Foglight bulb upgrade
Wondering if anyone has any recommendations for upgrading the fog light bulbs without having to go to a HID kit.

I thinking overall look with no error message displayed after installation. Any and all input is appreciated.

I like the look of mine, but they do give off an error. They also blink a bit while the computer tests them (this test fails, which gives the error) when I turn the car on. As far as I know they don't blink while I am driving :) I've heard there is a small chip/resistor you can place in line with the light to fix this situation.

This is an old pic (obviously, hah!) and I've since replaced the stock xenons with 8000K

I switched out to the Kaibird 5W fog's for a brighter look, no error codes. Do a quick forum search under "fog light" and you will come up with a number of good DIY threads, photos and good info.

I bought some on ebay, and they work perfectly, look better than stock, no error codes, and were fairly inexpensive.
