Alternate fog light choices for turbo bumper?

My driver's side fog light fell out while driving (worn mounting holes) and the glass shattered.

With the limited number of OEM fog lights for sale and the aftermarket (Spec-D Tuning) models being discontinued, I was wondering if anybody knows of any fog light alternatives for the turbo bumper.

Are there any fog lights that fit the unique cutout shape in the bumper AND actually look decent? Has anyone ever had their fog lights reglassed/relensed.

I appreciate the responses, thank you.

Not sure if this is known to you, but there's been some Chinese cheapies on eBay for a few years, they are almost exact replicas. The fog glass isn't as thick & cracks easily and you'll need to modify the Toyota Echo style wiring harness, but they do work and look like OEM.

Those Chinese copies went the way of the Kouki tail lights - right now they're priced at about $1,000 on eBay

They were selling for $75-$125 until someone bought a pair for $350. Now the guy jacked them up to $1000 and won't respond to messages. Good guy.

I'm really looking for something aftermarket that maybe has a decent shape to fit the stock location.

The exact same item is going for about $84 at CarId; I have to say that they're just barely worth it even at that price.

I just hope the led bulbs I bought work. My fogs are in okay condition, but where I live, I need more brightness or lumens or whatever.

These are out of stock on all websites (including CarID) and supposedly discontinued from the original manufacturer SpecD tuning.

This is most unfortunate. I've been looking for a good condition drivers' side fog light for my 93HT for over a year. When I finally decide to settle for a SpecD light, that isn't available either.

Protect your fog lights, folks. PPF that stuff. I went through a few 5-10 years ago with stone chips cracking the glass.
