I am planning to change me fog light bulbs soon. I just wanted to make sure if the bulbs are h1? Also, I want to make the fog bulbs glow white or white with a tint of blue. Anyone know what brand names are good for fog lights? Thanks.

thanks for the info. I probably look for some h1 bulbs on e bay or something. I already got white glowing bulbs for my clear corners. I need to get my angel eyes installed soon.

dont mean to be a thread hijacker, but one my foglights blew out last week, are the bulbs easy to replace? also the plastic cover of the foglight is cracked, is there anyway to order another one of these?

The bulbs are easy to replace. And for the fog lights, you should try a junk yard or try searching for some on E bay.

HIDs all the way. The fake ones burn out in two weeks tops. Warranty means jack you got to contact the manufacture not the seller from ebay after 2 or 3 sets of fogs you'll go HID no more headaches.
