Okay, I'm not ready to spend the money on a HID kit for the fog lights and removing the whole bumper and everything. So I'm just going to install the HID look a like bulbs, BUT..... I don't know if these are the right ones? Could you please tell me if these are the correct ones and which one I should go with. <p>1) <A HREF="http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/HID-Xenon-Fog-Light-Bulb-2009-Volvo-S40-2009_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trkparmsZ65Q3a12Q7c66Q3a4Q7c39Q3a1Q7c72Q3a1205Q7c240Q3a1318Q7c301Q3a1Q7c293Q3a1Q7c294Q3a200QQ_trksidZp3286Q2ec0Q2em14QQhashZitem5189532caaQQitemZ350196280490QQptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories" TARGET="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors...ories</A> (Post says 100W but box says 35W...?)<p>2) <A HREF="http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/H11-2008-2009-VOLVO-S40-Fog-Light-Bulbs-Super-White_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trkparmsZ65Q3a12Q7c66Q3a4Q7c39Q3a1Q7c72Q3a1205Q7c240Q3a1318Q7c301Q3a1Q7c293Q3a1Q7c294Q3a200QQ_trksidZp3286Q2ec0Q2em14QQhashZitem20ac0c429fQQitemZ140325438111QQptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories" TARGET="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors...ories</A> <p> <U>Now when I go to Auto Parts Warehouse the bulbs look like this...</U> <br> <A HREF="http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/search/?N=5800&Nr=AND(universal%3A1)&V=11884+1733+4294963251&Vh=2009+Volvo+S40&V=11884+1733+4294963251&Vh=2009+Volvo+S40&Npp=50" TARGET="_blank">http://www.autopartswarehouse....pp=50</A> <p><br>Thank you.

I'm not sure if you can access the bulbs without removing the bumper. Can others who have done it, please chime in?

Re: (fone)

Oh you can definitely install them without taking off the bumper. All you do is pop the fog light cover off witha flat head and then unscrew the fog light assembly. Disconnect the wiring harness and then change out the bulb. You actually have to remove the fog lights before you can remove the bumper <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> This is the steps for my '07 so ur 2010 might be different. <p>Anyways for the bulb go to <A HREF="http://www.hoen-usa.com/fog2.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.hoen-usa.com/fog2.htm</A> I believe our bulb is the h10, i would double check tho. These xenon match bulbs look sick and match the OEM xenons very well! Only $60, totally worth it.<br>

Re: (Modernman)

H11 is correct. Any bulb you get will look good for a while, but yellow over time. I got these bulbs and they matched my factory Xenons perfectly...<p><A HREF="http://www.automotivelightingusa.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=10_22&products_id=1020&zenid=2c4827e76515877f2045f4fc111117a3" TARGET="_blank">http://www.automotivelightingu...117a3</A><p>Hope that helps...

Yes H11, i have the Hoen endurance bright ass yellow bulbs and they are pretty sweet.<p>However for the 50$ or whatever i spent i dont think the quality is any better than the Nokya yellow bulbs i had in my integra fogs for over a year. And those are like 18$ i think lol. Just me but id get the Nokya bulbs, they were brighter i think too if i had to compare.
