confused about M3 rep bumper fogs

just picked up this bumper off of a family member and they came with these fogs. They dont seem like the correct fogs and I doing think ill be able to fit my HID bulbs in there. Should I buy different fogs?

The HID fogs from the original bumper wont fit, I believe those look like projectors and take H3 type bulbs.

If those are the fogs the came with the m3 rep there 9006 bulbs you need to buy adaptors from h11 to 9006 and get hid with 9006 bulbs just did mines and look so much better on 6000k bulbs

these arent the 9006 bulbs thats why I was confused. I think they are actually the h3 bulbs like Zaid said. I just purchased a new set of fogs off of a forum member.

Yup every post I saw said worked with 9006 bulbs. At my friends shop I picked up some 9006 from the front when installing it and they didn't fit snug so I got a bunch of other bulb types and the 9005 fit perfectly.
