Fog light issue!!!HELP NEEDED

Well I got a 00 328ci and I bought some cheap fog light bulbs from ebay. Supposelly the bulbs are a lot brighter than the stock ones. Well after installing the new bulbs my fuse keep getting burned out for some reason. I did it like three times. Any suggestions to what it might be? Thanks in advanced.

BTW the bulbs from ebay are also 9006.

If you put HID fog light you need HID conversion kit to do that.
It is same work as you change halogen to HID. (you need a conversion to do that) That will cost $150-200 for that kit.

It is true that if you use D2S bulbs rather it is 6000k or 8000k, you can use your OEM ballaster an igniter for the Fogs?

you can use the d2s (6000k or 8000k) with your OEM ballasts and igniters, but you won't be able to put them in the fogs unless you modify your fogs
