I have been searching for fog light delete kit for my 2012 MR with no success.
Please help me find a factory look, not the fancy carbon fiber stuff. A while back, I read about an RS fog light delete kit or something. I am looking for vendors that sell them. My transmission heats up in summer stop and go traffic in Seattle. Thank you in advance.

I live in Seattle, drive in traffic and occasionally race my car during summer time. I have only once in 5 years seen the overheat tranny and that was at the drag strip launching the car. Something doesn’t sound right if it’s overheating in traffic. Have you done the transmission fluid change?

Fog light delete

I had the tranny fluid changed about 3 years ago, about 25K miles. I only started experiencing the tranny jerks in first gear while accelerating gently in stop and go traffic this past "hot" summer. The car shifts normally in other gears though. If traffic continually moving passed first gear for more than a minute, I think there's enough air to cool the tranny and will not jerk when traffic stop again. That is why I am looking for fog light delete kit, with a puller fan installed behind the cooler I think it will fix this issue. Thank you all for responding to me and your suggestions. I will get the tranny fluid changed this spring or before it gets warmer here in Seattle. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!

Do I need hardware to install this kit or can I reuse the hardware in the car? I am leaning toward these low prices at amayama, even though may take 2 months to get delivered.

If you go through the checkout, let me know what the grand total is with shipping from Japan. So far the works kit is 160 plus shipping which puts it close to 200 once all said and done.

I'm wondering if the fog light delete kit is really that important for an occasional autocross and 2-3 track days a year car? I know the SST cooler will appreciate it, but I just got the SSP Titan cooler so don't know.

I do like the look of the fog lights (although my left side is still off since I removed it on track cooking my clutches the first time I went lol)

On track, removing the fogs and installing this RS fog delete kit did ZERO for my oil temps on my GSR at approx 520whp track setting.

You have something else going on with your SST. I've NEVER had any overheating issues in Tucson (Arizona) summers (which is at least 25 deg F higher than Seattle).

Potential slipping - not enough clamping force?
