Question Fog Lamp Upgrade - 2008 X

Just got a 2008 X without fog lamps and I need fog lamps here on Oregon coast. Looking at car indicates that the wiring seems to be in place for lamps - there is a plug on a harness in the right side - haven't seen it on the left. There is a fuse marked Fog Lamps in the fuse box in engine compartment. We can't find a relay marked fog lamps.

Based on this, is car wired for factory Fog Lamps? There seems to be some confusion about whether all 2008 models are wired. Are there other things to check to make sure it's wired?

Anything else I'm missing?
Thanks,
ww

They should be wired - if you go OEM, you replace the turn stalk (has the fog switch in it) and the fogs/mounts. Everything wires up into the stock harness at that point. A little thread searching should find you plenty of How-to's on the forums.

Thanks, Dustin. I'll let my installer know.
Our biggest issue was not finding the relay, but I guess that will just remain a mystery. The kits don't contain it.
