A little update in my search. I found this ebay seller that has a whole kit including wiring. I believe the 2013 focus fogs are the same as the 2011's. Correct me if Im wrong here.

I realize its a different body style but I dont believe ford changed the fog light design. I know it will need manually wired and i will have to add a aftermarket foglight switch but if you look on car-part.com etc. It is telling me the fog light housings for the older body style are exactly the same as the fogs installed on the 2012-2013 body style. They are also the same fog lights that come with the V6 mustang pony package. Im just looking for someone who has their bezels off to paint them to confirm this. Im gonna crawl under mine and see what mounting holes are under there tomorrow.

Oh, yeah ive found that too. Ford used them in a lot of vehicles in the past 10+ years. Let me know what u find. Cause what i found online was u had to buy a mounting bracket for the 12+ model.

Can u post a link of the mount? I dont like the button switch in that kit but the rest looks ok. The mount may throw a wrench in the project

Heres pics from the backside of the bumper. Looks like they just bolt up with 2 bolts and they sit on 2 pins.

A little update. I just purchased these off Ebay. 2 for 55 bucks. Plus they are FORD OEM fog lights, not junk. It looks like they come with H8 bulbs which kinda suck, but Im planning on replacing them with H11's or even H9's. Im going to order a set of ceramic H9 sockets when these arrive. The H9 sockets will accept H8, H9, and H11 bulbs. Then I plan on wiring these up like any set of aftermarket fog lights, with a relay, and add a switch under the dash somewhere out of sight. Im planning on modifying the black delete bezels on the car to open them up for the fog lights. Probably with the dremel and a heat gun. If it looks like crap, Ill just buy a set of bezels.

Got the foglights. They are indeed valeo housings with what feels like heavy glass lenses. Good buyer for anyone looking for foglights. Ill make sure they fit tomorrow but im sure they will. They did come with H8 bulbs but after their wired i plan upgrading to H11

What kind of aftermarket kit are you using to wire them? I'm looking at adding some to my s model but I need to know what will fit and how I can easily wire it because its a nightmare making them work with factory functionality.
