Lower Valance Fog Lights for Base v6

I have a base v6 and want to purchase lower valance fogs. But it seems like the least expensive I can find are $499 for the v6. I keep seeing some that are about $130, but they state they are for the GTs only. What is it about these GT fogs that will not work on the v6? I understand that the less expensive ones say you connect the wiring of the fogs to the existing wiring in the GTs, which I am guessing the base does not have. But I saw a review from someone who said that he just connected the wiring to his side marker wiring. Will this work? Any suggestions? I just can't justify spending $499 on fogs if I can do it for about $400 less. Even if they wouldn't work alone, I could purchase the $130 fogs and get the Starkey wiring harness for $180, and still only spend about $310. Unless of course the fogs aren't compatible with the Starkey wiring. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

You know that warm and fuzzy feeling? That means something bad is about to happen...

The V6 models that came with foglights were in the lower bumper where at the GT's did not, they have the fog lights incorporated in the grill. So that may be the price difference and it depends on what you want.

From what I've read on here and researched the GT's and V6's have the same front end so you could put a GT grill and fog lights on a V6 model. Furthermore the wiring harness for either should work and all that is needed is the new headlight switch to include the mode for the fog lights.

Gt fogs in a v6 require cutting and full grill insert with switch/harness

The easiest way to do it is to get the starsky kit. Very well made and requires no cutting. Litterally plug and play. The $130 ford oem kit is for GT models that want the GT/CS look with the lower lights, but already have the existing wire. If you want to save a few bucks you can purchase the starskey wire kit and buy the lower lights and switch through and online ford OEM parts supplier. Saves you a few bucks. Sjper easy to install on a base v6 and looks great. See my pictures on my profile page to see how they look.

Part of that price difference is the switch in the interior. You'll gain the automatic headlight feature from it, though, since the computers and relays for the base model are the same as the premium for a lot of the car.

Thank you! I kinda figured that was the difference.

The switch is a $25 part which I already purchased for my car. So I think the bulk of the price difference is the wiring harness.

The only thing wrong with that kit, though, is that the lamps themselves are standard projector types and not LEDs like in the factory setup. If that matters to you, that is. Otherwise, it's a pretty simple install.
