Default fog lights?

Anyone know where you can get replacement fog lights? The lens is cracked in one of mine and I would rather not go to the dealer. Also, in regards to one of my earlier questions about front cupholders, does anyone else who has a '92 SSEi - console shifter have cupholders of anytype? Aftermarket or generic type that works? And lastly, someone told me that the type of 'semi-clear' tail lenses that I have can be taken out and it'* two-piece that can be 'taken apart' and a red/orange colored plastic 'lens type' sheets can be taken out, then put the two-piece tail lens back together and that'* it - add a red/orange colored bulb and put back on - done. Has anyone else heard of this? Anyone done it or seen it done and have pics? Thanks again guys!

I've got aftermarket cupholders in mine, they look stock and hold a big gulp. If you want a pic, let me know. This gives me the 2 in the doors, two on the console, one in the console, and 2 in the back seat. More than enough.

The taillight lenses can't be done like that.

Yeah, if you had some pics that would be great. Where did you get them and how much $$?

If your 92 with console shifter is anything like mine when I bought it, the cup holder that flips out of the center armrest is partially or completely broken off.

I believe exact match foglamps must be ordered from the dealer. However, there are many aftermarket lamps that will fit with slight modifications.

If you mean aftermarket, you can spend pretty much as much or as little as you'd like.

I got a pair at WalMart that are almost an exact fit (just very slightly smaller than stock) for $40 (give or take a buck for taxes). They are called CyberWhites, and look nice (slight blue tint) and are much brighter than stock.

I've seen the stock replacements for anywhere from about $20 bucks each to over 50. I can't find the exact prices or sites right now (Brain fart)

I'm guessing in the $60-$70 range list each, but GMpartsdirect.com probably has them for less.

The factory console cupholder can be purchased at the dealer for a VERY reasonable price. That'* what I did. There'* even a Techinfo article that covers this broken item, along with others.

My magic book has the cupholder listed as part of the bezel trim around the console, but the dealer can get the cupholder seperately.

Here'* my aftermarket cupholders. I used the gray 3M body/moulding tape to attach them, and they're strong enough for a big gulp. Note that they're actually mounted so the weight of the cup is supported by the 'hump':



And here'* my aftermarket fogs. Cyber whites, $55 a pair:
