Bright White Fog Light Replacement Halogens


Recommended Posts

I recently installed a HID kit for my low beams headlights on my 2001 986. Nice color and light with 5000K bulbs.

Now those stock fog lights sure look yellow! I've installed Sylvania H7ST 12V55W Silver Star High Performance Halogens on my last car (Infiniti FX) and they were a fairly good match to the projector HIDs. They are reasonably priced at $40 to my door. Some of the available "super" bulbs are 50-100% more $. I don't want to have to by light bulb insurance!

Any experience and/or recommendations???

Go w/ the silverstars. You can pick them up at pepboys or even dreaded walfart for under $40 in the pair pack (usually $35). PIAA has a "superwhite" which I put in my Lexus' projector lamps (the GX stupidly has H11 size :huh: which sylvania doesn't make in silvestar line). Yes they are as white, but light output is terrible IMNSHO. So much so, I went back to the stock bulbs until I either put in HID upgrades or retrofit the connector.... hmmm). Might also try the new silverstar ultras (probably double the price again though :o )
