Any info out there on a FACTORY foglight kit?
Are you looking to upgrade to a fog kit since you have a base prius?
I wouldn't consider them fogs really. My HIDs work better, and they really didn't help in snowy conditions either.
I am looking to get rid of the ugly grill ends...and go with the factory foglights
have you checked ebay?
I have checked Ebay...and all over the web..
hmm. I haven't seen any sorces since i joined. I read almost every forum created. Unfortunetly at this time of night, the forums are not too active. keep bumping your topic and you'll be sure to get a response sooner or later.
Factory fogs are useless. The HIDs outshine them, and have a good top cut-off, making them fine in fog as-is. You might look for some high intensity foglamps that could be mad eto fit your stock grilles after cutting out and perhaps reinforcing them. Then use the usual relay/fuse protections.

Only with the stock bulbs! Just add a 9006 HID kit to the factory, and I hear they're instantly useful. That's my plan... stay tuned.

Check my thread in my signature. I've done the HID Conversion to my fogs.

Like Bjorn says - he's already done it... and that has inspired me. You just need a 9006 HID conversion kit (many brands and tints to choose from) and you're on your way. I recommend that you don't go above 6000k for color temp, unless you really like reduced output, and purple lights.
I saw DocVijay's installation. Still unsure if it's the kind that I can do. I mean, I can do Coastal's EV mod but not the OEM one.

The 4300k is fine if you want to match the factory HID's. That's why I went with that temperature.

Not much to it. The first part is like changing the bulb (you have to remove a couple of bolts on the belly pan and pull the plastic down, then reach in a twist the bulb out, and the new HID in). The harder part is finding a place to strap the balast. I think you can do it if you managed the Coastal mod. The OEM version of the EV mod isn't much different, BTW! Just a few more panels to remove.

Here is the original Toyota part number for the fog lights 81211-52070 times two. Left and right are the same part number. The grilles that surround them are 53112-47030 and 53113-47030 (left and right) The bulbs are standard 9006 bulbs that can be found in ANY auto parts store. The wiring I got on ebay. Here is what I used...
The kit had the correct plugs for the bulbs. It had a relay even a switch. A simple positive and negative connection. No big deal. From the outside they look stock because they are.
The original grilles pop right out. Gently pull them out. The lamps literally snap in. The bumper is molded for them even on the non fog light cars. The new grilles also snap right in. It couldn't be easier.
