At the time of this post, it will be very rare, if not impossible to find an 86 with fog lights in the US. Ours may very well be the first 2017 86 in the US with OEM fog lights.
It’s nearly impossible to find them on cars today, because the US market doesn’t get a fog light option. That’s why we put together our own kit using Toyota’s fog light bezels from Japan.
We’re not quite sure why the US missed out on this option, but it wasn’t very difficult to install, since every 86 already comes with the necessary harness to plug into. The most difficult part of the process was splicing in two wires for the ON/OFF switch and drilling a 20mm hole to mount the switch next to the trunk release button. Which was a very simple task and is something you could easily accomplish during your lunch break.
The fog light bezels retain the same aggressive canard design as before, and the lights are LED just like the headlights, so the color temperatures matches perfectly. However if you want to create a distinctive look, you could add Lamin-X covers to tint it Amber, Yellow, Blue, Green, Smoke, and even Pink.
Adding OEM fog lights to an 86 couldn’t be easier and the entire process shouldn’t take more than a couple hours. When it’s all said and done, no one will ever know your car didn’t come like this from the factory. Unless of course they read this post.
