Default fog light bulb suggestion?

shortly after i bought my car i installed Silverstar headlamp and fog lamp bulbs. one of my fog lamp bulbs keeps burning out. i replaced it once through the store warranty at Advanced Auto and once through Silverstar. then i read that a few others have had Silverstar fog lamp bulb problems. im done with the Silverstars. im sick of them not lasting more then a few months. what other brands of fog lamp bulbs do u guys suggest?

I have had good luck with Nokya 893 bulbs. Check eBay for lowest prices.

Actually I have these in the Bonny. I like the yellow for rain and fog. I also run a CATZ lamp down under the front bumper.

I have these in the Montana. They work really well. I wish I could find them in Yellow and I have been looking for a while.

Our fog lamps are really toy lighting and not designed to work well in inclement weather. Which is why so many on the BC have changed out to a differnt light and housing.

yes if you want a good change, you need to switch out the entire housing. most popular on this forum are the Cyberwhite Navgatiors, and the Hella Angel Eyes

Default 880 silverstar

I bought silverstars for my 05 sle. when I went to replace them I noticed that the harness will not fit the 880 silverstar. Do I need a new harness end? where would I get that piece to rewire. Thanks, Popp
