Just what are you after, bling or increased visibility? If you want to get the most lighting performance from the fogs in poor weather/reduced visibility conditions, HIDs are the worst thing you can put in them. The more white/blue content in the light, the more glare and less penetration they will produce. This is why the most effective foglights are usually yellow, the yellow light has far better penetration. So, if you want the best possible performance from your fogs you should be looking at yellow bulbs (such as Narva Golds) rather than HIDs.
