Well from my expirience there are quite a few things to change , new bumper if yours does not support the fog lights, replace the lever inside the car to the one that has the fog light option plus the lights and the wiring kit, it's going to be pretty pricy, I did this in my 2010 civic I had bought a Ex model and 3 months later they came out with fog lights , really pissed me off so I spent a grand total of 2500 on parts and labor , the bumper did support the fogs but it was about 799.87 for the actual fogs, plus the wiring kit that goes ffrom the lever 235.47, plus the actual lever to replace on the steering Colum 125.88 , and the professional installation 799.89 by Honda .
Check to see if it's cheaper to buy a bumper with fogs already in it and jut buy the lever and the wiring kit , find a local shop that would be reasonable price and have them do it , it seems kinda tricky due to wiring and tucking .

Default Re: need help with bumpers

You don't need to do all that to our cars.

Here's a list of stuff you'll need:

- 07/08 front bumper
- 07/08 fog light assemblies
- 07/08 headlights
- 07/08 hood
- 07/08 grille stock or aftermarket.

It's called the 07/08 swap. Do a little searching around and youll find the "how to"

Why can't he just buy the hybrid bumper with fog lights from Edgar, and connect the fogs to a separate switch?

It's much cheaper to do it that way than to do a whole swap

You just have to buy the parts for 07/08. Just follow the parts list that Nick posted in post #3.
