Yellow Fog Light Bulbs or Lamin-X Yellow Vinyl?
 
My previous car was an is300, I loved the look of the white headlamps with yellow fogs... What actually would look and be the best - getting Nokya Yellow Fog Lamp Bulbs or Just applying Lamin-X Yellow Vinyl overlay to the fog lamp?

ADDED POLL: Which bulb has better output, reliability, and the closest color to the legendary lexus is300 yellow fogs?

Get HID 3000k H11 kit. Much better option if you want yellow fogs

This^! The laminate makes it look ricey and cheap IMO.

I would have to disagree. Does not make the car cheap if done properly. I love the classic yellow fogs from Lexus.

I find Putco jet yellow to be darker than Nokyas

I had the aero tect layovers after a year the bubbled up and cracked, I prefer yellow bulbs, not ricey just paying homage to the original IS300.

Yeah... Go for 3k hid for fogs. Bout install mine this afternoon.

Nice. These are like a golden yellow which looks super nice in person. I find hid yellow fogs to be quite overpowering at night time as well. Plus the film protects against rocks and crap on the road just like the clear bra I have on my headlights. To each their own though.

Ideally, you could go with HIDs--they wouldn't burn off the lamin-x over time.
I have 55W Putco bulbs (Halogen, non-HID), and people always ask me "which HID brand I have". They are the HID equivalent, as I'd like to say.

I had Nokya bulbs before: I'd pick Putco bulbs without hesitating over Nokya bulbs.
An HID kit is too much extra, unnecessary work! :D

I love my hoen bulbs. But i think putcos or hoens you can't go wrong. I don't like putting HID into something that it's not meant for. Glares too much for my liking.

I did the PIAA yellow bulbs.. A bit pricey but good quality JDM goodness. :-)

I installed a 3K HID kit on mine, output was horrible due to the housing not being designed for HID bulbs. I switched to the yellow bulbs CUTigters linked to and they are much better.

I don't want to go with HID, but considering bulbs... I did however see a few with the yellow vinyl and liked the idea plus it will protect it from any road debris

ISFpat 08-26-13 11:27 AM

I wouldn't get yellow vinyl just because it'll protect your fogs.. our fog lens is fairly strong and I'd say a good 90% or more of us doesn't have vinyl and never had any issues with our fog light lens ever cracking.
