I got my bulbs from eurodezigns for high beams, low beams, and fog lights. They are halogen bulbs, so about 20% brighter than standard bulbs, and they are blueish-white rather than the ugly stock yellowish light. They set me back $25 per pair, but I'm happy with them, and it's cheaper than investing $600 into some angel eyes. Yeah, for my car H1's are fogs, 9005 are high beams (inside two lights), and 9006 are low beams (outside lights).

Damn Dave, you are researching the headlights and bulbs hardcore. Thats the way to do things to find out if you want it or not...

anyway, most Euro Spec projector headlights (which I noticed you were looking at) use H1 or H7 bulbs as to fit into the projector housing. The North American Spec headlights that our BMWs come with in Canada and USA use 9005s and 9006s. All foglights use the H1s. It all depends on exactly what kind of bulb you are looking to get. The basic Sylvanias found in pep boys are probably like $10 a pair. Silverstars are about $25-$30 a pair (prices at Walmart). Usually what type of bulb they are doesn't make all that much difference in the price...
