Love it! Thank you for posting I have a white EX as well and wanted to do both of those maybe the parking sensors too. Looks great!!
yeah it does look a lot better with the fogs!

Did you install the fogs lights yourself or dealer? What was the cost if dealer installed?
I had a shop install it for me, not the dealer. I knew the guy so I got a discount, but it took around 2-3 hours max so depending on your rate that's what you will get charged for.

are fog lights hard to install? I was disappointed my EX didn't have them.
Unfortunately, only the Insight Touring trim has the fog lights standard. College Hills Honda is a good resource for PDF versions of installation instructions.

- Part number for the EX/Touring fog lights is 08V31-TXM-100B - https://www.collegehillshonda.com/product/08V31-TXM.html
- Fog Light installation instructions - https://www.collegehillshonda.com/instructions/insight/2019/ledfoglights.pdf

Also some perspective from @PHILBERT on cost of dealer-installed fog lights on an EX - https://www.gen3insight.com/forum/9244-post7.html

Nice job! How long did it take to install? PHILBERT previously mentioned the dealer-install of the fog lights onto an EX ran $320, which is about 2.5 hours worth of labor - www.gen3insight.com/threads/show-off-your-car.2038/#post-9244

Are these the parts you installed and instructions used?
Interestingly, the College Hills Honda parts site lists a different part number (08V31-TXM-100A) for the LX trim (versus EX/Touring part number above). There must be something different about the install, since Honda created a separate OEM part for it (?).

Fairly involved, the worst part was the instructions pics are real clear. Ft. Bumper was the worst! You will need a helper for it. And you will need a tool for all the clips.

Took me about 3 1/2 hours in my garage.

Next project, aftermarket foglights! About $150 on ebay...looks just like OEM...comes with own wire harness and switch. May actually be easier install than Honda ones. Just gotta figure out how to get through firewall...

Oh cool. Really $150 only? Also what firewall?

Btw, did you do any drilling/screwing for your spoiler? Or did you just 3m it?

Spoiler was a Honda accessory. I let dealer do the drilling. There's a dealer site called College Park Honda that puts installation pdf's on their site that shows how any available Insight accessory is installed. Firewall is between engine bay and passenger compartment. May already have a pass thru plug somewhere. Search Insight Foglight on ebay and you'll find several aftermarket fogs. May not be as high quality as actual Honda part though. Have to remove bumper too....ugh..

I Referenced wrong dealer for install instructions. It's College Hills Honda (not Park). They post actual Honda pdf instructions for all Insight accessories..very informative...

How much does it cost if I would like to get both fog lights and parking sensors installed through a dealer on 2021 EX. If any one had done please share the cost and experience.

Welcome to the forum. Regarding dealer-installed fog lights onto an EX, @PHILBERT shared installation pricing and usage experience. Short summary is $500 for parts and $817 with labor. Estimating ~$140/hr for Honda labor, that works out to ~2 hr 15 min install.

Parking sensors are more pricy due to labor (4+ hours). The best total dealer-installed prices mentioned are in the ~$1000-$1200 range, including @hvysnw's mention of $1200 for parts and labor. There's a separate thread on parking sensors that includes user experience and time-lapse video of @AMCooper63's self-installation, if you opt for DIY route instead.

Sure, this helps me to get an idea. Thank You!
