My friend's 6000k xenon with PIAA fog light.



It just makes the high beam and side marker very yellow.

The fog light is just a PIAA bulb. I will ask him the model number later tonight. He got his bulbs locally, I believe he paid around Cdn$600+taxes. You can get them from autolamp.com for cheaper.

after you find out the model number of the piaa bulb then if you can really hook it up on a good price I would like to pick up a set from you. They look like a perfect match.

Yeah I hate it too

I have tried a few different bulbs and the ones that I am stuck with now are too blue. Like cheap blue.

I have the 6000K's also. When I installed them, I aimed my headlights slightly lower just to be considerate to oncoming traffic. I've had them in for a week now and haven't been flashed once, so I'm assuming it's ok.
