wiring) + labor charges!
      now, what if i buy the fog lamps for 1600 from workshop and get them installed from my installer using my own wiring etc.?

      another illogical policy of ASS..they don't just hand over parts to customers..its mandatory to get it installed from their workshop! now that was not possible for me..
      so..after days of research, was finally able to source OEM fog lamps at a killer price!
      now, need advice on what to use for fogs..i'm already using a pair of 6000k HIDs for the headlights..what options do i have other than going for a HID kit in the fogs?
