Default Clear/yellow fog lights.

Just a simple question, i just change all my front lights including the front fog light.
Im using piaa for the front, m6 daytime lights, m4 for side markers, 9006 piaa for fog lights. It looks very nice to se all the front lights match the same. I just dont understand why people want to switch there clear fog lights for yellow fogs...

coz'
1) i have 6000k headlight and no halogen fogs can match that.
2) too luxury for me to buy another kit for 450 bucks
3) yellow, people know it's lexus up front
4) i already had another car with 6000k headlight and 6000k clear fogs
5) yellow fogs with 6000k headlight on my blue gs4 looks pretty unique imho
6) hid yellow fogs, now that would be even more interesting

I understand that the yellow fogs only come with OEM HIDs on Lexus. OEM Halogens come with clear fogs. Is that right? Maybe they want the OEM HID look.

Plus I hear that in real fog situations, yellow light is more visible or cuts thru the fog better than white light. Im sure someone in CL has experience with fog that can confirm this.

Lastly, it basically a preference thing.....Aye....whatever floats your boat, right?

Now i know the difference with HID and yellow fogs. Its just everybody has been changing there side markers to clean up the look, and when i saw lots of you posting "Will trade clear fogs for yellow fogs kinda mess with my mind. I said to myself then why they changing to yellow, if they like the bright white look.(LOLLOL)

I would like to convert my clear fogs to yellow on my "98 ES, is there an aftermarket lens that will replace the OEM? or do you just install yellow bulbs? Want to convert to HID and heard that they weren't the best in fog, I really like the fogs in Rominl's car, nice contrast.

thanks man your best bet would be using yello bulbs like the piaa ion. putting yellow lens is very hard. some people put yellow plastic over the lens, i don't think that looks good.

another thing you can try to do is to mount aftermarket yellow fog projectors within the stock housing, looks awesome if anytone really wants to do the work
