Fog Lamps

I've got the fog lamps shown here:



(oh, I'm also missing the part in in red, if anyone knows what this is called/where to get it please!?)

I hit something on the freeway, which knocked the housing for the head lamp right out, so it doesn't fit in the lense anymore.

I noticed what looks like what used to be a pin broken off one end, which is probably why it won't stay in anymore. Anyone had a problem with this? Where

Also, I was some super-ass bright bulbs in there. I've been a PIAA X-treme white/blue bulb fan in the past (and they guarantee their bulbs for one year - yes, they sent me free bulbs when mine burnt out!).

What are the brightest/best bulbs I can get for these - these H7's?


Thanks!

it looks like it's part of your front bumper grill. the whole black part stretches across the bumper does it not?

No, actually it doesn't. You can pull out individual pieces - they all clip in.

Hmm, "bumper grill" - clever.

i'm thinking it's the ones number 7,9,12. they're all called "partially open grid-left" don't know if that's it, but there's so many parts on the bumper that comes off

Yep you can reorder those parts through the dealer.

As for the bulb, you have two options. You can go with a xenon colored halogen replacement such as our Predator Xenix bulbs or you can go with a full HID setup like our ProLumen HID kits.

You will need 9006 bulb application for your fogs.
