there are no best bulb.........but the silverstar is run by MANY on the club including me. I would say to replace the fogs with a good set of driving lights. I have the Hella Angle eyes with a 55w silverstar bulb

I'm in Fayetteville for college, where is Anger??

To remove/replace an H3 bulb (I think the stockers use H3) you actually have to take out a little screw. Pull the entire assembly and look at the back. It'* common sense from there...

the aftermarket lights are a H3 tho

the stockers have a 27W 880 bulb and can be replaced by a 50w 885 bulb
