I'm not sure that they had a white to amber "fog light" kit. What you may be referring to is that they used a clear front signal light housing and put a bulb in called a "switchback" that flips from white to amber depending on if it is in parking light mode or signal light mode.

If it is, the clear signal housings have been discontinued and the only place you may be able to find a pair would be here if someone has some that they will let go of.

Be sure these are legal in your state. The clear covers with amber bulbs are, but many states require that the fog light be in a separate housing. The Fiero came with such housings in Europe, for a similar reason.

If BTR can find a different vendor, I hope they go with a 2-bulb solution that has separate housings. I hope the lens is also sealed better to the rest of the housing.

Their current bulb does work, but the amber isn't as bright as the amber-only bumb. This results in the effective light distance being less.

I bought my switchbacks off ebay. From a chinese vendor with a warehouse in California. Bought them for my VIBE (daily) and fiero. Brighter that stock amber and the white is like a dim fog light.
Cost $15 shipped a pair and if they fail they get swapped for free under warranty. Though I haven't needed to.

Just as another option for those looking for a cheaper alternative.

Many new cars have these lights from the factory so it shouldn't be an issue as they are "parking/running" lights and not fog lights. But it's its always good to check your local regulations.

Problem is the clear covers are not longer around.
