    There's been a lot of confusion on this issue, cause I think the owner's manual says H3 correct? But I guess that's a mistake, cause I've been looking into the same thing, and the answer I've gotten has been 899. Don't hold me to that, but I'm pretty sure that's what you're looking for. You can also just take the bulb out, and go to a Ford parts dept. and ask them "What number bulb is this?" and they should be able to tell you. Good luck!

    It's 899, but you can get 893 too. Eurolite sells them. I have a pair. They're 893 bulbs.

    Are you sure that there isnt to much voltage going to those lights and maybe burn up a wire?? AND how do you have the foglights on with your parking lights and not your headlights, also I would like to have the blueish color, cause my head lights are blue..
