Angry Fog Light Protection

Just to warn everyone...

GET FOGLIGHT PROTECTION

If you guys have not priced out replacement fog lights for your WRX, they are $180.00....EACH

So I highly recommend you either get covers or get some Stongard type protection, which I will be getting here as soon as I get the new fog-light in.

I had to replace two in the RS before I got smart, but I know they were not as much as I just paid for the ones for the WRX. But I had a hookup back then, and my mind is not what it used to be.

Well just thought I would warn everyone, because I really did not remember them being that bad.

Later....Kris

You could put in PIAA halogens for less than that, and have a lot more light. I put the protectors on my fogs at the dealers. Not very impressed with the light the stock units throw, however.

I know you can go aftermarket, but I like driving with my fogs on all the time. So if I go with a brighter light like the PIAA's or the Hellas, then I can only use them when no one is around. I did not look into too much, but I bought a pair of Hella 500's, and they were WAY too bright for daily driving around town.

But I am kinda weird like that.

Yup, I used Stonguard light protection on my Morette's. Gotta protext that inverstment.

$25 for StonGuard Fog protection vs over $100 for replacement parts.

I bought the stoneguard protection before winter and haven't had any problems yet. Although, it sucks that they are yellowing, anyone know how to clear them up?

You have it on the hood right? Is that where it is yellowing, or is it on the lights? Does it seem to be yellowing on the outside of the plastic? There might b e some cleaner that will take the yellow off, you might just want to try some different cleaners. Try WD40, thats what I use to clean everything!

I have it on the hood and all four lights up front. It's yellowing everywhere, but especially noticable on the lights. I tried the WD40 and couldn't tell much difference, a little maybe. I will try some paste wax later this evening too.

WD40 and Simple Green are the two things I use most in the garage; kinda like a chainsaw and sledge hammer when building a house

Yup, the hammer and heat gun for me. I haven't noticed much yellowing on the headlights. Give it time I'm sure it will start.

It's cheaper to buy the foglight KIT for the current RS ($280.12) rather than buy two replacement foglights!

But, still it's expensive.

Stongard is working good so far, no chips yet.

Anytime you put a higher wattage bulb in your fog lights it will turn the reflector brown.

Yes they work good with the Morettes.

I do not think they have turned yellow, but then it might be hard to tell on my car.

StonGard headlight protectors are guaranteed not to turn yellow, crack or fade for as long as you own the car. I will give you a tip if you want the damage warranty and you buy just the light protection FILL OUT the extended warranty info when you get it. The cost is $15.00 for this. If you buy the paint and light kit you get the warranty in full.
