    If your're like me, you know the stock factory fogs don't to a whole much. There aren't many options out there for those of us who want brighter fogs without blinding on-coming traffic. Putting HID's in factory fog reflector lamps will simply melt them and produce glare for days (been there done that LOL). What I have here are projector fog lamps with a sharp cutoff. I have these on for awhile now, and love them so much that I decided to buy a bulk order from my distributor for cheaper than if you were to buy just a set. PM me if you'd like a set for yourself! I will be posting these in the sale section as well. Selling a pair for $120 shipped priority USPS. Click on my sale thread for info if you'd like purchase a set! (For Sale - All Gen. 3 Projector Fog Lights (BOLT ON!) $120 | PriusChat)

    Let me say that these projectors are completely BOLT ON. No modification required. They simply replace your stock fogs utilizing the same mount points and bolt, and same stock bulb if you don't want to upgrade to HID's. These will bolt right in to any Gen. 3 Prius (2010-2015). Utilizes any H11 type bulb.

    Manufactured to DOT/SAE standards/requirements.

    I put 3000k yellow HID bulbs in mine. Check them out!

    Fogs Only (this was taken on the driveway, about 8ft away from wall to show sexy cut-off, fogs were not fully aligned yet at the time this was taken)

    Let me say these babies are BRIGHT! What I love about them is that they are also fully vertical adjustable with a built in screw so you can raise or lower the beam to your liking.

    Thanks for looking! PM me if you'd like to purchase a set or post any questions/comments! I have a bunch of these looking for a new home!

    EDIT******
    Been getting a lot of PM's on what supplies are needed and how to install factory fogs.
    Here are a few quick references that I personally used and purchased.

    Install Blog
    YouTube video on how to remove bumper etc.
    Harness + Correct switch (comes with spare OEM fogs)
    Grill Assembly site I purchased from when on sale. May be cheaper on other sites. Part # 53102-47020
    HID kit currently using (as shown in pictures 3000k color)

    Nice!!! I must say though, they're more driving lights than fog lights, because of the narrow beam pattern. Foglights would have a much wider beam pattern, that would illuminate the area in front of and to the sides, of the vehicle better.

    Yup full vertical adjustable. These have a screw on there where you can loosen to raise or lower the beam to your liking.

    Correct they are super thick optical quality glass lens, pretty heavy and feels substantial in the palm. The base is also metal to withstand heat. These are made specifically for HID's.

    Just the projector. Utilizes H11 type bulbs just like our stock prius bulbs or HID's.

    Bare lights only, need switch and wiring harness, and foglight shrouds or grill with foglight openings, depending on year and model.

    Yes I know. What I am trying to say is that for people who want HID upgrade in fog lights, they can do it correctly by buying this setup and installing it in their original location using the original wiring and shrouds.

    My post was for other members who might not realize all the components they might need to use these, if they don't already have foglights. :)

    There's a link in the first post to the thread in Private Sales. It's $135, which includes shipping.

    I'm probably going to get a pair myself. :)

    Thank you very much for getting this out. I will definitely look into getting one once my foglights are installed.

    One thing though. Your phraseology is wrong:

    "approved" isn't the right word. There's a memo from USDOT stating that they don't approve or disapprove anything.

    It would be correct to instead say "manufactured to DOT/SAE standards/requirements".

    Cheers! :)

    Let me ask you a question related to the fog lights, do you know what size and thread the stock screws/bolts are? Thanks.

    Thanks Nobody123! edited my first post! :)
    Yeah stock fogs are no use sadly. Install them first and get back to me when you do decide to upgrade to Projectors!


    Hey kingnba6,

    Sorry unfortunately I don't. I just reused my stock fog bolt that came with my car. Interestingly enough, there is only 1 bolt holding the fogs in place! comes stock like that from Toyota factory lol.
    Just noticed that you have a Prius C, do you by any change know if Gen 3 Prius fogs will fit? I Got to research some more but just thought i'd ask you in case you knew. ;)
