Default Hep!lFoglight and high beam bulbs different than SLE models

I looked up in my manual and it says to use a H1Ri1 bulb for the bright bulb and nobody has them.Advance says they have a H1 but its different.Can I use a 9005 high beam bulb for this that is listed for a SE-SLE model.will this be a different watt or brightness bulb?Also my listing for the foglight bulb says an 880 for a 2004 GXP and SE_SLE models in 2004-2005 but the 2005 GXP says to use a H11 bulb and the bulb I removed is a H3 which was replaed by the Pontiac dealer under warrenty.Would a H11 work since that what was used in a 2005 GXP and would it be brighter than an H3 or 880 bulb or would it burn my wire harness up?My foglights are dim with the H3.If anyone can tell me I would really appreciate this since I want to convert to a Xenon HID system for the foglight and high beams.Thanks

The fog light is H3. I know people have put others in, but as touchy as the fogs are I won't do it.
And by the way my drivers fog is OUT AGAIN. Changed it two days ago. Has to be the ground.

You arent touching the bulb with your fingers cause the oil in your skin will burn them out faster.Also there is a 55 watt and a 100 watt H3 bulb and the pontiac dealer replace mine and put in 55 watt bulbs and maybe the 100 watts arent made for our cars and burn out.
