Default Fog light upgrade?

Ok...I have silverstars in my headlights, and my fog-lights are nothing compaired to them.

My question is, what is a good replacement for the factory fogs? I'm looking for something really bright, but not like OMG I'm blinding other people bright. And I know that the silverstar fogs burn out quick.

My other question is, are the fog'* a whole unit, or just the bulbs?

Thanks!!

the best thing to do is replace the entire fog light assembly... the stock ones are plastic.

I LOVE my Hella, and others that have the Cyberwhite'* have upgraded to the Hella'*.

Than being said some people are gonna only recommend the Cyberwhite'*.....

I can tell you this, I have the Hella'* with a Silverstar H3 55w bulbs and they are AMAZING

well what'* your budget? I just purchased some foglamps form autotopia they costly, but it'* a one time deal, after all.... you do get what you pay for. Also, if you don't use your foglights alot you can just use a brighter bulb I've forgotten the # but I know it'* 88something they cost about 12 bucks a peice.

Don't upgrade the bulbs in your stock foglight housings until you replace the housings with something other than the OEM garbage.

Higher wattage foglight bulbs will melt your stock lenses.
