Question Is this the correct foglight for the M3 replica bumper

I recently bought a m3 replica bumper from these guys on ebay and have some questions on the fog lights.


Are fog light bulbs supposed to look like this? These are so weak looking and don't match my HID headlights at all. Is there a possible bulb replacement I can make to a get stronger white/blueish light? It looks like the standard bulb won't even fit in the fog light housing. I don't know anything about fog light bulbs but what type of fog light is this in terms of model numbers like H7, H11, etc...



Bulb installed

Weak light on 9v battery

Yes, these are the POS bulbs I got with my M3 replicae bumper too. They blew out three times in about 6 months. I finally bought 9006xs bulbs and used a dremel to make a couple of nitches in the basse so that it fits. Used electrical tape and h11-9006 adapters. Installing them now...

They look like 501 sized bulbs, they are the side light bulb from the pre lci halogen lights... or at least they look just like them.

Really quite rubbish, you should try and retrofit some proper bulbs in there as suggested above.

The bulb size for m3 rep fog lights is 9006.

get some HID's. Get really good ones (can-bus) or you'll need some error cancelers.
