Something like this ^ will get you everything you need other than the covers and switch. It comes with a switch, as you can see, but no covers are included. Buy this and find some covers and it shouldn't run you much more than $100. If you wanted to use the OEM switch, keep your eye on ebay. I've seen a couple OEM switches for cheap. I got mine for $10.

Justinr666 Could always wire them right into the low/ high beam wires... Like i did for my led lights... That way they turn on with the head lights and turn off with them too all with out having to wire up an extra switch.

Touché, that is if you wire it up that way. If I am understanding you wire it into the ignition circuit with a relay so when the car turns on so do the fogs? Kind of like DRL?

The only aux switch I have personally seen has been an actual button that is mounted to the dash.

Just sayin...

Far as I can tell the kits are still being made and shouldn't be too hard to find, it's just a cost thing at this point.
Hmmm $80 total for the same fog lights just to an aux switch... or $250ish and they can only be on when your low beams are on? haha

No problem Dude! I remember when I first started modding mine and didn't even know where to begin. I have done a lot of experimenting with my car and tried a lot of different things so feel free to ask me anything you encounter along the way. Also I run hids in my fogs. I have thought about going with a whiter light vs my yellow hids but I feel like the yellow is much better in fog and such. Here is a shot with just my fog lights on(=
