those are good bulbs but yah return them and if you opened the box then just use the sticker to seal the sides back up and they will never know.

you can go with pilots from autozone or order some housings online just make the fog light housing fits in your factory hole and depending on what kind you get you may have to rig up your own mounting bracket but its really not that difficult. if you really want to be fancy you can go with some angel eyes. the brightness of the bulbs really depend on how many watts they are. ive seen some 100 watt fog lights but i didnt get them because i was scared they would damage my angel eyes. if you go with really high wattage fog lights make sure the lenses are glass and not plastic because plastic will definately melt.
