In the user manual of the car, the specification of the fog-lamp is mentioned as GE 881 - 27 watts .

The Philips guy I went to for a replacement told me its a H27 W/1 12V 27 W bulb... I am totally confused !!! My car is the New Hyundai Verna (2011) aka Hyundai Accent in some countries.

The bulb gives low light output and dumb yellow light. I have replaced the stock headlamps with 5000 K lamps and the parking lamps with 6700 K LED lights. Now, the fog-lights look out of place being low-output and yellow.... I'm trying hard to get a replacement but not being able to get the right bulb. I went to a bulb-dealer and he told me that he can fit 4300 K 55 W bulbs but they are H11 and he will have to file the folder a bit and I was not very impressed... I think he was talking about fitting a driving light on the fog-light fitment. Aren't there any fog-light fitments of white light and higher output ?? Please Help how to go about it..

There must be bulbs of Philips/Hella/Bosch of a higher output and emitting white light which can be fitted directly on to the socket without filing holders/any complications .... Any idea ??

Thanks in advance and Cheers !!!

Do a google search for 880 bulb. If you can't find what you're looking for there, you have unrealistic expectations of light bulbs.

Go with HID kit with H27 type bulb, and temp matching your HL. You get them in India. They are mostly 35Watts.
