Question Fog Lights: H11 55W or H8 35W Bulbs???

Does anyone know the answer to this???

I'm trying to modify the color of my fog lights and I believe the factory bulbs are using H11 55W. I read that I can use the GP Thunder H8 35W bulbs. Will this cause an error???

Thanks in advance.

Fogs will be an H11 for your car. The angel eyes are an H8 35w bulb if you have xenons.

I did do some research, which is why I was asking the question. If you go to this GP Thunder thread (http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showt...ght=fog+lights) it states "E82/E88 Fog Lights=h8 35W." It contradicts the information on the link you sent, as well as the thread I had found earlier (http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showt...=h11+fog+light). I was mainly asking for clarification.

AND this shouldnt matter, but I'm not a "dude" I'm a girl. =)

its h8 35W for your angel eyes (with xenons), and h11 55w for your fog lights, i can confirm this


in regards to your thread title, i already re-edited the thread to reflect this change, sorry about that

Hi. Did you ever do this? I found some PIAA ION crystal H11 bulbs on Amazon, which would be nice for the DC area heavy rains. Han't decided to do it yet though. What color did you end up installing, how do they look?
