Hi, I have a 2010 Silver GLS, and was wondering if the OEM fog lights were avalable to buy, and would it be as simple as removing the black plastic blank covers and bolting these right up? the car should be wired right? but I guess I would be missing the switch, but I'm wondering if I could install my own on the dash.

That would be fine... I would just need to be able to buy the oem lights then... haven't been able to find them on any of the online parts places....

This is the foglight housing you are looking for
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/OEM-10-11-H...sQ5fAccessories

But I wonder if you need the lamp cover too, then it will be this
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/OEM-10-11-H...sQ5fAccessories

It claims to be OEM. Which I have no idea if it's true.
But I guess if you are not trying to put HID bulbs into them, it should work fine.
Let me know if they works~ cause I am interested in getting a set too.

Oh and yes the wiring is not there for GLS, so you will need to do your own wiring + additional switch to control the foglights

The lamp cover is not OEM. You do not need to use the lamp cover if you don't want to. It is a purely decorative trim. The lamp assembly looks like the correct OEM lamp.
oh ok
I was thinking about adding these foglights too.
However, I have been thinking... Since my GLS doesn't come with foglight and I have to do my own wiring if installing one anyway.
Why don't I get some aftermarket foglight that might work better than the OEM ones?
I am thinking about getting some bigger foglights maybe with HID, however I read somewhere online that people suggested that HID foglight is defeating the purpose of foglights...

Do you think I should just go with OEM fogs with amber halogen bulbs? Or should I got for some brighter bigger aftermarket fogs?

IMO, I would recommend that you go with a OEM design light. The lamp is designed for a clear bulb, but you can put in any type of bulb that fits the mounting. If you use a amber bulb it may look nice but you maybe blinding on commiing drivers. You can also consider using a hyper white, or a PIAA high output bulb. I personally use HID for my low beam and fog lamps and I love the light it project. But that is just my .02

Wait... amber light is supposed to be not blinding coming drivers, right?
Besides, I would definitely point my foglights to the ground instead of pointing straight. I go snowboarding during the winter, I have a need to use fog light instead of just making them look good (well, that actually can be one of the reasons I want foglights LOL)

humm, I am not sure. But I would assume you can blind someone with any type of color bulb, it would depend on the reflector inside the lamp assembly. I know "fog" lamps have different reflectors and different lens than "driving" lamps. I believe the reason is that a Fog lamp will defuse and spread to a wider pattern and the light will not projecting as far as a Driving lamp.

cool, well my plan when I get some extra cash, is to buy these fog lights, and then I should be able to go to an autoparts store and get the plugs for the back of the bulbs... then make my own wiring harrnes for them (will shirnk wrap ect, make it look factory) install a relay ect... so the only thing now is I need a nice switch... I was thinking, I have what looks like a blank next the the 2 switches, one is the down hill assist switch, and the other is the traction control thing switch... I'm thinking I should be able to order one of these from the dealer, find something to take the white lettering/picture of on it off (nail polish remover), and install that into the blank spot, and use that to turn the fog lights on an off...

what say ye!!!!

Hooray! My Foglights finally just arrived. Ordered off e-bay a few wks ago. Beautiful, & well packed, original equipment pkgs too!

Now to find the time, weather, & energy to just mount them. Then next comes the task of trying to find a way to wire them in. I haven't looked up close yet, but I doubt there is stock wiring there to just plug them into on my GLS :(

I wonder where to put the switch? Or how to get the wiring through the firewall? I would like them to be powered on by the headlights circuit, but not sure how to do that either? Oh well, I guess it'll be an annoying, frustrating, time consuming process of discovery. Like I really need to crawl under there, and do this as a senior citizen, but I live in the hills & country, and any extra light is vital in the pitch black up here. Too bad Hyundai didn't offer these as an option on my GLS, Shame on them! :rant2:

my dealer actually offered to install the fog light for my GLS for 450USD.
I refused since I thought I can do it for much cheaper...
