What is the wattage of the fog lights?

I searched and didn't find anything. I'm sure I didn't search hard enough. Also, can they be replaced with a higher wattage bulb? I'm looking to get a little more function out of them. I know they are H11 bulbs, but I've seen 55W and 80W (I'm guessing 55W???).

I'm lazy, and my car/manual is 10 miles away in my garage. I was just wondering whilst sitting here procrastinating at work.

yes, they are 55watts. I'm sure you can replace them with 80w bulbs.

How sure are you?? :p Would I run the risk of blowing a fuse or worse?

Check the threads... I read here somewhere somebody replaced the foglights with aftermarket bulbs that are brighter... I'm too lazy to do it for you.
