The "standard" wattage for a 9005 bulb is 65W. Stick with that and you should be good. Anything higher than that, you're gonna risk melting your housings. As for fog lights, depends on the year - 06s and prior used H11 bulbs, while the 07-09s used 9006 bulbs which are normally 55W. What year is your 3?
