judging from these posts, putco seems to be a good choice. i currently have stock gs yellow fogs, and was wondering if putco bulbs will help make it more yellow.

thanks.

I like the Putco 9006 Jet Yellow for my fog so much that I brought a pair of Putco 9005 Jet Yellow for my DRL too! So yellow.

65W 9005 Jet Yellow safe for my 55W OEM harness?

A yellow light does in fact cut through dense fog more effectively than a whiter light. Yellow emits at a lower frequency than whiter light therefore cutting through the fog much better. This is why when you turn on your brights when driving through fog it only exacerbates the problem giving you a massive glare on the road ahead. It's not only an aesthetic upgrade to go to yellow but a functional one as well. A wise investment.

The lights which are shown above are the best yellow lights. I have researched on this topic for 1 year and then i came to this conclusion.

Steve,
What is the difference between 9005 and 9005xs? I have a 2011 IS350 and am looking to change my high beams to jet yellow.

Thanks,

Mike

Hi Mike,

It's a different base. You would not need to get the "XS" for your vehicle.

I want them to be really yellow and some ppl told me i should go with HID but its too expensive. I have read the previous posts stating that putco yellow are really good.
