I believe the fog light bulbs will be HB4 with a bayonet type fitting.
You don't get much light from them as they are designed to have a wide spread beam across the road. I put some cree LED units in mine so with side lights on I can use them as DRL's if I wish. Much more useful as we no longer seem to get fog.
+1 for the Osram night breakers above
