Want New Fog Surrounds - best place to buy them??

My car has around 70K miles on it and has been through some harsh Pacific NW weather. I really want to replace the OEM black plastic piece that goes around the fog lights. The original ones are starting to discolor...
My dealership is quite the drive for me. I was wondering if there is a good place on-line where I could order these up easily. I did a google search and I'm having a heck of a time finding this part. Thanks.

Can't clean them up with a good scrubbing and some armor-all? They are unpainted black plastic. Maybe use some headlight restoration plastic polish? Just a couple ideas...

if you go down the restoration route, id recommend the BacktoBlack product, which is specifically for black trim pieces. Works very well, and is an easy application - however if your housing is dented or has micro abrasions from front impacts, then perhaps you may indeed want to replace them.

They're pretty peppered from daily driving... Luckilly my bumper is ok since I have a clearbra. The fog surrounds feel like incredibly rough sandpaper. I'll be replacing them. Thanks for everyones input.

consider 3m carbon fiber vinyl... I saw one at bimmerfest and unless you look really close looks like real CF... even had a mild texture to it...

and in a year or so when the viny gets damaged... replace again...

shold be easy to apply as well...
