Has anyone upgrade to these bulbs (or know someone who has)? http://www.stylintrucks.com/parts.aspx?selected_prod_ids=5591

If so, how difficult is it to change the bulbs?

Thanks in advance
I haven't used these particular bulbs, but I noticed that they are blue coated. Blue coated bulbs actually have less light output than clear bulbs and are not recommended for fog or regular headlamps, but they do provide a whiter appearing light. The following link provides some additional technical information on automotive lighting products for anyone interested.

Do not replace your foglamp bulb with a halogen light source, unless you want a melted foglamp. The foglamp bulb is a type of mini incandesant. Halogen light sources are much hotter.

GM instructions say to remove the tire and the wheel house liner. I found that you can remove the screws (5) around the fender lip and behind the air dam (2) and pull it back enough to get at the bulbs. I removed the tires, but I saw on another thread that you can get in there by turning the tire away from you.
