Will 2011 2.5 fogs fit the 2.0 bumper?

I am looking into buying fogs and i find them on ebay but only for the 2.5 and im not sure if there is a difference in the bumper because i am not spending 378 for fogs from the dealer also if anyone has some for sale on here let me know?

The 2.5 and 2.0 have the same bumper, make sure they are for the correct year and you have the inserts.

If you have these inserts (left and right side of the grille), you need new inserts and probably wiring etc. Also you will need a way of turning them on/off.

If you have these inserts, you can just get the assemblies.

The connections for the fogs are already there it came like that so I'm assuming all I need to do is get the housings to replace the inserts

the inserts just push out so you just need to get the fog lamp kit from the dealer or wherever and you should be good to go.. oh and you'd need a new turn signal stalk for the fog light switch.

The car is already wired for fogs all i need to know is if the 2.5 from bumper is the same as the 2.0 so if i buy fogs from ebay that say they are for the 2.5 will they fit the 2.0 bumper are the bumpers the same?

bumper should be the same between 2.0 and 2.5, the only one that is different is the speed3 bumper which uses a different grille and fogs.

I just did a foglight install the other weekend on my 2010 Mazda (pretty much the same as 2011 I believe). Wasn't hard at all. Have to remove the bumper and then you can remove a few screws to pop the inserts out, then the fog lights screw back in there (you need the little grey trim pieces you see in the picture above as well). The wiring is already there, but you need a wiring harness to connect to the plug that is there and run it to both lights. Also you need the turn signal stalk. If you are going to install fog lights, I recommend getting the Mazda foglights (not 3rd party). They come with everything you need in a box and detailed instructions. Got mine from Mazda-parts.com for cheaper than the local dealer was charging. Good luck!

Mazmart also sells OEM parts for cheaper. Great people work there. I've been over there a few times. Quality group of people.
