Fog Light Help?

ok so i have a 2007 cobalt lt coupe. and im wanting to put fog lights in. ive been reading and seen somewhere, there are "female" connections somewhere behind the front bumper but not sure exactly. also the front bumper i have on there now does not have holes cus out in the bottom grille inserts. i found inserts with the holes cut out for fog lights on ebay and wonder if that will work. if not. do i need to buy a new bumper? also would a cobalt ss spoiler fit (the bigger sportier spoiler) my cobalt or will i need to drill new holes? ive had a cobalt for awhile now and starting to put a little style into it so plz and thx if u have any answers

If you have a low-rise spolier the high rise will bolt on and you will not have to drill new holes.

For your bumper since you dont have foglights, you will need to purchase either the SS bumper or the bumper that has foglights for base models. You can swap the inserts if you have the removable ones but the bumper itself will not have the mounting brackets which is the dumb on GMs part. We sell a complete kit which is OEM foglights and a harness that plugs into your fuse bo. Harness is Plug-N-Play and allows the fogs to turn on with your car and off with your car. We can also add a HID to that combo as well. PM me if your interested

You can just buy the inserts.

Who ever said that didn't realise what bumper you had thats all.

*facepalm*

you will not be able to MOUNT your foglights to your bumper. They DO NOT mount to those inserts. They mount to your bumper itself which you will NEED the upgraded base bumper or the SS bumper. Now if your car was in a accident and they replaced the bumper and stiffed you with non fog inserts then your good. Do I know that? no im giving you correct info to save yourself a headache if your car came from the factory without foglights.

I DO know what im talking about..ive owned a 2005 LS which had the inserts..
