Foglights

Has anyone changed the foglights to match the bright white headlights yet, they dont match up, how hard is it to switch them?

I have Lumens HID kit 6000k in my fogs. No errors or issues. Not an exact match but it's better than that off white stock bulbs.

Yeah same as me, I got HID 6000k in my fogs it's a pretty close match and very bright ! At night you can even ride around with just the fogs on and angel eyes ...it lights up the whole street

Can you get stronger bulbs for the headlights?

I have a 550 and changed out my fog lamps. It was very easy - 10 min job max. Do you still need more info? I can provide specifics and recommendations if you desire. FYI, I found the procedure and light recommendations in this forum.
