Default Wanted: Fog lights for Optra

Hey guys, I'm looking for fogs for my Optra. Preferably OE, but I'm open to good alternatives. The problem is with the shape of the spaces in the bumper, which so far only seem to fit the OE lamps. Damn you GM!!!

I'd appreciate a little help from the team.

Thanks

Hi, mine is the base model (Elite), so no fogs. The dealer wanted 12k for fitting them, which is wishful thinking on their part.

Khanak, I know the major problem is with the slots, which basically won't fit any kind of fog light that I've tried so far, except for the OE ones.

Still looking for options...

Hey guys, my regular auto accessories guy has finally managed to source OE fogs for Optra. He says they will cost between 3.5 to 3.8k for the whole kit, which is way more reasonable than any of the dealers. Will get them fitted as soon as they're delivered.

Thanks for all the help!

I enquired about fogs for the Optra on G.P road. Mahavir claims to have the OE Optra Fog lights and he is quoting 1750/rs for a pair excluding switch, wiring and installation.
I stongly suspect the authenticity of the lights due to its pricing and besides he was saying that he requires to remove the bumber to fix it.
Optra owners with OE fog lights....wht is the make of the fog light and is it possible to get it fixed outside of dealer and at what price.
