you need 9007 for the headlights, and you dont have to do the fogs, but it looks good, unless you get like a 2k or 3k the hids arent very good in the fog.

I think it's 9007 for the heads and 9005 for the fogs (not 100% sure), I'd recommend 55w for the heads and 35w for the fogs. Don't necissarily need hi/lo with HIDs and 55w is a lot brighter IMO.

I know a few people that are running 55w some for a few years now. Never had any problems with them. But I haven't heard anything about them melting things...

Just ordered mine. I hear it will take a little wiggling to get them to fit, but 9005 are the ones you want for fogs. heads are 9007. I'm not sure if they are different for an 03 but I'm sure someone will chime in soon with the answer.

9007 for the heads and you will need H10 for the fogs. I have the same set up and love it! I just went to the site and it looks like they offer some mounting brackets now, they are only 4 bucks and it will make the install much easier. I am using brackets on mine for heads but they are from another kit so they are not an exact fit but definitely made my install easier

H10 for the fogs...

Thanks Tom!

Is that just for him or are you telling me I ordered the wrong ones?

Out of all the people I talked to about HID's no one mentioned the H10. They just said 9005 would work.

Our fogs come with 9145 stock. Back in the days of expensive lighting people used to shove 9005 bulbs into the fog sockets to get a cheap upgrade, but it's not made for 9005 bulbs.

H10 = 9145, so what you want is 9145. The 9005 could likely work but you're just putting unnecessary stress and fatigue on your socket as well as yourself without any advantage.
