Fog Light HID Conversion

Anyone know what HID bulb I would need to convert the fog lights to HID?

You need a kit with an H3 bulb- Not sure but I think you need to be careful with the Wattage too- These bulbs can be HOT and that is a very small housing- Melting could be a problem....I think

Just found this- It's got the listing for replacement lights- Enjoy!!

If you are installing a true HID system with ballast, etc, the bulbs come in two different wattages. 35w and the new 55w. The K factor is another thing to keep in mind here. The lower the K factor, ie, 4000k for instance, throws a better light than a 8000k. Quite the opposite with halogen bulbs. Halogen bulbs also throw a lot more heat than the HID bulbs. So, I would say its safe to install a 35w 4000k H3, assuming you have H3 halogen bulbs in there right now.
