Super, Is that price for the dimmer by itself, or do you have to buy the whole pod assembly which includes the twilight sentinel & fog light sw.?

I beleive that the price is for the switch controls (dimmer,fog, delay) only. at least thats what it said on gmpd. i wish the bulbs were REPLACEABLE! Stupid switch designer.
