Yellow ones came on GS's with factory HID headlamps, so that would make them more rare. As for desirability, which set do you like more? If you want yellow HID fogs use the clear ones with a 3000k bulb, the factory yellow fogs just use a filter.

To each his own?

Not sure why but most build cars that came to Canada had the yellow fogs (handful didnt) and most of our interiors are black. In the states it seems to be rare(r) to find a factory equipped yellow fog GS I'm vast numbers.

With that said they're readily available, from scrap yards, new old stock, or the JDM importers as ALL of those had the yellow.

Yellow are more "rare"

But those with yellow want clear, and clear want yellow.

I had a yellow set and I traded it for clear + cash

Yellow fogs look a bit weird when you put in 5K or 6K HID inside them. Had the yellow ones but broke off the yellow glass to get them clear.

I have both but like the yellow ones way more. Especially with 3000k HIDs in them.

I see a lot of yellows around here. And also other cars that put 3000k hid's in their cars as well, so I prefer clear with matching HID to the low beams.

Yellow adds character. Get yellow. Clear is good too if you put HID. Either color. At the end. Whatever floats your boat. Yellow fever.
