Found some Sylvania 885 50 watt fog lights at the auto store for $ 7.99 I bought one to try it out to see if I like it.
I know on the site it list the 885 as 55w here on the site but the label says 50W.

If the housing gets damaged I do not care because they are heavily damaged anyway. Heavy Sand Blasted & pitted (ROAD WEAR on them and the driver side has a leak in it.) I plan to replace them soon and the headlights as well due to road wear on them

I'd be more concerned about melting the wiring running a higher watt bulb than stock...

I mite be one of the lucky ones, but I've had 885 in my 05 since 05. One of first things I did was to check if the wiring got hot after install. I know they have been on for more than four hours at a time while driving.

I think the stock 893 is 30-35 Watt. The 885 is much brighter.

Stock bulbs OEM are 27watts

Second photo is just amber lights and the fog lights

you can see my fog lights are correctly aimed at the ground.






885 50w is on the passenger side
893 38W is on the driver side.
