Any have any suggestions on replacing a fog light on 2014-2015 SX?

Woke up yesterday to finding glass in front of my car, mind you it was parked in my garage. Looks like the glass broke out and dropped to the floor... then broke. It literally broke in an almost perfect circle around the light. I called the dealer about trying to warranty it and of course they say the only way that could happen is by being hit by a rock. I really can't prove it wasn't but it sure looks more like the glass got to hot and stress cracked by cooling. Whatever... they say a whole assembly would cost $350 to replace.

Anyone found anything cheaper? Problem is when I look up what I think is the replacement number I get to results. I'm not sure what to trust. Here is links to the two results:

FOG LAMP ASSY | Genuine Kia | 92201-A7050

FOG LAMP ASSY for 2014 Kia Forte|92201-A7050

Does anyone know of or replaced yours with anything aftermarket. I love our factory ones but I might not be opposed to changing them out if there is something out there that looks as good, works better or is less pricey, especially if this could happen again.

Thanks in advance.

So the second link you have is for a 2014 LX not SX. Notice the shape of the light itself. You would want to take the part number from the first and run it by the kia dealer to be safe but it looks like the right one and you will save $100 in labor doing it yourself

Just realized I have never updated this.

KIA was actually awesome about all this, they warrantied it. I took the glass in when I reported what happened. They of coarse blamed a rock chip first. After I put the glass together in front of them they said they'd see what they could do, without admitting there was not an obvious chip in it. Got a call about 15 minutes after I left and said they'd have a new on e in 2 days. Problem solved.

I have no clue if they will replace it again a 2nd time if it happens but they stood behind the warranty this time.
