    Hi, I don't know if this has been covered. But is it possible to fit front fogs to FR-V that doesn't have them ?

    You mean without changing the bumper ? I'm not sure.

    Yeah. I know I'd need the lights, stalk and surrounds. Not sure if the wires are there to plug lights into or not so maybe need wiring. But would I need a garage to enable it all to work?

    I found this video guide for adding foglights for a CR-V, wonder if the same procedure can be applied to the FR-V



    judging by this the wiring should already be there

    I agree cars look better with fogs.
    In most of the cars I owned, the wires for the fogs are there.
    Don't forget you will need a fuse.

    It's an obvious yes.
    They would use one loom for all models as it's cheaper when mass producing.
    I'd also bet £30 that the bumper could easily be trimmed to fit the housing for original fog lights but it might be easier to source a bumper from a model with fog lights.
    Source stalk from same motor while you're there.
    Sadly I hate the way breakers rip people off and say things are mint so try to inspect them while you're there.
    Don't just get the stalk, get the wiper stalk and housing unit that gives over the steering colum as there maybe a component you need and don't get.
    (Always worth getting more bits then you need)
    Also think about fuses. You may need to install another fuse.
