What do you guys run in your fog lights ?

Did you go with HIDs or did you go with LEDs ? The (stock)yellowish is annoying...

Please post link to product.

I ran HPB HID Kit at 4300K to match the OEM Low beam, couldn't be happier.

The HID put out a lot of light. LED technology is advancing close to the output of HID nowadays but I'd still go with the HID @ 4300K for the most output.

I can't post links in non vendor sections but you know where to find our site I'm sure.

Well they are in the fog lights, so they only put light below the bumper line.

I never had any issues with people getting upset from what I can tell.

Another vote for HPB HIDs

I use their 6000k to match my headlights

Never had a problem with them or had anyone on the road visibly upset at their brightness

With either HID or LED you will need to code out cold and warm bulb checks

I bounce back and forth between 5000k HIDs and Hyper Yellow Nokya Halogens. Depends on the season. I tend to get bored with either look if they go for too long.

Halogen Osram Night Breakers. I don't want to be "that guy." I don't want to void my warranty with any aftermarket wiring besides.

I'm soon going to go with a HID kit from The Retrofit Source for $150. I've had amazing experience with them so I'll go that route. Here is the link for anyone wondering.

No flickering, you have to code out the fogs
