eusomich, I'm not sure if this applies to your car but here is a tread of my experience installing an OEM Nissan fog light kit for my Note SV. In my car, everything was pre-wired so I did not have to run any wires through the firewall, it was all plug and play which was great! It was a bitch removing the bumper though.

[quote=dude baker;187634]I purchased a fog lamp kit off of ebay from a seller called "MaxLiner." It's not OEM, and is more than likely a knockoff sourced from Alibaba or an aftermarket manufacturer. It was only $80 shipped for everything, including wiring, mounting hardware, relay, fuse, and bulbs. The quality is just OK, fit and finish are not perfect.

The kit is supposed to be plug and play for the Versa S, which does not have pre-existing wiring for fog lights. If you have an SV, all the wiring is there, and all you need are the fog lights and stalk switch.

Everything about this kit is plug and play, except the included switch - there's just nowhere it will fit in the dash. I was able to get everything wired up and tested to ensure it all works, but I won't be able to actually use the fog lights until I find a switch that fits the stock dash opening.

Anyway, here's what they look like turned off.

That looks nice! I just bought the same kit for my car. Same guy. I compared them with the real parts I have in inventory and they are ok but definetly not OE quality. At least on mine the fog light lenses I'm pretty sure are plastic and OE's are glass. The bezels look close but some quality issues IMO. Get what you pay for, $80 VS. $300.

I replied to your PM. I agree, not OE quality, but better than those big blank pieces of plastic.

Went to the dealership today looking for a price to get the foglights installed. First guy told me if I didn't buy the car with the lights installed from the dealer, then I was out of luck and my ONLY option was after market lights AND my car wasn't even wired for foglights. I told him I could get the part numbers but I had to run out to my car to get it. Of course I never see this jabrony once I get back. After waiting for 15 minutes I saw that dude wasn't coming back. I asked the next guy about it and he actually looks in the system and tells me there is no kit available for the 2015 SV but I could buy all the parts separately for $580. He did make sure to tell me that the kit could come soon and that it would probably be cheaper and to wait it out.

Just needed to vent, sorry.

Love like you wish to be loved.

If you get the same El Cheapo aftermarket kit I did, it's a pretty straight forward install. I am keeping an eye out for some OEM housings to show up on eBay though. The chrome on the El Cheapo housings is, well... Cheap. Its already starting to pit.

Fresh Powder 2015 Versa S 5-speed - Work Euroline DH, BC Racing Extreme Low Coils, Tanabe front under brace, ARC Shift Knob, OEM-Style Fog Lights, Sound Deadening, Black Lower Grille Uprights, Mini Cooper Floor Mats, Chrome Door Handles. We need rear sway bars!

I was trying to stay away from DIY kits, simply because I thought it would be a difficult job. After getting quoted almost $600, which my wife seemed to think was reasonable, I am about willing to give it a try.

Thanks, I'll go back through this post to look for the kit.

Love like you wish to be loved.

I guess it depends on your own mechanical ability, but it was an extremely easy install for me.

If it can be done, I'll screw it up.

Is there any LED (hight quality, BTW)fogs that will fit in the holes?

3 1/2" diameter... JWspeaker has nothing less than 4"


found a few at 3.75"

and then I found this:

PIAA | Toyota Tacoma 2012+ VSK LP530 3.5" LED Fog Light Kit, SAE Compliant #05350

they even have a driving lamp size at http://www.piaa.com/store/p/640-Toyo...Light-Kit.aspx

When my warranty expires, I'm really tempted to put these in!!!!

then there are these, the price is very low, not too sure, kind of cheap looking: http://store.ijdmtoy.com/High-Power-...lo-led-fog.htm
