Not sure what size/type lamp your fogs use. If I understand correctly, you said 880. If so, yes, there is a direct silverstar replacement for the 880 bulb. It'* 880ST.

here'* the silverstar page for your reference. It lists all the current available bulb sizes.

If you just want the color between the lows and fogs to match, then the silverstars 880 will work. If you want to dramatically improve the output from the fogs, then the Cyber Whites are the way to go.

I think one of my bulbs is defective. The one on the drivers side has sorta a red tint to it when compared to the passengers which has a blueish tint to it. It is noticeable when look at them lit. How do I know which one is correct? The one with the redish tint looks blue when compared to a standard headlight.

I am going to call the Sylvania Customer Service '800' number tomorrow and talk to them about it. It slightly affects the light output, but they are still better than the halogen stockers that were in there.

The silverstars should have a blue tint to them.

Sounds like that one might be burning too hot, which may mean a crack in the glass, which is letting air in. Most likely it will burn out very shortly.

Still have the receipt? Bring it back to the store and exchange it...

I called Sylvania, they said the one with the red tint is bad to return it. I called Advance Auto and they will take it Back!
