Where to get foglight Bulbs (H8)

One of my fog light bulbs is out. I went to Autozone, PEP Boys and Kragen to look for H8 Bulbs and couldn't find any. Are the dealerships the only one that carries this bulb type?

Thanks.

If you want OEM then the dealer, if you want something white (and you know it has low light output coz it has only 35w) check Hoen or check with Google site.

Thanks. I was actually looking for Sylvania Silverstars, I had used it before and it has a hint of white but nice output at the same time. I'll go to the dealer if I can't find one. Thanks for reminding me about Hoen, I've always been curious on the reliability of their xenon match bulbs.

For some obscure reason there are two types of H8 bulb with different fixings and different wattages (35W and 55W), why they should both be called H8 is quite beyond me.

I gave up gracefully and bought a pair of the 35W ones from the dealer which was not too expensive.

That's what probably I'll end up doing.
