Default 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

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

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.

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!

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 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

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.
