i've head of people using HID bulbs in their reverse housings, but not these yet. Try them out, and see if they work. Seems like they have a decent return policy, and a 1 year warranty.

you have to take the rubber O-ring off to fit it in the stock fog light housing, btw. They make smaller HID bulbs though, so it's entirely possible. I think it's a little odd how these have lenses on them. It looks like it concentrates the light directly out. Would be curious to see the reverse light brightness from a side angle.

The HID reverse light mod was posted here a while back ...
Reverse Light Upgrade Xenon HID 5000k

With a single backup light, I am not sure it could be too bright,
I know my one stock bulb is close to useless.

I would be concerned about melting the fixture with the HID though.
Tried a 50W halogen bulb in place of the stock bulb on my LED tails,
and that didn't work out too well.
