I think purple would look awesome--but only if you could get the Xenons to match. Until then....white will look better than yellow--especially at night!

I read somewhere that they are really bluish... so don't know if you going to get in trouble for that... Pass certain point on the chart.. it will become ... white..blue.. kinda purple.. bhe dimmer it gets...

I am going to experiment with a 8500K H8 bulb.. (waiting for it to arrive)

hey SHIN, u think H11 HID will be okay for the fog light???

thanks in advance!!

u rock btw :rocks: :rocks: :rocks:

Wouldn't H11 run too hot? I thought it had a different wattage. Am I wrong?

Afaik H11 != H8, I highly doubt it will work.

This is what I thought--the error would be a big pain in the butt--thanks for clarifying Shinchan.

BTW--any update on the 3rd mod you were doing that was "light" related? I am curious to see what you have cooked up.

HID fogs defeats the purpose of fogs and will probably get oncoming drivers really pissed if you keep them on all the time.

I think Shinchan was only able to use an H8 on the fog lights--if you use a bright white, it would probably look pretty close to HID, and as others have mentioned, not piss off others in oncoming traffic.

I want to do the hid fog.. but thats an expensive mod.. if it did not work and trigger the warning in dashboard.

If it did work.... then thats a small price to pay.. but i would soo tick off by the constant error msg on my dashboard..

If you want to spend money on hid fog... I think the first thing to change is the D1S bulb....
