Am I just not looking enough, or is there a simple option? Thanks.
Your not looking enough , j/k you need to look for a 9006 size bulb. I did a quick search and found a few PIAA ion's on Amazon.com for around 70-80 but for that type of money I would switch to HID.

I purchased a similar HID kit from them and they work great. You will get better light output from HID and a 3000k bulb will be yellow.

Lex56, thanks for the info. I had already installed a set of LED fogs in my GS. But I went with the projector LED bulbs. I bought those and a set identical to the ones you installed. I put your LED in one fog light and the projector in the other. The Lumen difference is unbelievable. Way higher than stock. But once installed, it dropped some due to the cap that covers the bulb in the housing. If anyone on here is looking for usable light output in the fogs without HID, you can but the LED 6000k projector bulbs on ebay. They are identical to the normal LED bulbs. The only issue is you have to disassemble the fog light housing and remove the cap that covers the stock 9006 bulb. Looking into the bulb, it uses a phillips head screw to hold the cap on. I just haven't had time to remove it. So I will look into checking the fog light to see if it needs to be baked and separated, or if it can just be taken apart. If i get to it soon, i will let you all know.

This was very useful when I changed out my factory bulbs for some Nokya yellows. Hope they last, because that was a pain in the butt!!!
