i find my low beams with fogs on pretty decent but theres room for improvement, after some reading here's what i did. i replaced the h11 low beams with h9's, they are 65 watt vs 55 and 2100 lumens vs 1250. had to modify the bulb a little but it works. i replaced the 9145 fogs with Wagner tru white 9005's. i have to wait for dark to test the results. i know the 9005 is a hi beam bulb but down that low im not to worried, also with all the punks goin around with 12000k hids im not concerned about glare, i am also gonna pick up some silver star 9005's for the hi beams...couldn't get any today. if anyone is interested heres where i got the info
h11 to h9

the 9005 go in with no issues just got to jiggle the bulb a little to get it into the base, plug is the same.

also keep in mind you have to take the headlights out the replace the bulbs...impossible other wise. and dont forget the put the dustcaps back on like i did

the roads are wet again tonight...go figure, but the low beam seem a little better, def helps out the highs...the fog lights are awesome....world of difference i am very very happy...front on glare is not to bad, i get the same amount of glare from the lows as the fogs so im happy about that. i just got to keep watch and make sure nothing melts lol...the fog housing is pretty big so im not to worried about heat build up...it seems as big or bigger than the hibeam housing and its the same bulb so we shall see.
