Are you replacing the whole lamp or the bulb? I replaced my bulbs with Hoen H-10s but other than that I haven't touched the fogs.

Don't answer that. I just read that the xenonmatch are the ones that match the HIDs [?|] [?|] [?|] [?|]

Do you mean the whole svt lamp? If so, yes, because theyre glass. All it takes is a small rock to pop it. I just get mine covered under warranty, lol. I wish they made them from lexan, that wouldnt happen anymore.

I am only on my second, but i have only had the car for a year, lol. I have been getting them off eBay and they are of decent quality.

One thing i have been debating is getting some laminx for them....if you go directly to their site, you can buy 10mil clear!! That seems like it would add a little cushion fo' shizzle.

also, not to highjack the thread...but to do it anyway [:p]... if I put silverstars in my headlights, what bulbs would match in the fogs?

STOP TOUCHING THEM! If they're burning out that badly your touching the glass with your hands (no matter how slight) and the oils from your hands are superheating and cracking the glass. Simple as that. Where some latex gloves when installing any HID lamps.

That goes for ANY light bulb.

Cliff, I believe he is talking about the outer lens...not on the bulb. I have broken two this year and my roomate had a sport trac with the same lights...he was busting the lenses all the time from people kicking up rocks.
