Default BE fog color

Ok so i have the projector fogs on the BE and was wondering how i could get them to be yellow. Can i just buy yellow bulbs? do i need to get a film/tint for them? i tried making them hyperwhite but when i installed the bulbs there was barely a difference if any at all which makes me think the lens it shines through changes the color slightly. any thoughts?

The Hella's aren't as yellow as I had hoped, and don't have the intensity I wanted either. You might be better off getting a brighter clear bulb and using yellow RockBlocker over the lens to get the color.

They're being compared to HID's in the pic above.. so keep that in mind when comparing the Hella's for color.

Yellow bulb you buy out there will not produce yellow enough light output.

since you have 03-04, then you should try that one. cutting around your fog and replace the glass with IS300 yellow projector fog.

light output pic below, well not a cheap upgrade, but result is worth every penny. just think this as one time investment, you can have yellow fog for as long as you own you car.

Hope this would help.

another option is to get a nice set of Narva gold or other "+55" high quality yellow bulbs from www.danielsternlighting.com . Dan knows his stuff and only sells the best quality bulbs.

If you can find cholorchrome and you know someone who shoots paint, you can stain the glass yellow like the IS fogs pictured. More info on Danielsternlighting.com

Good find !!

Where is that cholorchrome paint ? Do you know if they work with regular paint gun ?

BTW, IS300 glass is not stained yellow. the whole glass was made of yellow glass.

Here's some cholorchrome:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/POR-1...spagenameZWDVW

It's by POR-15. This stuff is very staining. It will utterly destroy your clothing and such. It deeply stains the glass, and chrome and anything you put on it. My friend was telling me about some POR-15 product he used, and he dropped a screw driver onto the piece from 4ft up and it didn' even scratch through the finish at all.

I wonder how hard it is to get to the projector units of subaru fog lights and JDM lights (if it's as simple as baking them like headlights). I think this mod would look best if just the projectors were stained and not the entire housing, especially if you're going the headlight route as well.

Great find. Thanks again, I am going to get those and see how they stain the glass.

As for projector fog cover, sealant will not get softened when heated, you need to cut them open

Sorry I don't have any write up yet, well, you need to replace the lens from clear to yellow. it has to be cut open, play around with it, then you will see.

+1 for the Hella yellowstars....

However, I opted for the 85W instead of the normal 55W. big difference IMHO...

The 85W don't get to hot? I didn't think the wiring would handle 85W.

If not how much and where can I get them?

I'm running 100w highs in my JDM projector lights.

Wiring can be upgraded.

Nice, I wish they made projectors for the BE, the stock beams spread out too wide.

I want to go with 85 watt foglight bulbs, but I am afraid of melting the plastic cap on the back.

I also wonder how they'd work in the headlights, as my yellowstar headlights are decent, butnot anywhere near the output of my hella 500's were.
