Default Replacement Bulbs

I was wondering what replacement bulbs ppl were putting in their fog lamps. I've got a 2001 SLE i've replaced the low beams and high beams with the Cool Blue bulbs (bright white) and wanted to brighten up my fogs. Any ideas ppl?
Thanks

You can do the same with the fogs, too. Look for 893 series bulbs. They are direct replacements for the 880 bulbs you have now.

Send a PM to Hailey, she put in some nice xenon bulbs, she'll have P/N'* and contact info....after all, Bonnes should have super white in em. In my Bonneville I had Cool Blues in my low beams. They worked great

The Cool Blue replacement bulbs were CB9005 and CB9006.

The kid behind the counter told me he uses the off road fog light bulbs on his rice burner.
I'm pretty sure they are illegal here. Has anyone out there tried them on their Bonnies

Thanks

Well Cool blues and Silverstars are legal lamps in Ontario. If used properly. There is a piece of paper inside the package that proves the lights are DOT approved. If any light hasn't received DOT approval, then its illegal.

I used Cool Blues in my 89SE and I had not one peep from no one

Sorry i mean't the fog lights on his rice burner. He said he used the same bulbs they use on off road trucks which are not street legal or so i am told.

Does anyone know if the 893 bulbs will work in the 2003 SE?? I would lke to get the HD Xenon bulbs for my Bonnie also. I have seen deals for the head lamps (low and high beams) on ebay. I am looking to find the exact part number for the fog lamps.

Thanks

The exact # for the fog lights are 880 which are 21watts, a stronger bulb is #893 and are 37.5 watts and fit exact.

Caution though with 893'* I just tried a set of Silverstars and I had some yellow 893 laying around and the silverstars look great and are fine, BUT the 893 bulb gets the fog lamp hosing MUCH HOTTER!!! I didn't like how much hotter it was to the stock 880 bulb and took it out, back to stock. The first day I changed one side of each to see what was brighter.

STOCK WON on my 01 ssei. The Silverstars were about equal brightness, actually they were brighter closer to the car but weren't as bright in the distance challenge. More light was the plan so I'm going back to stck for now.
