Default Question about stock fog lamps

I notice that the IS300 has nice looking stock fog lights (like a yellow rally color). Are these HIDs or just yellow halogen bulbs (like nokya)?

they are regular halogen bulbs, the yellow comes from the film that attached to the lense, the jdm fog lamps have clear lenses

Thanks guys. When I look closely into the fog housings on the IS300 I don't see any yellow. That's why I was so confused. So just to be clear, there are 2 versions of the housing? The jdm and non-jdm fogs? And the jdm fog lamps are not yellow?

I'm surprised Lexus put a yellow film on their lens. Very cool. That's what I love about this car!
