Just like orangecamaro12 said.
You need: fog light bezels (~20), LED bulbs 5202(?) (~60), lamp housing ($30), some wires and tools, and little electrical knowledge. You can either get the power from the sidemarkers or blinkers, or use a relay to get clean power from the battery. To access the foglights you will need remove some screws on the wheel well (plastic in front of the front tires). Any questions?

I used the sidemarkers with a relay and power from the battery, this way you don't need to purchase LED bulbs which can be expensive. Talk to member 2SSRS to buy the harness that I used, its plug and play, very easy. I got lamps from ebay ( look for tahoe /avalanche ones that fit Camaro they are cheaper, and bezels from amazon.

Does anyone have some links to send? I am in the same boat. New 2013 black LS and want to remove those stupid plastic caps and make fog lights usable.

What would be the switch for the fog lights?

when the sidemarkers are on the fog lights are on, so on at night or if you turn the headlight switch to the sidemarkers they will go on.

Had some time to get links:

Thank you for the response and the links!

So I need to get the harnass as well? Those fog lights look pretty large, but it does say that they will fit. Have you got these on yours?

No, that's not the harness you need. PM 2SSRS. He's the owner of the site and can build you any harness you want. Just tell him what you need it for and he can do it for you.

You can find 5202 LED bulbs that are 8k or close to it i believe they would fit, but dont quote me. The lamps come with halogen bulbs.

great info guys ive been lookin for this too... just one question... is there a big gap in quality/reliability/etc from getting these parts separately as to buying the actual kit? ive seen it on different sites but it can run up to like $300.. major differences anyone?

None. I bought wal-mart housings, the bezels from gmpartshouse, and some led bulbs from ebay for a grand total of 40 dollars for everything and they are still going strong 2 years later
