i have an 89 Civic Hatchback
i'm a clean, stock, simple and done right type of person
i don't want something "cheezed" but i would like to have the ablility to use fog lights. tho i also want to keep the stock look of the 88-91 series hatchbacks

any ideas.
i want to stay as far away from cutting holes, or using a CRX bumper if possible.

Most people use 88-91 prelude fogs.

If you want to stray from factory fogs, these are badass: PIAA

They fit just about anywhere, superior quality, wiring harness is per-assembled making install super easy, and they work really well. I used to sell them back in the day, everybody I got feedback from loved them. Not "cheap", but well worth the investment. I recommend the ion crystal fogs...they look and work really good.

ive tried 2 sets of those and they sucked royal ass. I would never recommend them for anyone from my experience with them.

Sorry to hear that...although I stand by them. Not knock-offs, real PIAA's, they work well. For fogs though, where you want a wide short beam, these do a good job of putting light around the front of the car. I think the "driving" version is pretty much useless, they will "enhance" your headlights and that's about it, no real gains. The fogs do what they are supposed to do, well...

Unless you want it to look ghetto yes you do have to cut the bumper. Look for a set of 89-91 prelude fogs remove your bumper and there will be impressions that you will use to guide your cutting. Follow the lines but make them a little smaller than the lines in order to insure a tight fit for the fogs. Prelude fogs are the same shape as sir oem fogs just a Little smaller. You just have to get creative aith mounting brackets. I have them on my car have any questions feel free to ask.

it's the blue color factory ... just really want an off the wall, stand out, color.
favorite color is orange but i dont want to take away the originality of the car =/
