    These are alright I guess. Not the best quality. Probably the cheapest you'll find at $33 from JCWhitney. The beam pattern is more of a driving light than fog, but I mainly did it for cosmetic reasons. They even mount up perfectly in the stock mounts. I would suggest you get some foglight film to protect them or any other foglight you buy to prevent damage in the future. I now have stocks back in which is my 5th set of fogs and decided to get the film, and let me tell you, the film works.

    But remember, you get what you pay for.

    Part 73ZX6025T for amber they also have yellow ones but I do not know the part number, if you search by the part # it displays the default clear leans, but they are amber.

    They fit fine with the P5 bracket but you will need to snip or tap in your wire because they are not traditonal h3 with a plug.

    also trhey are 30 bucks not 40 like I stated before.

    Hope this helps

    Does anyone have any experience with melting wires/harnesses due to the use of a 85w or 100w set of fogs? It seems to me that this would be more common with a fog requiring greater power. I'm also assuming that these aftermarket fogs are pretty plug-and-play with the stock harness, enabling use of the foglight switch (if you haven't modded to make it ineffective). Anyone have any thoughts/experience?

    According to Mr Magnum, the fogs @ JC Whitney are not plug and play; however, it's just a matter of connecting two wires using whatever means you like.

    I tapped into the wires of the H3 harness for our cars, and I've had these fogs for over two yrs with the same bulb they come with and have never experienced any problems with the heat of the bulbs. The ones I referenced above are very good and very bright

    are those, fog, driving, or spot lights?
