    Somewhere mid 2006, I think it is, Something changed about the but early 006 and older STS-V fog light will bolt right up in place of CTS fog lights on a regular bumper and are clear

    no, you misunderstand, If you can find some lights from a 2006 or older STS-V they will bolt right in to your stock V-6 bumber

    Don't waste your money on OEM parts, you just have to swap the bracket with your stock one. They used to sell em cheaper with the cts bracket...can't seem to find em though.

    i found used sts-v fogs wasnt gonna buy new. But the part # for all pre 06 and after 06 is the same. So i dont wanna risk buying them and not fitting. I was hoping they changed the part# but they didnt which i find odd...
