Default Can You Install 'Fog Lights' On A Camry LE 2007?

Was told that if the car doesn't already have the lights installed, one
can not install them later....is this true?

Thank you

I guess it depends on your state's laws,..but why they would ban properly
aligned (not pointing into the eyes of an oncoming driver) fog-lamps, or
mounted on a roof-rack :-) I dont know.

There's no technical or electrical reason, a long as they are
fuse-protected. Some state's require some additional lights to be switched
thru the vehicle's high-beam circuitry (on or off)

Personally, I haven't experienced any additional help from fog-lamps. Maybe,
other cars may see you better in fog tho.

I'm sure it's not LITERALLY true; I can't see why you couldn't bolt fog
lights onto anything, one way or the other.

However, depending on who was telling you (dealer?) it may not be
esthetically or financially practical. The XLE comes with factory fog
lights; if the situation is the same as with my '97, duplicating that
setup on another variant would require replacing the entire front
fascia, plus buying the lights, brackets, switch, etc. as service parts
- an expensive proposition.

If NOT duplicating the factory setup, the front design doesn't really
allow a lot of good looking or practical locations.

It can be done -- the OEM wiring may not be inplace for a quick install
though.
