Default Honda Civic Accesories and options?

My sons girl friend was out with her parents shopping for a car for University. He is telling me that the Honda dealer wants her to pay $650.00 for a set of fog lamps!?! What is with that? How can they charge that much for a $100.00 set of fog lamps? Can someone explain this to me because I just don't get it? In the meantime we are going down to the Auto Parts Store to look at what they have. We are going to install them ourselves if she gets the car. It will be his Xmas present to her.

honda fog lamps are made for the car, using similar design and techniques for construction, built to be covered by the same warranty as the car, and designed to not look added on (the lights themselves and the switch/wiring that operates them)you could just throw some autozone light in the middle of lower grille, screwed to the bumper cover, and run the wires to a toggle switch crammed into a hole in the dash if you like....but it's not going to be the same setup as the factory accessory setup is.part of that $600 is installation (flat rate of 2.5 hourse), so you could buy the honda foglamp kit and install them yourself. the kits list at $325 for the DX/LX/EX, and $332 for the Si kit.
