Default Fogs: yellow bulbs vs film?

so the last set of yellowstars i had blew, looking to replace them. was wondering if there was any major differences between using a yellow output bulb or yellow film for the foglights.

i plan on doing the harness/bulb upgrade for the drving lamps and don't need anything too extreme for the fogs.

anyone have any input. thanks.

both. honestly. I'm using both and they're great. I tried just the yellow bulb, but the output wasn't as yellow as I wanted... it looked stock yellow like that you'll see on some older cars... but I wanted it very yellow so I went with a rockblocker yellow film. It's so JDM yo.

So far I love my PIAA H3s. If anything I could have adjusted them so as to not be pointing at the ground ten feet out.

i thought it was one or the other, using both doesn't kill the light output?

the coating on the bulb will decrease output and decrease bulb life.

the yellow film will decrease output more but your bulbs can live longer.

i have film.

WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?

i sincerely hope you never drive your car like that again- all you're doing is blinding people and decreasing your visibility for road hazards.

I did what Migo did and used both. It all just depends on how deep of a yellow you are shooting for....

I'm still waiting for my friend to do the Fog light mod and for the weather to get warmer cuz I'm probably gonna have to take off the bumper to find a mounting point for the ballast.

But as it stands right now, I'm running Nokya yellow lowbeams filmed fogs.
