      I spoke with a parts guy and he couldn't find any info on fog lite installation part requirements. He told me the fogs would cost $100 bucks but couldn't tell me what else i'd have to buy to make it work. I'm trying to figure out if adding fogs to an SE/roof would be cheaper than getting the roof/nav/fog package on a SE. If it ends up being less than $500 bucks difference, i may just get the package. Anyone know total fog install price for a SE?

      Thanks, Rick

      Do you have the part number for the foglights? (housings)

      the part guy found the lites okay, but couldn't guide me to the "total" cost of materials. i was hoping one of the sales/parts guys on the forum could point me in the right direction. the lites came with no harness/wiring. i'm assuming i need the harness but can't make a decision on which package i buy on the SE until i get the total price of fog lite materials. no rush, we're buying in march.

      thanks, rick

      I did a search and found a website that has the entire kit, with part numbers, but says it will not be available until January 2012. It had all the part numbers too. I just can not remember for the life of me where it was! I will keep looking, and if I find it, will post up.

      The chrome moldings (the two numbers ending in 2ZZ) are the same with or without fogs, so you should not need them unless you damage them during the swap.

      Do you have these parts, and the harness you mention in stock? Price?

      I do not yet. VW has the harness' on order, but they have not arrived yet. ETA is December, but no exact time of the month yet. Total price for all parts to do the swap is $462.20.

      Based on the instructions, there are some wires that need to be relocated or added to plugs. That being said, it won't be a strict plug and play, so it really comes down to your mechanical ability. I can send the pdf of the instructions to you if you like.

      I know parts are in route to someone on here (all but the harness). He is planning to install everything to complete the look, and add the harness as soon as it becomes available.

      You have to add the fogs and change out the lower grilles.
