They wont match at all.. if you do it, spend the extra $20 and order matching bulbs for your fogs. The ballasts are still good.

^^ You can do this.


But i don't see a problem with mis-matching the fogs and lights.

As long as the headlights are white (aka 4-5k), the fogs could be pink it wouldn't matter, nor look ugly, it's a matter of taste.

This. 9145 is also referred to as H10. 9145/H10 is the factory size.
