Thats what i was thinking of, something like that.

I did remove the black plastic today just to see how it came out. it was fairly easy to take off. i think you will need a few screws to keep the new fogs in place. i will make my way to the auto store today and let you know what size you will need.

Let me know how you went taking plastic parts out to fit lights. I was looking at my car and from what I could see , I will have to take that plastic cover off ( 4 Bolts 10 mm ) that fits under the radiator. I hope thats all, with my Honda Civic I had to take whole Bumper Bar off.

I ordered mine from your reference last week and he seems to be a nice guy but has a little trouble typing in English, but that's most likely the case from anyone that is from overseas, so I cant hold it against him. I paid for the fast ems shipping (he said a few days) but they still haven't arrived yet so I am starting to get a little nervous. He sent me an email with a ems tracking number but when I tracked the number at the ems website it comes up as not found, so I don't know what's really going on now. He also sent me and email that said that customs was not his problem which I don't understand what he means, but I guess I will just wait and hope they arrive Monday and then I'll go from there.

I ordered mine and paid for fast shipping but they haven't arrived in the 3-5 day time frame he said, now will have to wait until after Easter (Tuesday) GRRRR But I did pay for them using Paypal so I am not that worried , just impatient for them to arrive.
I did get this guys E-Bay site if that helps

I think my box took about 10 days, thats including the weekend time also. I would not be to worried, as if he ripped you off. Ive ordered multiple parts from this contact and have recieved everything.

By the way installation was fairly easy, approx 35min, however i could not get the top screw in on the passenger side due to the washer fluid container. Install pictures were impossible due to the cramped space, all my pictures came out blury. You will need six screws for the fogs.

How did you find access to the bumper bar to fit the fog lights, did you take off the plastic surround that fits beneath the radiator?

I did take off a few screws to loosen the plastic beneath the fog light area. it flexed back enough to fit the fog light in. like i said the passenger side was tough just fitting the fog in.

I finally got my new foglights for my Forte and man what an ordeal to fit them especially when you don't have a hoist and have to use the Kerb and footpath to aid in getting underneath car to fit the lights.
There's only 3 screws to remove old faceplate but getting at them is the pits, I have one blooded nose and hand to prove it.
Actually installing new faceplate wasn't to bad once you lined the screw holes up but linning up the 4 screws that hold the actual foglight inplace was the hardest and especially when you have the washer bottle in the road. I ended up removing washer bottle as it's almost impossible to get one screw in with bottle inplace.But now it's all done they look great it takes the blandness out of the front view of the car :)

Just bought new wheels so I gotta wait till the end of the month before I have some more money to buy these. :mad:

Hopefully I'll have everything installed by next month and I'll try and do a write up if no one does before me.

rpps looks good!

Is that your stock grill? Im talking the way it is outlined in black, here in the US they come in chrome.
Thanks Bradley.
Yes thats the stock grill on the base model here , it's the S Model the SL and Sli have the Chrome surrounds, although they might have changed it on the 2010 model.
I finnished my lights late last night now I'm waiting for the wiring harness to arrive, I might have to get an adaptor as the wiring harness only has spade lugs.By the way I put some red pin sripe on my grill and rear bumper> I also darkened the rear lights.
