Roof Mounted 3rd Brake Light, aftermarket fogs, questions ..

Hey guys, A couple of questions!

Firstly:
I purchased these - 2011 2014 Chevy Cruze Chrome Front Bumper Driving Fog Lights Lamp Harness Switch | eBay
They look (nearly) stock, but have their own little switch. If I get ahold of the OEM switch how hard would one think it would be to wire these in? I just couldn't pass the price up.

Secondly:
I want to purchase this - Glass Wing Rear Roof LED Spoiler Black chevy cruze | eBay
Does anybody have any experience with this roof spoiler/brakelight?

Also:
I cannot seem to find the overlay for the third brake light that makes it say CRUZE when I hit the brakes and have been looking for this for some time.
I also am not sure on options for removing the d!ck whip and putting a sharkfin. I have seen one brand that is used by alot of cruzetalk members - are there cheaper alternatives?

The stock button is just a push button that connects to the BCM. The BCM commands a relay that runs the fogs.

How easy depends on if the programming is in your BCM and if the wires are all there. I think there's other threads about adding fogs, so I think it's do-able, but might take a trip to the dealer.

First off: You get what you pay for!

I hope you resealed those fog lights, they are notorious for letting water in. As for the switch, you need to remove the fuse box and place the wire in the proper location for the switch to work. depending on your car model, you might need chevy to flash it.

For the roof light, yes this looks cool but I would be worried about water leaking into the seals or possible the car fabric.

For the shark fin, I would buy the BNR one, comes painted and they use 3M. This puppy is not going anywhere in a car wash.

Oh I understand I get what I pay for, but I also get what I can afford and there is only so much I can afford on 11/hr at the moment .. lol

I have not received the fog lights yet. How would I go about resealing them? ... or just silicone the seams?
As for the switch, I will just stick with the one supplied and mount it somewhere, no big deal .. was just wondering.

I had thought about that, But there are ways to seal such small holes; I was just wondering if anybody on here has it..

I looked up the BNR, I am going to have to save some money..
All this is assuming that your BCM can support OEM fog lights. A dealer will charge you ~$100 to re-flash.
The OEM switch can be re-purposed to toggle the bcm (link). This is cheap and easy. I used a passenger door wiring harness that had been cut after an accident to connect to the factory fuse box. Soldered that to the signal wire on my fogs and it worked like a charm.

Thank you sir! When I get a moment at work I will be looking at those links!
