Looking to upgrade the fogs...just wondering what color I should choose. I'm leaning towards 3000k Yellow. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Hey,

If you are going to convert the fogs to HID bulbs and ballasts I have to suggest the 3000k. These are VERY yellow and the color is great for fog, wet weather, and snow driving. I just converted mine to HID this past weekend and after seeing the results I wondered why I hadn't done this sooner! Here are some crappy pictures I took with my camera phone:

This two pictures below are with a new HID bulb on the left and the "old" Hella Yellowstar bulb on the right---





Here are some more pictures of my setup. I'm running 3000k HID fogs and 6000k in my low beams. This upgrade is amazing....I like it just as much as my kvw100 feature!




Hope you like it!


Mike

Looks great. Yeah, I'm looking to get HID conversion, ballast/bulb etc. The price is right for sure. I found a good write up on vortex. Might be a good winter time project.

I was thinking to go with the 3000K yellow, but I did regular 4300K instead since not too bad here in CA during winter.
Here are some shots:

I'm lovin' it!


Very nice indeed. It adds so much light to the road in front of you, without being obnoxious.
