Fog Lights to Match Orion V4s?

What fog light bulb would match the Orion V4 AEs? I've tried GP Thunder 7500k and wasn't impressed. They looked too greenish for my linking.

Stick to halogen bulbs GP thunders would probably work well. If you stick an HID bulb in your fog light housing it would just throw glare everywhere. Blinding other drivers and defeating the whole purpose of a fog light.

Can you get projector fog light housings and bulbs just like the projector headlights? I've seen them before, but I don't know anything about quality and price.

Only way you're going to match is with HID. I'd say get 8k for perfect match. I have the HPB 6k kit and it matches pretty well but not perfect

Looks great!

I see this is on a LCI M sport bumper.... Would they have this for a pre-LCI stock bumper? I did a quick check of ebay and the only thing I found were some fog light that had halos in them.

The best match I found was the mtek 4750k, it's dim and doesn't look too great during the day since it's a halogen, but it was the closest match.

You could try getting a small projector and retrofitting it into your fog light housing. If I find some cheap fog light housings in the future I'm going to retrofit a projector into them and see how it works out.
