Another Fog light poll....

I currently have the MTEC 4750k fog bulbs in and they dont match the OEM xenon very well so I am thinking about changing it up.

My problem is that the 4750k matches Predator ICE angel eyes pretty well, but not the OEM low beams....

I am trying to decide whether I want to go with MTEC 4350k which would match with the 4300k OEM low beams, or if I should just stop trying to match and go with 2500k yellows....

What do yall think?

yeah. It will be really hard to have a non HID light match an HID light. I tried a few times and it never really looked right.

LOL, yeah put them on today and went outside and compared a couple times in the last hour or so.

I just always talk crap about people who have fog lights that dont match the low beams. It is dumb to me (no offense). So because of that I need to change them....

Obviously the yellow is a different story since it is a functionality type of thing....

Since they match the Predator ICE angel eyes do you think that will make it match better with the low beams on as well?

True...

I might end up going with a conversion kit, but I really didn't want to do that....

You haven't steered me wrong yet so I will probably go with your advice....

Anyone else?

Yea, I bought the Xenisis, waiting to get my car back to put them on, not sure what they are going to look like.

If your getting those in pretty soon, I'd wait and check them out, they probably do look pretty good with the ICE

hehe, I just went through the same probelm in my own mind lmao...

I do have the mtec 4350's and they do match the HID's nicely, however for some reason I keep switching back to the 2500 yellows lol..
that is what I have in right now. Have switched them back and forth twice already..

maybe my pics will help a bit... sorry for the poor quality, I'll try to take a better one tonight..

IMO, from my last car, the 4750's even though they seem brighter, also to me seem a bit blueish/greenish.....

the yellows are bright at night and it's kind of cool how the street in front of you lights up bright white with some yellow in it.... then again it now looks like an old IS300 at night from the front lol....

That is the only reason why I am shying away from yellow. I want it to look like a BMW and not a lexus....

I think that its a matter of actually how much fog you get in your area, a 4350K looks good but sucks in fog, but a 2500K works excellent in fog but looks not so good so its style vs performance...i voted yellow cause my area is quite foggy....

I dont have too much fog, I am going more for looks then performance. I want it to look good and match well.

I am tempted to wait to see how good these match with the Predator ICE since remmib's car has this exact setup and it looks like this.... (disregard left side, obviously)

what kind of fogs are those? those match perfectly. very nice but when low beam turns on might look ugly right? Did he clear his corner or something? Or using a white corner bulb?
