Can you use or are you supposed to use 9005 for a hid fog light bulb? I thought 9005 was for high beams.

x2. 9005 is for the high beam.

Just curious, but why do you ask? Are you trying to make the fogs brighter?
No, I bought a set for my lows and fogs from a local dealer so if I have any issue I can just drive a few block and have the fix it for free, but they had to order my fogs and they ordered 9005 and they said they will work. So I was just curious.

Well... just so you know 9005s are 65 watts. 9145s are 45 watts. I'm surprised the dealer is saying that 9005s are fine in the foglight. 9005s are a higher wattage bulb and will draw more current through the OEM wiring. The OEM wiring might not be suitable to handle that higher wattage. I personally wouldn't do that, but it's your choice.

No I dont want the higher watts, is it possible they ordered the 9005 to have the 8k color match? I will be going up there tomorrow to change to 9145

I was wondering about that. I had one of my HID bulbs go out in my fogs and when I asked the guy for a replacement he sent me an H10. It threw me off bc the 9145 has a right angle and the H10 is straight. Thought he sent me the wrong bulb.
