Default HID fog light

just want to know which HID fog light would give off an purplish greenish yellowish look at the side depending the angle you look at it, but if you look at it dead on, its almost white

just wondering, saw one today, my friend said its HID, but dunno who makes them

it all depends on the lins...that sounds like a projector lens....if you really want HID fogs, a set of hella micro DE Xenon would be the easiest way to go...although they run like 720.....you are better off buying a set of projector foglights, and an h3 HID kit

I would concour that they are project fogs with halogen bulbs in them, rather than HID fogs. Most of the HID aux-lighting that I have seen are in the driving pattern. If anyone had an HID projector fog, I would have to guess that it was PIAA or Hella.

they could have been these

or this one

they are the only ones that are available in the fog pattern that I have seen.

the first one is in the projector format that would give that lighting effect that you first mentioned.

CN=HID light already produces a lot of foreground illumination that blinds the eye for seeing at longer distances. Since that light already scatters more in bad weather than halogen light, and HID foglight is not beneficial.

But for more detail, you really should read the article. That and his other comment on HIDs in general have kind of put me off those lights altogether, at least until they can change the output to more closely match halogen light, which is much easier on the eye at night.

disaster999: Just so you know, the factory foglights physically cannot fit an HID bulb. The bulb is too long. You would need to buy new lamps as well.

Hey, wow, Stern updated his site regarding HID kits, showing how HID retrofits are not good even for projectors that use halogen bulbs.

First update in a year or two I've seen.
