Default Head/Fog Lamps...whats the best?

Someone educate me, Ive been looking all over the site for a brighter foglamp and headlamp. The fogs are on all the time.

I have sylvania ultras. Is there a brighter bulb out there that does not require any modifications like adding a xenon does? I had xenons...the ballast burnt out. Ive seen these Hella Optilux XP bulbs for the lowbeam. Thoughts??

For the fogs..i like the look of the angel eyes...but ive heard bad things. Anything brighter than stock.

thanks
the light at the end of the tunnel is hard to see with stock bulbs

I'm running SS'* in my highs and lows and have switched my stock driving lights over to cyberwhites with 100w cyberwhite H3 bulbs. The driving lights and bulbs ran around 55 bucks at pepboys

Do the cyberwhites have a blueish lens?

Moved to Gen chat...not an electrical problem.

Silverstar IMO is more of a look then performance. The sylvania bulbs in the pinkish/purple packaging actually produce more light since they do not have the blue tint to them... Tints on bulbs reduce light transmission, and the bluer the light, the more it will glare on wet/snowy roads.

I've got philips bulbs, and LOVE them. I've gotten more light from them, than any SS, and for about half the cost of SS.

Fog lights? well I went from Hella Driving lights, to the Blazer projector fogs...

I run 5300kish for the low beams, better than stock but is slightly harder to see in rain, the high beams are 8500k that'* just for show, I never use them anyway.

foglamps are from autopia, the bulb is 5300k also, it produces a whiter light than the stock bulb.

Where the hell do you find the Blazertech 3200s I've been hearing all about? I must be dumb, I can't find a damn place on the web to buy them that look legit.
