My front grill/fascia, where my fog lights go, has been broken since I bought my car. I am looking for an after market replacement for this. I don't really want the stock look, so I was wondering if there is a company that makes new or different ones? I have looked on e-bay and found only original ones. I also need some new fog lights. If anyone has any help or ideas that would be much appreciated. Pictures are helpful. Thank you.

I've never seen any aftermarket front spoilers, with or without the foglights. Of course there are a number of complete front bumper aftermarket kits. You go always make your own grille insert, or change color, which is escentually what you would have if you could find the whole spoiler assembly (you still need the frame). You need to be careful , however, that you do not deplete the cfm of air flow as the cooling and a/c systems depend on it for proper cooling.

There are / were actually quite a few at one time. Lots of spoilers you can add on in addition to the front bumper. Don't have to replace the entire bumper.

The problem these days will be actually finding them.

Here's one New Dimensions still has:



Kinda pricey though.

There were lots of kits back in the day, but like I said, might be kind of tough to find them these days.

sweet thanks for some info and the pictures. I like that new dimensions one, but I am a cheap. So I guess I will see what I can make. I do still need some fog lights, suppose all the ones on e-bay would work?

If your going to build one, why not use true FOG lights instead of the stock ones which aren't! They will still wire into the existing harness, you'll just need a pair of pigtails to add to the aftermarkets to plug them in. Any 55w max fog will work with the existing wiring.

I too, like the New Dimension, but really found no info on the given site, and nothing comes up on Google. I could help offset the purchase with the $$ from selling the one I have. Would look good on my NBC and I need a little touch up paint work anyway so I have to buy the paint.

I call them ditch lights, because all they do is light up the ditch alittle bit.
Nothing wrong with the lights, they just lack aiming capability. Probably good though, as otherwise evryone would find a way to refit them with blue or purple HIDs and turn them up so they are in everyone's faces. :rolleyes: Right? Isn't that what we do with all the retrofit HID aftermarkets? 'F everybody else, it's all about us and the show! That's a fad that can't pass soon enough. ;)

Re:Leather Bag

Hi Guys,
In British English, a car's fascia or facia is its instrument panel and dashboard area which lies in front of the driver and front-seat passenger. It is used primarily in enthusiast and specialist circles.In recent American English usage, a car's fascia is its front-end "look" - grille, headlamps, front bumper, and other details. This area is possibly the most critical in defining a car's identifiable look, and is also the easiest[citation needed] to restyle when a car's styling needs to be refreshed. Again, this word is mostly used by the auto trade and automotive journalists. Furthermore, the fascia is used to describe the single panel that conceals the bumper, front or rear, and ties the bumper element visually with the sides of the vehicle—often including an inlet for cooling.
