Fog Light Suggestions

Does anyone have a recommendation for quality fog lights that compliment the stock headlights and LUX Angle eyes for a 335i? The stock fogs are killing the look of the car especially with the Angel Eyes.

How much motivation do you have? If you want something that will be *dead-on*, then your best bet is to retrofit the F15 X5 LED Fogs. I'm seriously considering doing it.

I brought my 6500K's down to Morristown BMW yesterday night - the technicians are going to put one in one side and one in the other and drive around a bit.

I'm letting them decide among the shop stewards and technicians which one looks best

Shoot- I forgot all about the Mtecs- those were pretty damn good fog lights back in day... I think I had Cosmo blue 4500 K's or something like that.

If you want fog lights that don't function as fog lights, just look "cool" then get the 7500K. If you want fogs that will actually improve inclement weather visibility then you want something with much lower color temperature.

you can get GP thunders in an H8 35w for $15 on amazon. I also recommend yellow fogs too. I have a blue car and decided to switch to nokya 2500k 35w h8s and love them. they help at night and in fog too unlike the 7500k bulbs.

if you have xenon headlights, look to get h3s in 7500k too for your corner lights to match the AEs and Xenons too.
