Default Options for 04 WRX Fog Lights

Hey Guys,
I just picked up an 04 WRX wagon a little over a week ago. Down the road I would like to get bigger fog lamps for it (similar to the stock ones on the 02-03). I've been looking around all morning and haven't come up with any good info. What are my options for going with bigger lamps? What are companies I can look into that offer reasonable prices? Also how difficult is the installs on it? I have never done much modification (if any) on the past cars I've owned, but I know how to follow instructions. In my research I've seen a lot about JDM fogs, but cutting up parts of my bumper are something I don't want to do. I'm looking for something that will fit.
If this has already been hashed out in other threads please direct me there. I don't want to waste any ones time. I have searched high and low on NASIOC before asking this question but most have led me to outdated links or companies that no longer exist.
Thanks for your time!

I think your only option are the pricey jdm fogs. Otherwise you'll be doing a lot of cutting and retrofitting.

JDM fogs or you can MAKE some of the PIAA lights fit. Believe the 520 is similar size. I may be wrong though.

The only other option besides JDM would be the rally innovations fogs. Good luck finding those. They are more rare and more expensive than JDM I think. But if you were looking for ideas they have pics of them on their website.

If you're not into cutting things or drilling holes, get a light bar and throw some fogs on it. There's tons of DIYs for simple lightbars meant simply for mounting lights. Or you can buy one that offers a bit of protection for the bunper as well as holds lights (you can make one too it's just a little harder than just a bar for lights)

I'd hook you up with some links but I'm on my phone.

I've thought about trying to cut up some bezels and making a custom mounting plate for some bigger fogs down there but have never taken the time to hash it out properly.

You don't have to cut anything if you get the JDM bumper beam as well.

Thanks for the input guys. i was definitely hoping to just find something that was ultimately plug and play.
How hard is the jdm bumper beam to install yourself?

The bumper beam install is only like 6 bolts. However, it's a big waste of money when you can hack up the stock one
