    Standard wedge bulb, you can order from the same place mentioned earlier in this thread. I ordered all of my bulbs there, wedge, fog, etc. Good luck.

    Just did my fog light update Hoen Xenomatch - huge difference.

    Other Mods:
    Already have the windows tinted, upgrading interior and license plate to LED, getting the chrome grille update. Future mods: a D3 intake, painted-to-match rear difuser, and side marker turn signal mirrors (in the glass).

    Wow! Wouldn't mind that myself but looks like a huge installation job - did you do it yourself?

    This project is on the "to do" list. YES it looks like a bit of a pain but because I so LOVE the side markers for safety I think its 100% necessary, especially as I deal with S.FL drivers all the time

    I had a couple of PM's on this post.

    To clarify, in the picture I posted:
    -The driver side bulb (right side of the picture) is the factory/OEM bulb.

    -The passanger side bulb (left side of the picture) is the Hoen Xenomatch

    I think the picture does a nice job of showing the difference, you can look at the ground and see the driver side reflection is yellow while the passanger side reflection is white.

    Question Update wanted ...Hoen xenonmatch superwhite fogs

    Hey RAB ... It's been 2-1/2 years since you installed the Hoen fogs. Do you still have the same CTS? If so, how long did the Hoens last? Thanks in advance.

    Re: Replaced OEM fog lamp bulbs with Hoen xenonmatch superwhite bulbs

    I think I know the answer but I have to ask anyway. I changed fog lamps to a super white H11. Only trouble it came in at 100w's It looks great but heat is a concern. Before I use them for any length of time, Is this going to be a problem? To RAB, The change over you posted was easy and I thank you for the guidence. Just don't want to have melted lenses or worse. Thanks.
