Default Replacement Fog Light Bulbs

I have blown one bulb and I hate how dim the stock H10's are. What are the best replacement bulbs that can fit in the stock housing without destroying them?

Are the lenses dirty? You can clean them. They offer a kit to buff them out.

Im pretty sure these are the factory originals and they have just dimmed out over the past 12 years. My lenses still look good.

I read somewhere that 9004s would fit but Im not sure if it was in reference to the 2003 or not.

9145 is the stock bulb, which is also called a H10.
If you can find one, 9155 is the same bulb, just 55w (stock is 45w).
A 9005 bulb will also fit (may need to trim a tab on the 9005 bulb). The 9005 is a high beam bulb and does not have the tip coated, so will have more light output.

That being said, the OEM fogs suck. If you get some with the clear lenses it helps a lot, but they just are not good housings.
I am working on some HID replacements for mine.

That is what I was looking for. Would the 9005 melt the glare cap off of the stock housing?
