The little white driving lights

So, my basic Sport model didn't come with the little white driving lights in the front air dam (2017 CX-5).

Anyone happen to know how much it would be for a dealer to install a set (cost of parts included). Do we have any Mazda techs here?
 
Solution
i'd suggest the aftermarket route like:

or

Thank you, I have looked at those, that is probably the route I will take.

Looks like the poster Ranman57 is in the US as his car is a '20 CX-5 GT PP AWD. That’s why I was wondering ⋯

it never amazes me how companies here try to skim on small things just to save few hunderd bucks here and there
You noticed that too ⋯

Although Mazda has added some missing features in recent US model years for CX-5 which were available on other markets, such as open / close center vents and one-touch power window on all 4 doors, we still have something missing even on the top-of-line CX-5 Signature such as backup camera with trajectory lines.

Not to mention effective lane centering, available in other markets, the lack of which has me looking elsewhere for my next ride.

Some of the fog light utility is handicapped by DOT. In Europe fog lights could be used with just the parking lights (no longer allowed there either, at least in Germany). If it was really heavy fog, the light coming from that low gave better visibility than using headlights. My old 911 is wired that way.

But I agree the fogs on the CX-5 are not much use. I'm tall and I can see the difference in lighting immediately in front of the car when the fogs are on, but that's not where your eyes should be looking anyway. I use them in bad weather to make my car more visible to other drivers, not to improve my vision.

Actually my 2021 CX5 Signature does have moving trajectory lines on both the front and rear cameras, plus significantly higher resolution images. As to the LED fog lights, mine came from the factory essentially pointing down at the ground illuminating out to about 10’ in front of the bumper. I could not see them from the drivers seat over the hood. Once I adjusted them correctly and applied an Amber lens coating, they are at least somewhat useful.

They're basically like landing lights on a plane. Don't really help you see, they just help you be seen. That being said, I do kind of like them.
