Unhappy Cracked left foglight lens (07 TL-S)

Hi everyone,

So, the car in front of me kicked up a rock which cracked, well more like shattered, my left foglight lense. I went to acura to get it replaced, but they only provide the complete left assembly which would be over $300 with parts and installation. I contacted Acura to see if i could get some info on the distributors of their foglights so i could see if i could buy a replacement lense that way, but they apparently do not provide the contact information of their distributors.

I was wondering, does anyone know where I can purchase a lense to replace my with, or how i can go about fixing this problem? Im not much of a DIY person, but if it means saving 200 bucks, Ill definitely do it.

Thanks for the help.

Thanks a bunch, TL-Super. Those definitely seem like better options then shelling out the money for the factory one

My pleasure sir. When I bought my car the dealer was kind of whining that he had to replace one foglight on mine for the safety and it " cost " him over $300. I thought I should say there is that "Interweb thingie" to look for better pricing but thought WTH.
