A little confused about bulbs for M3 rep fogs

Hello,

I just purchased an M3 rep bumper. I know the new fogs will be a 9006 bulb (instead of the H8 bulbs on my current E92 335.) I have OSS style angels and 8k headlights, and I want to make sure my new fogs match. Can anyone point me in the right direction for 8000k 9006 bulbs? Do I need to buy a HID kit for this? I've looked all over the forums but I haven't seen this specific situation discussed aywhere.

I haven't used this site (as I have a local guy I go to) but have heard nothing but good things about them.

Choose 9006 for "bulb application" and 8000k for "color."

if you want them to truely match you should be going HID since thats what your 8000K headlight bulbs are.
the only zinger is bulb color is also a matter of angle....so be aware you will def have to crouch down to see that they match....the color reflecting off the inside of the housing (as in if you are looking at the housing from standing height) may be different.

the color output (on the road ahead) will be the same.
