I was unhappy with the blank panels on the front of my wife's 2015 CRV LX so I picked up one of the ebay kits to add fog lights. The kit I purchased came with the fog lights, trim panels, and a wiring harness. The only thing missing in terms of the hardware was the sandwich inserts that go into the bumper that allow you to use a screw to mount the fog lights. I had a universal set from the parts store and was able to get the lights mounted without issue. The wiring harness was another story. The harness came in 2 pieces; 1 section for the connections to the bulbs and a ground wire for that and another section with a relay and the wiring to connect to the switch. After much confusion, I ended up figuring out that it just needed a ground connection on both harness pieces (there was a ring terminal on both sections to slip over a bolt for the ground, and then a wire run directly to the battery for the main relay power feed. The last wire was tricky that was a switched 12V source. I ended up soldering a wire to the 7.5amp fuse in the driver kick panel that I tested was truly switched 12v. Overall I'm really happy with how they look and work. I'm sharing this because I hadn't seen any other info here.

There's the finished product. They look much better than the blank plates that were in there before, IMO. The light they provide is pretty good too.

Here's a photo before I did the fog lights and you can see the blank plates where the fog lights are supposed to be.
