Default HELP!!! please

I have a question for all the guys here. I have Sliverstar low beams in my car now and the *#itty stock fogs. I am not allowed to change the foglights themselves.

MY question is................

1.is there a silverstar replacement bulb for the foglights
2.what is the number of the foglight bulb
3.What is the wattage of the silverstar(i know the factory is 27w).

I thought that somebody was going to replace their fog bulbs with sliverstars

HELP

1. Yes.
2. Part # 880ST for the fog lights.
3. Around 30 watts.

I was going to ask the same thing. Why can't you change 'em?

I have some Hella Angel Eye Fogs (they're actually driving lights) and they are 55W. MUCH better than stock.

I can vouch that aftermarket driving lamps are WAY brighter, I got Angle Eyes and couldn't be happier with the 55 watt output, ordered a silverstar H-3 for replacement for the Angle eye'* hoping they'll be even brighter but bulbs haven't come yet.

If you can't change the stock lamps, at least pick up some plastic polish and clean up the lenses. Mad a pretty good difference on mine until I replaced 'em.

Looks like H3 and 880 are completely different. Go here to get your bulbs
