Go to Wal-Mart and buy the Cyber-White Navigators with the blue lens. They're the cheapest and one of the best options out there.

The reflector design is superior, they produce whiter light, they come with 55W H3'*, and are easily upgradable to 100W, and best of all, they're slightly smaller than the OEM lights, allowing more airflow to the lower portion of the radiator on the models with the close-together fogs.

Easy mounting to the stock brackets, you just have to drill some holes for some sheet metal screws:



So yes, I use the stock brackets (at least the piece that attaches to the front bumper), and the stock wiring and fuse with 100W H3'*, and have no problems.

If you don't want to change the look of your car.

You can get brand new fog lights just like the ones that you have right now at autozone.

I don't think you will have to change any switches or any wires if you do that.

Right Click and DL.

The 55W bulbs in my lights are just as bright as my highs...

The Reflector design isn't inherently better in either of them, however they are diferent. Cyberwhites are made to cutoff light higher up, so you they don't project at oncoming motoritsts, however, on hilly roads they won't light up as far either. It'* a tradeoff, do you want rollercoaster lighting, or traffic friendly light?

Light output on Clear lenses will be better then Blue lenses any day of the year as it'* a filter. White Light might look a little neater, but it isn't "better" in terms of performance.
