You can get #880 bulbs that are 50 watt, stock is either 27 or 37 watts (I have seen both bulbs in new Escalade's) Sylvania Silver Star is going to offer a "whiter" bulb #880 that should be out very soon

Silver Stars are the "HOT TICKET"! I love 'em.


LISTEN TO ME SHOUTING:

DO NOT BUY ANY 880 BULBS THAT ARE HIGHER THAN 27 WATTS!!!

I bought some 37w hyperwhites for my fogs on my '03 EXT and the bulb shield in the housing on both started to melt. I had to order two new fog light housings.


WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT GET ANYTHING HIGHER THAN 27W BULBS BE IT HYPERWHITE OR WHATEVER, JUST MAKE SURE THEY ARE 27W BULBS

Damn! Thanks for the info though... Wonder if that happened to anyone else? It'll definetely make me think 2wice about gettin em. What's the point in upgrading bulbs if you can't go more than 27w?

I have several customers using 50 watt bulbs (that is how I found out about them) for over 2 years without any problems. I have a friend that just replaced one that burned out (I was there when he changed the bulb) and other than the driving/fog light being cheap plastic POS they looked new.

I have been using the 50 watters in my fogs for some time, maybe it is the cold weather that prevents the metlting or heat factor. I also put 80 watters in the low beams and get no adverse reactions from head on drivers. Helps up here in the dark on highways looking for moose. Am waiting for 100 watters to get in stock for the high beams.
