You can use 9005's, I found that you have to do some trimming of the one tabs to get them to fit correctly, some 9005's fit, but I know to get them to fit in my truck both PIAA and Sylvania's needed to be trimmed.

Most H10's fit no problem, the problem is some of the overseas bulbs that say H10, are just repackaged 9005's

nofinga911 you can get the 9005s and have a very tiny trimming on the right lower ear, so it is not a big deal. I trimmed and mounted mine like in 5 minutes .
get the Sylvania SilverStar , they are good. But don't expect them to be like the HIDs, they still have a very slight yellowish light, but during the day they are white.

what gets trimmed...the base of the bulb? or on the car itself?

the base of the bulb has like three edges, one on the top and two at the sides, if you hold the bulb towards you it will be the right edge which you have to trim it like half of it from the lower side. once you take your Fog bulb out , you can compare them together to determine which edge and how much to trim.

That is correct, just hold up one of the 9145's you are taking out.
