    the blues have nothing to do with blinding drives, one is a color the other is bad aiming. most ppl that put them on either don't aim them, or they are not designed to cut off at the trunk lids like all 98+ vehicals have.

    only problem with after markets they might still be color different depending on the companies design them, 4300K might be closer but it depends on how they were made by the company you by from. best bet is to replace the mains and fogs with the same company bulbs to get the best match.

    Has anyone replaced the fog lights (the lights below the amber parking lights) with something different than OEM. The left side bulb blew out and I'm thinking about upgrading both to something brighter.

    Is this a bad idea?

    Yea. A bunch of members have done HIDs and some have done Silverstars or some other type of premium halogen bulbs. Try searching. You will be able to find quite a few threads.

    Resurrecting an old thread for a couple questions. In the original post it says H3-55W for our fogs, when ordering HIDs will the 55w be too hot for such a small space? I'm planning on changing headlights soon should I get fogs as well since I will already have the bumper off or are the fogs easy to access with the bumper on?

    For the Fogs, 55W is NOT too much for them, That is a factory size.
    OOPS, You were asking about HID's 55 W, Sorry !
    I am contemplating 100 W, NOw I am worried !
    Good Luck !

    Yeah, I don't want to end up melting the housing because they're too hot. Maybe I'll stick with 35w 6k bulbs for the fogs just to be safe.

    To answer; you can do the fogs without bumper facia removal, its pretty easy.
    And, just for the record, THAT IS NOT the Complete or Correct bulb guide, its way off!!!

    Thanks for the reply Deuce. Now Im kinda worried about ordering bulb types now, I have an 07 sts-v. Maybe I'll research bulb types a little further before committing to a purchase.

    I'd stick with the OEM bulbs. LED's may flicker when dimming.

    I'm looking to replace with HID kits not LED, my little parking bulb went out I figure if I'm gonna dismantle the front of the car, might as well change all of them now.
