Lightbulb PT Cruiser Fog Light Upgrades for 01-05

Looking for new ideas on fog-lights, my driver side housing just fried over the weekend, and I've been looking on eBay for a new set, but everything is just the same ol' thing..

Just wondering, before I pull the trigger.. if anyone had done anything different/cool lately. Without wire splicing, relays, etc. ?

I'd really like a set of smoke fog-lights..

Anyone..?

Ok thanks fellas. I guess there's really not much aftermarket out there as far as these go.

I'm gonna go with a brand new set, that should be nice enough on its own. Probably upgrade the bulbs to LEDs or such.

Why complicate things?

Sorry nobody has really answered this one. There's custom fog lights for the 1st Gen PT. Here's a link to to some:

I also think it may be possible to adapt these very cool Lexus fog lights with LED's to the 1st Gen PT. But that would involve some make-fit work.

And be sure to check this out:

Plus, here's some fog light reflecting trim about half way down the page. Don't buy this from overseas, but just make your own:

I hope if you install LED bulbs, you're going for looks because they are not nearly as bright as stock bulbs

Not the case anymore, my brother. There are very bright LED's now that fit the 9006 socket in the PT Fog lights. Some have almost twice as many lumens as the original incandescent bulbs.

I thought like the backups that CREWZIN got. That you could buy high powered ones.

Question Re: PT Cruiser Fog Light Upgrades for 01-05

Looking at this video from A1Auto and the way they install the fog-lights seems a little off, wouldn't it be easier to remove the nuts and pull them out the front?
How To Install Repair Replace Fog Light Bulb Chrysler PT Cruiser 01-05 1AAuto.com - YouTube

I need to take the time and read the owners manual. But removing the wheels and liner seems unnecessary.

I think is much easier from the bottom up...
