Why not just take it out and look? It would have been done by now.

No, there are no pop-in upgrades for the dreaded PSX24W.
...just anticipating your next question.

Cosmetic craptastic kiddy-ride foglights. Buy a set of Cibie Oscars, Hella Micro DE, or Bosch Compact 100 if you really want a set of foglights that work.

Careful about brighter. If they use more current the computer may not allow them to turn on.

You have the older version with 9145 bulbs; twice as bright. With fresh bulbs, yours are a nominal 850 lumens ---- not terrible for foglights.
The new ones are just about cosmetic in their functionality. A joke.

Change 2010+ with 2009-

Can one acquire a set of 2009 and older factory fog lights (housing + Bulbs) and replace the poor ones in a 2010 and newer? Will connectors be the same? is wiring the same for all years?

Or did they change the wiring to match the lower output 2010+ fogs?

Thanks for any help.

Connections aren't the same but an older set can be jiggered in.

It's more cost effective and you'd get better results just mounting a set of Hellas on the bumper though. They work tons better.
