Default Xenon Fog Lights

I'm too lazy to run out into the cold and check. The fog lights on a 94 are 880'* correct?

I'm looking at Matrix 880 fog light bulbs because I already have the headlights. However the wattage on the Matrix ones are 37, and I believe the stock ones are 24. Anyone got some input?

Default xenon bulbs

I tried the Nokia 37 watt bulbs and it melted the plastic lenses on my '02 SSEI. The original ones I put back on 24 watts. I have Silver star headlamps, nice and white but really no brighter than OEM. I wanted white fogs to match so I tried the Nokia and they melted the lenses in a week. I keep the fogs on alot, I just like the way it looks. Good luck.

I verified it. Mine are 880 27watt bulbs. I'm gonna go for the Matrix bulbs because my headlight bulbs are Matrix as well and they also are rated at a higher wattage than stock. No problems for months.

Default Fog lamps

Hello Allmachtige, how are the new fog lamps doing?
Did you get the stock wattage or higher for the 880'*?
Do you have plastic or glass lenses on those fog lamps?
I leave mine on alot, you also?
Thanks.
