USDM s14 kouki foglight VS. JDM s14 kouki foglight

Are the JDM and USDM S14 Kouki Foglights the same? Does the JDM front Bumper come with those black covers around the foglights? if not, where can they be sourced?

Not the same?? They are IDENTICAL, I have them both. Only difference is the metal bracket they mount to the bumper with. The actual fog light is the same, but you'll never find just the bracket (or black surrounds) which is why you'll end up having to buy the whole foglight assembly anyway. Too bad some of these importers wouldn't just grab the bracket and save people a lot of money, but then again they wouldn't be making any money, unless they charged like 50$ for that piece of metal....

Don't forget the bolts on the bottom...they are not the same.

Yes you can, very easily.

EDIT: But you would still need the black surround pieces or else it would look like crap.

Funny you ask that....because that's exactly what I did. I took the projectors from zenki foglights and put them into the kouki housing....








As for the JDM foglights that I have...I'm just going to use some amber HELLA bulbs.

how hard was the retrofit, any cutting/retooling required, or mainly just a simple bolt on and some trimming?

What size bulb is a zenki fog? I kno a kouki is an h3

i've taken apart zenki projectors, and I used to have kouki fogs, I imagine it would take a lot of cutting and some basic fabrication.

Because you?d be surprised how many Ghosts, answer. Thats how I got my Kouki foglights for $100 and my 98 real Kouki with 32?000 miles on the motor and chassis for less than 8k. Sorry my turning over stones, offended your delicates sensibilities on internet decorum on necroposting.
As I have met my objective from other sources. I?ll make sure to avoid your vaunted halls 🤝
