    Foglight bulbs

    Hey everyone.

    I've recently done a search and found that H3 bulbs are needed for the foglights.

    If it makes any difference I have a coupe bumper with foglights on.

    I was just wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of which ones to get please as there seems to be loads of different variations?

    At the moment the drivers side isn't as bright as the passenger side probably due to getting one bulb from here and one from there.

    I've seen that you can get blue/white ones or normal ones and there's a lot of different voltage and wattage for them.

    I haven't changed my main headlights for HID's or anything so am just after some standard bulbs really.

    fogs are yellow for a reason so just stick normal H3 bulbs in and ur sorted

    afterall you aint gonna use them when its not foggy are you ???

    the poor output is more than likely due to water ingress in the units causing misting or mildew on the glass or even worn reflective paint on the plastics...

    a pair of halogen H3 bulbs can be had for a couple of quid.... but u may still be in the same position as before..... with replacement lenses being the next step..... if ur really that bothered!!!!

    do u honestly use them enough to warrant changing them??????

    No only when it's foggy or on some of the B roads I drive on which have nasty potholes and deep drainage covers.

    I'm the type that has to have things right whether they're used a lot or not, plus it'll just pee me off when I do have them on and can see that one light is different from the other.
    To me, a bit like driving with only one headlight working. . . .

    Thanks for reply buddy.
