Default Blown fog light bulb, recommendations

So I noticed that my fog light bulb was blown when I pulled behind this excessively clean Ram truck today. I can get a brand new stock replacement at Autozone for $8.99, which to me is pricey, and I've found online for $5.00. But, before I replace it, anybody have any recommendations for replacement bulbs under 12 dollars a piece that may perform better than the stock bulbs? I don't want to change the bulb housing... I like the way the stock housing fits in the bumper hole perfectly, or else I'd get projectors. They look sweet, but they leave too much of an empty void.

My bulb is the GE 880, and it almost looks stock (the plastic is really light colors on the outside, nice dark brown on the inside, and tons of little cracks lol.

EDIT: Found this http://www.fadfusion.com/selection.p...er=20082403551... but it seems too cheap to be true. Only thing that makes me think it is is the filament doesn't look typical. Figured it'd be brighter.

An 880 bulb should be under 2 bucks.

If you are staying with the stock fog lamp setup you might want to look at the 893 bulb, 37.5 Wats and 940 lumens, or the 885 bulb, 50 Wats 1255 lumens.

The 880 bulb is 27 Wats 540 Lumens.
