Angel Eyes Done - What about Front Fogs?

So I updated my E92 Angel eyes and was just wondering what everyone typically does about the front fogs, leave yellow or also change? What do the LCI cars have?

I changed the angel eyes to white led, but the fogs were white anyway!

I am sure that they are just the standard HB4 bulb!?

I just left my fogs with standard bulbs, not like they're on much anyway. Also I have read that the yellow light helps to penetrate the fog better than white light.

I got them off a BMW Indy here in Ireland who imports lots of Angel eyes for various BMW models. I actually trialed this set for him to ensure it was error free, etc... He was charging around 100 for a set.

I believe he imports from the US, here are some pics of the box they came in. The Model number listed on the box was: LD-8H8V W.

Yeah kind of where I am at but it does look a little odd when they are on.

On the newer LCI models are the fogs white? I am not sure if user ssc330d above is LCI or not?

I cant say for certain if they had been changed previously - but why change the fogs to white and leave the angel eyes yellow?

I know that the bulbs themselves have "HB4" stamped on them, which is the standard bulb as far as I am aware?

Dont use them , they are rated low power (v shape). I had these style for a year and a half. Rach bulb puts out no more than 6watss and if u go n buy on evay they are 54.99. Instead go for the 4 chip 20w (each) cree led bulbs from ebay. I have a set cost me 50ish pounds and they are very bright.

What still annoys me is, a stupid halogen bulb gives a yellow light but illiminates both angel eyes brightly, where as all these people making V LED's, 4x6w or whatever cree bulbs, still can't illuminate the outer angel eye the same as the inner...wtf?? has anyone found a fix for this on PRE LCI cars???? I want both halos BRIGHT!!
