I want to change my fogs bulbs to mach with the xenons, I know that no halogen bulb can compare, but it would look better.
I think that our cars fogs bulbs are 9006, but the 9005 its more powerfull, any one know if that extra power would burn the housing? The 9005 and 9006 are the same bulbs with diferent power, aren´t they?

Yes, the 9005's are higher wattage. They also have a different plug. There is a small ridge on the inside of the plug, that if you cut out with a utility knife you can plug into the harness.

power can be the same the # difference in the bulb has to do with the housing of the bulb

Also, usually the 9006's have a reflective coating on the tips, 9005's don't.
