    FOG LIGHTS - Just so you know..

    They are H11 bulbs and NOT H7.

    Power bulbs website says they are H7, bought some new bulbs, whipped the fog lights grilles off, unscrewed the lamp and discovered they are H11 bulbs.

    I think they changed them to H11's in 2008.

    Strange, as I know people on here with a 2006 model have posted they have H7's?

    Maybe they changed them in 2006

    Mike, 100% certain on mine they're H11, it says on the back of the bulb, i was surprised myself Saturday morning when i whipped them out.

    I'm gonna have to get some photographic evidence to prove it lol.

    100%.

    03-08 Sport/S3 with the flat top of the fog lights are H7, the all round fogs on sline/s3's are H11.

    08 facelift onwards are all H11.

    Goosey in etka, it clearly denotes the type
