Default Groton after market fog lamp vs Dealer OEM

Groton has a replacement fog lamp assemply for my 2002 T6 for $71. The dealer wants $156 for the Volvo part. If they look the same and install the same, I would be happy to save the money and use Groton's part. Any input on differences in ease of installation and appearence would be apprecaited.

I wonder if grotton is buyng directly from the manufacturer... Remember, Volvo isn't making those lights. They source those parts from smaller companies to make a car. I would say go with the grotton ones if they are essentially the same!

I have a broken lens on the passenger's side. After shipping and buying a replacement bulb, the dealer is about $30 more than Groton etc.

well if its just one lens, im sure you will pick up a better deal on ebay,
when you say the "Dealer" you mean your dealer or the one I just sent you on ebay?

why not email them and ask speficially for the part you need
