so dual filament headlamp bulbs for fog lamps? thats a new one for me. H3 and 9003 have vastly different mounting bases between the 2 bulbs. not sure how well that would work out for ya

yes, i will have to modify the fog lamp box, ive already looked at what i have to do, not necessarily a dual filament, but maybe a low beam head light bulb of some other sort, would the bulb itself be brighter than the small h3 fog light bulbs?

if you used a 9006 or 9005 they would be easier to modify in to the housing. if you want brighter go with the 9005 that is the high beam bulb for most 4 headlamp cars. you also could go with 100W H3 bulbs with no modification needed and would be brighter than the high beam bulb that you would have to mod in
