I don't know how many people have had troubles getting the screw holes to line up right. Or if you get replica fog light covers like I did and the screws being a tad to short. So here is the tip, go to your local auto store and go to the license plate holder section. You should be able to find there some screws that should be the right diameter, and a little longer to make it easy to install. And an even better tip is this.

Find the screwes that use a allen wrench lock. I know some people have had these stolen because all it takes is a flat head screwdriver to get these off. So spend the two dollars and get the lock screws and it will make you life a lot easier.

My dad installed them the first time (since I wasn't home, he likes working on my car). He said he had the same problem the first time but eventually got them in. I think it just depends on where you get them from or how much time you want to spend installing them. If I had the longer screws in the begining it would have taken 5 min to install them.

The screws I got use an allen wrench, but the screws have a steal pin in the middle so you can't use a regular allen wrench. The allen wrench has to have a hole in the middle to fit around the pin in the middle of the screw.

Sorry I don't have the size, I just took the small ones I got with the covers to the store and matched them up there.

I heard that the solid replica covers need the fog lights taken out. I ordered some too from Gruppe-S but its been over a week and a half and they still have not come or responded to my e-mails, not like them at all. I am hoping I can put them on with the brackets that are already on my car from the mesh fog light covers. I will let you know as soon as I get them.
