    Question fog light upgrade

    Has anyone upgraded their fog lights to the Hella Black Magic lights, or any other lights. I want something I can use for driving lights and would like to retain the use of the factory switch if possible. I know you can't use a better bulb in the stock lights because the plastic melts.

    I was just about to post something about that too!! One of my fog lights plastic pieces is missing and I can't seem to find just that part anywhere. Does anyone know of where I can get just that part??

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    its a PITA to put new ones in-i think the bumper cover has to come off in order to do so.

    I had some GORGEOUS blue-ish ones in my NBM car. They were Pilot Cyber Lights

    I am using the Silvania Silverstars bulbs part #880 ST...19.99 each but they dont last long maybe 6 monts if your lucky. They are 3-4x's brighter almost blue in color.

    Thanks for the replies. Are the pilots or silverstars bright enough to run as driving lights by themselves?

    I am running hid's and they dont hurt the lights at all. I run with just fogs and parks with sufficient light output. The hid kit is plug and play, it will cost more than silverstars but they are a lot brighter. I think they are around 80-90 bucks but well worth it. I only have a pic with lows and fogs with hid's so have a look.I have all info you need if interested just contact me.
