I'm considering changing the bulbs in my fogs to something brighter and yellow. I've read lots of great things about Hoen, but they don't make yellow H3's. And since the H7's for the highs are in the foglight section of the site, I'm not sure I want them in my highs...also the price is higher than I'd like to pay for bulbs, unless I'm actually buying HID's.

My question is concerning Nokya's Actic Yellow H3's for my fogs and Nokya's Arctic Yellow H7's for my highs. The fact that I can purchase both of these for the price of 1 set of Hoens has me interested. Also, does anyone have yellow as their high beams?

Also, what exactly does this mean? I don't my harness to melt!

Output 12V 55W Actual = 70W Brightest

Any experience with these bulbs? I'm not going to do anything until my current H3's or H7's burn out, but I definitely want yellow in my fogs and I'm considering yellow in the highs as well. Thanks.

Not right now. Day or night?

No rush. Either or both would be cool. Whatever you feel like sharing.

i was thinking yellow fogs too, but instead of bulbs i installed yellow tint. I didnt like it so i peeled it off. bulbs would be a better idea. i would like to see what it would like for yellow highs and fogs.
