Cost of dealer fog lights installation?

I know there is at least one member here who did their own fog install on a Sport, I think it was @wpgguy. I don't know that it is a difficult install, but maybe a call to your dealer will get the quickest answer....

Update: Dealer said theres no mod or option to add fog lights to 2014 sport, if you want a backup camera added though, its gonna be 600 bucks *im sure that can be cut down by $100-$200 if you buy and bring your own parts . i already know that someone here manually added fog lights to their sport but i dont wanna go through the trouble of all that, if anything i'll probably just get the best headlight kit on the market to help with lighting conditions at night.

I can personally recommend the XD HID kit for 2014 KLs. I put the kit in mine and it makes a huge difference in visible light in front of the vehicle.

I swapped my fogs for the Rigid Industry's... they're legal for driving and I couldn't be happier.

Around the time they arrived I had knee surgery so I had gotten a quote for someone else to install them.. $300 bigs ones. I said no thank you, dealt with a little bit of pain, and put them in myself. Little tricky to get to some of the bolts (I didn't remove the tires) but totally doable.

^^^This, 110%. I just installed the HID kit, lowered the factory headlight aim a bit and the result is... I can see now.

Just a note : using fog lights to enhance poor headlights is not only counterproductive (it doesn't help), it is annoying to other drivers and is illegal is some states and other countries. HID kits are not leagal either, but in these halogen projectors, with a correct aim, they are not offending to oncoming drivers.

Good luck

Adding foglights can be done for around $100 to make it look stock, the only downside is you will need a switch to turn them on/off, there is currently no way to swap out the current headlight switch for one that has fogs as the vehicle itself isn't programmed for them.

If you have some experience with wiring, dismantling, and a garage, then this is definitely a DIY project, otherwise you might have better luck finding a brighter headlight.
