Default fog light shattered, where to get a new one?

A rock (I guess) hit the driver side fog light and shattered the lens and the bulb. Dealership wants $172 to replace...that seems a bit steep to me. I cant seem to find the part online, anyone have any suggestions?

on a side note, this happened only a little bit after my windshield spontaneously decided to crack. It seems as if maybe something the size of a grain of sand hit it, and then the windshield cracked a good two feet total length within the next day.

Does subaru use cheap glass or something??

I had a rock hit our Intrepid windshield and put a small hole with a couple of spiders.took it immediatly to a windshield shop and had it repaired.........looks almost new...........if you dont fix right away...it starts to crack.......pressure and temperature changes also assist in the process...have to keep up wtih any small hits to the windshield...

If your are going to replace your windshield......i have a suggestion...

Tint the windshield before you put it back in.all the high end cars
do this....I did it on my 85 RX7 GSL-SE....and the interior is 10 times cooler for it and the night time driving is better.

Check junk yards for a replacement lens..........I think they are the same size as the outbacks and some other subarus....

I wish I had thought about the tinting, but the windshield is already replaced. It cracked really bad before I could do anything -- I wasnt even aware that anything hit the windshield and all of a sudden I hear this cracking noise...crack, crack, crack, literally in front of my eyes the windshield cracked a good foot right off the bat.

Junk yard idea sounds good for the foglight.
