All lights were purchased from phastek performance. Great company and quick shipping. The LED's for the interior and the license plate are actually the same bulb size, yet different prices. So if you buy from them, I suggest just going with the cheaper set X 2.

bulb

My husband keep complaining about how stupid GM was to put a different types of bulbs on the front of the car. (He's a GM retiree.) He wondered how he could change out the fog light bulbs. Thanks for the information. I know my 45 will have new bulbs in a week!

I couldn't agree more with your husband. I feel like if you get the RS package, or in our cases the 45th package, you should automatically get HID fog lights since you already get the HID Halos.

What's funny about GM is that if you go to the chevrolet website, all the pictures of camaros have HID fog lights! That's false advertising to me .

Oreailly's Auto Parts, Autozone, #3157 for the front bulbs in chromed color. they take away the Amber color when you look at them through the lenses, but when you use your blinker they are Amber again!
I opted for the clear because i don't care, if the police ask me to change them then i will! they blink and other drivers should know what i am trying to do!

Installation just involves removing 3 screws on each side (under panel with an allen wrench), twist the old bulb out and plug the new one in!

Tell me about it! When I was shopping for my car, I was all excited about the 12's because I saw their website with the "HID" fog lights and thought that was one of the changes made for the year...Needless to say, I was a little disappointed.

Just Plasti Dipped my wheels today! Love this stuff. I'm certainly not the first to do this on a 45th, but thought I'd share my pics. All credit goes to hightower for inspiring me.
