Any 9005 bulb that does not exceed the standard 65 watts will be a nice upgrade. You can get them in silverstar and xtravision.

I have $2 100W bulbs I found online. I got them a year and a half ago and replaced my first one last month.

Some will say 100 is too much, but I have yet to have a problem, and I use them a lot.

Any 9005 will fit. Strongly recommend not exceeding 65 watts. Doing so is likely to melt something.

I've got Eurodezigns headlights and foglights. 9007 for the headlights and 9005 for the fogs. They were $20 a pair on ebay and they are standard wattage. I know the headlight wattage is the same as stock but I can't remember what that is at the moment. But I know that the foglights are 65 watts. They shine with a blue-ish tint and are pretty bright. Cheaper alternative to Silverstars but yet they are "brighter".

I had 100 watters in my fogs, but my fogs are wired for like 500 watt. the problem is that the enclosure of the fog light is very small, and a 100 watt bulb gets very hot, and since its plastic, i actually deformed the lense of both my fogs, and torward the end there they actually sprung a leak. so i bought new fogs for it and run stock bulbs, i dunbno what they are tho.

in my headlights i had silverstars however they burn out too fast, i switched to xtravision, same light output, slightly different color yet they last 10x as long.
