Dear all,
In Canada, even we purchased the XLE premium version, we still got two ugly plastic covers in the front bumper:crying::crying::crying:. It was killing me to see that:crying:. So, every day I saw that reminded me to replace it with two shiny OEM fog lights.

You could buy the fog light kit from eBay. Here is the link:wink2::https://www.ebay.com/itm/2018-TOYOTA-C-HR-GENUINE-OEM-FOG-LIGHT-KIT-PT413-1C160/262960680320?epid=762304499&hash=item3d39ad8d80:g:iyMAAOSw42dZBjA1&vxp=mtr

And most of the seller on eBay won't attached the installation instruction. So let me paste it here in case you are going to install it by yourself. It was super EASY!!!:wink2:
Here is the link to installation instruction:

P.S. Don't trust the instruction 100%>:)>:), remove the front bumper will make your job smoothly.

I could have done without the folding mirrors, but I def had to have the fog lights and push button start. Its too bad that your premium model does not come with fog lights. That makes no sense why they would leave off other than to keep the cost down.

Tell me about it and features like that are just about the cheapest you can do. I think its more to let people see the value in high trims. The more they take away from lower trims the more they can give to higher ones.

I replaced mine with H 11 Heise brand LED lightbulbs but a 15 minute swap made a huge difference. We sell them for $100 a pair

So called Toyota dealer near my job they want $260 to install the fog lights they say it's a two hour job at $130 a hour but honestly I would rather have a certified Toyota person do the job and have it covered under warranty than take my risks. Still gonna quote a few other dealers nearby and see what they say.

Cant believe how many things Toyota skimmed out on for North American customers. If its only costing a couple hundred bucks to install after the fact, it should have just come that way from factory. I'm assuming that price at the dealership doesn't include parts?

Late to the game on the response here, but I got a quote from my dealership today (Wesley Chapel Toyota) for installation of the OEM fogs. $580. If I wanted to buy the OEM set from them and install myself, that's $259.

I found a set on Amazon for $50, and it looks like an exact fit for the mounting brackets. Comes with relay and switch too. I'll probably order it and put some time aside on a weekend to do it myself. It isn't OEM, but $50 sure as **** beats almost $600. Link below.

I got mine on ebay and finish install it without much stress and money. The real problem i got was how to remove the front bumper which no one done a video on youtube and i cant lift my car up to access the foglight erea light the manual show. But removing the bumper turn out alot easier to work the fog lights.
i also changed mine to led so it much brighter compared to halogen (just need to aim the light lower to not blinding others)
As for wiring, i dont need to A switch for it so i just use the head light as switch to power on the after market relay and fog lights come on the same time with head light.
The total for led fog light came around 75-90 usd and took me 3h( 2h to remove the bumber and put it back) but now when i know how to, it roughly 1h to do (no cabin switch) installation job.

I figure I'd just add to this thread as it'll be cleaner for those doing searches.

So I installed the new OE LED fog lights on my CHR. These are the Toyota part numbers: PT413-42190 (LED fog lights/chrome bezel) and PT413-1C191 (mounting hardware and electrical). The install instructions provided by the OP of this thread for download are the instructions you want for this. I looked at the other instructions floating on the Internet hosted by the UK C-HR forum and those instructions are not the correct ones. So I thank the OP immensely for sharing the correct instructions as I wouldn't have been able to do any of the wiring without those instructions.

I did the install without pulling down the bumper cover. I don't know if doing it this way was easier or pulling the bumper cover would have ended up being easier. I'm glad I didn't have to pull the bumper cover but if I knew I had to go back in there again, I would reconsider this approach. It was a royal pain in the butt. Most of the work was done by feel and blindly working in the small space. The worst part was the passenger side as the wiper fluid bottle is right there. So what limited space there was on the driver's side was even more limited on the passenger side. Thankfully, I had an assortment of different length phillips head screw drivers. Ended up needing a stubby screw driver for this side. Plus of course, the factory workers decided to tape up the fog light harness high up on the frame/mounting point for the front bumper. Because I couldn't effectively get a utility knife in there to cut the tape or a set of cutters, I had to twist the tape and pull on the harness to get the tape to stretch enough to pull the harness out or to tear it off.

The interior panels were suprisingly easy to pull off. I didn't use any plastic trim tools. Just my fingers. The instructions were not very clear on accessing where you needed to install the relay. But the area you need access to is right behind and above where the USB/Aux port is in the dash. So you have to pull down the glove box and then remove the entire mid portion of the dash to get access to that area.

One other thing of note and I'm not sure if those that have installed the OE kit have this behavior. The on/off switch for the fog lights don't light up when the dash/gauge lights up when the headlights come on. The switch for the fog lights only illuminate when you turn on the fog lights. The illumination of the switch is yellow/orangish in color.

I'm attaching some pictures of the install and the finished product.
