Why in the world would you want blue fog lights? I sure hope no one has done this.

LW///M3 05-29-2007 11:04 PM

why blue? you have an m3 buddy...blue screams rice

m3_tofast 05-30-2007 12:01 AM

I think its tight. Has anyone used these before are they worth it ?

deafboy 05-30-2007 12:40 AM

I have the 6000k ones....

and dont do it.... :rofl:

the light output is horrid.....

they are more meant for turn signals....

m3_tofast 05-30-2007 12:43 AM

But will the 8000K actually light up blue ?

deafboy 05-30-2007 12:47 AM

Im doing it for HID look

deafboy 05-30-2007 01:37 AM

m3_tofast 05-30-2007 02:35 AM

But I dont want to ruin the current setup. I just want basic HID Look Bulbs.

Not true.... LEDs can get any color you want. My fogs are an exact match (color wise) to HIDs. Its just that the light output blows

Google HOEN. They make very high quality xenon-match bulbs that have decent output. If you want something functional go with a 3,000K bulb... sort of yellowish.

LEDs can get you the color but they certainly will not put any usable light on the road. And they will never match the light output of a true HID kit.

oh and op, you drive a bmw.. please remove "tight" from your vocabulary (unless using the word as in a tight seal or something along those lines)

Personally I see no point in wasting money on a cheap hid kit setup for my fog lamps. At that point (if it comes) I will just buy matching halogen bulbs. They wont be close but I would get a superwhite color to them, and save my money.

HID fogs make pretty much zero sense, but hey thats just me.

If you want to upgrade your light output, upgrade your low beams to either a projector retrofit, or oem HID upgrade.

i don't see why it makes no sense....

To increase light output, I bought P46s with 6k xenon bulbs... then, to match my fogs, I went with 6k xenon bulbs in my fogs as well.

The resulting product gives more light output and looks damn sexy :evil:

I'll be getting HIDs in August when I get back....
