Impreza GC8 85W H3 bulbs?

How did the Hella yellows work out for you?
I've been using the PIAA ION for almost two years until one blew out last week. I'm trying to decide If I want PIAA's again or Hella.

Are the bulbs multi colered when looking at the fog lights or is it yellow (ex. Lexus fog lights)? That's how the PIAA's were and I didn't really like that, People would tell me that my foglights looked greenish even though for me the road was lit up yellow.
Thanks

the hellas r not as yellow as the Piaa ion yellow(what im using), a little pale but still yellower than other bulbs i've tried. and they dont look green like the Piaas. a good, cheaper alternative for the Piaas IMO.

just the Lamin-X itself only turns the light pale yellow, yellow bulbs will make the lights more yellow. im always trying to get my fogs as yellow as possible

Thanks
the reason for that is because the reflectors are so large...the "color" of the bulbs arent concentrated.....which is why it is nearly impossible to match the heads to the fogs....the lamin x is a good fix for that i guess..
