Aftermarket will be dismal quality compared to OEM.
Provided the dealer-sold lamps are actually FACTORY and not just some
dealer-sold aftermarket puffery, it's worth the extra cost to use OEM.
However, many dealers sell aftermarket accessories. Doesn't make them any
better quality. Ask your dealer for the official *Honda* part number of
their fog lamps. Report that here.
By the way, genuine Honda OEM part numbers will be in this format:
where the first five positions are numbers, the next three will be two
letters and a number (or 3 letters), and the final three are usually
three numbers, or one letter and two numbers.
I installed a set of factory lights in my '05 RSX and while it took some time,
the kit was absolutely complete down to the necessary cable ties. I can't
imagine a clone having the wiring harnesses that the Acura kit had. I bought
my kit from here:
for, as you say, around $280. The lights are very nice and can be aimed
properly with an adjustment screw so they act as proper FOG lamps and not lame
driving lights to blind oncoming drivers!
