actually functional and looks good.
Yellow supposed to be better during foggy/rainy days compared to plain
white ones, thats why some luxury manufacturers add yellow foglight option.

I'll will provide additional review as I gain more experience with these.
I just got it installed few hours ago, and have not driven it since then.
interesting... so fog/driving lights you want a yellow hue...

regular headlights, the whiter xeon gas takes the cake.

doesn't mean there are enough hi-tech R&D facilities from companies to put them all to work. Bet. at least 20,000 of them are boxing NIKE shoes in Guangzhou.

The other problem on our shore is lets take that US 6,000 figure. How many of those are those 'International students' that come here, get US taxpayer subsidized education... only to then fly back to their country and be a king there based on his prized 'Western' degree?

The biggest threat is 'foreign' investments into China. All these Western businesses setting up shop in China to make money only adds to China's might in the future (a Communist country, mind you)
but all these pioneering businessmen will be long dead by the time China explodes. They're just pocketing the riches while they're alive, but their grandkids... they'll see. It's inevitable as when USA took the world crown away from Europe, away from England, Germany. We had a long run.

And over there, China is surpassing Japan in economic power. That's a long overdue symbolic blow I bet the Chinese Gov't and some people are so happy about since Japan has almost always felt were superior to China + Japan's savage occupation of China + Korea (which US the world police - looked the other way until Japan bombed Pearl Harbor).

Lost of Investors are now investing in starting businesses out it in China. The benefit to their communism is that its currently stable. They wouldnt do anything to mess that up because then they know the world would pull out of China and they will be poor again.

got some nokya's. they're junk. installed drivers side, ok. installed passenger side, the built in clip breaks, and sinks inside, so bulb doesn't stay tight on the socket. took it back out, and installed the stock one back in. then i go to reinstall the stock bulb on the drivers side, and that bulb that i thought was ok, is now loose. same problem. i hate bulbs made in korea! i'm sure not all the nokya's are like this, think i got batch of defective ones. they had a really nice yellow color though.

Looks badass! I just installed a set of MTECH yellow foglights myself. I love the contrast the yellow adds to the cool xenon blue.

I installed a set on my Jeep Gr. Cherokee for the fog over here in the Azores. Unbelievable difference. Before could not see 10 feet in front of hood, now turn headlights off and run the yellow bulbs, as bright as the headlights with minimal reflection back into my eyes. Plus, I upgraded the lights and wiring harness so they are crazy bright.. very nice fog bulbs indeed, and no need to upgrade that wiring because of the 55w draw.

Your right OP, the pic does not do the bulbs justice. We will upgrade the fog bulbs in the 335i once she is in the garage.

The yellow looks really good I think. Downside is it reminds of lexus.

I probably will reinstall the yellows again when i get the 8000k xenons. IMO, the contrast looks really good at night.
