Yeah.


On another note, I had the perfect night for testing my yellow fogs. Got the projector fogs off the car and inside, and worked on them while it poured. Then it cleared up, and I put the fogs/HIDs back in. Since it had rained, there was a lot of fog on the road. And all I can say is WOW, these things help you see EVERYTHING, even when there's fogs. It's nothing short of downright amazing.

Yellow driving glasses change the wavelength going to your eyes, not make the light you perceive darker.

See SWAT shooting glasses.

No reason people would burst into a dark building wearing something imparing their vision.

As for the bulbs.... Still waiting.

Just simply because I like the look of just the two inner rings on.

Eff going with HIDS you just waste money on something Nokya can do off of Ebay for waaaaay cheaper and looks GREAT.

I have always loved the Lexus contrast, yellow laminex is a baaaad idea it will always be yellow yeeech.

I have 6000K low beams and Nokya yellow fogs. I use them in the fog and they work pretty good. I would not recommend yellow high beams as high beams are the last thing you want to use in the fog. I am happy with the Nokya bulbs though when I have to use them. They work great and the price was right. Remember though, if you are running yellow fogs without fog, you can in most states get a ticket. If you run yellow lights for headlights....most of the time, you will be owned by the local cops, just like very high K hids...and crazy demon eyes or bright blue halos. Red and blue are emergency colors...cops do not like that.

BTW....every winter, I sport a tow hook also...LOL. In Colorado winter in the snow without an Xi, good to have on when my Jeep comes to pull it out. Another note regarding the tow hook....do make sure if your car is towed on a flat bed, make sure you use the one in your tool box so you do not jack up your alignment.

Yeah, I think it's illegal to have you fogs on without fog or in the city. I only put them on when I'm in a poorly-lit area with fog, which is the only time you should have them on. Whenever I see a car driving around before dusk with its parking lights and fogs on, but no headlights, I pray they get pulled over.

I agree, also 4300K is not going to be the yellow he wants. If I remember the Nokya are 2500K. They are more of a yellow fog light like used in Europe. So far I have had no problems with my bulbs. I expect the hoen ones will cost quite a bit more than the Nokya. Just my 2 cents. And the higher wattage did not melt anything either.

6000k Low Beam and 3000k HID Fogs. All I can say is...HID Yellow Fogs are the best in my opinion. I can drive at night with just the fogs on. The white Low Beam mixed with the yellow Fogs light up the entire freeway.

I live in LA and I haven't had any problems with cops.

I think I'm going to put my Narva gold bulbs from my fogs to my high beam. They aren't as yellow as the Nokya but they illuminate the road pretty well.

Those Nokya bulbs looks like a deep bright yellow.

Question Best Place to Buy Nokya Bulbs

Now that I'm sold on the Yellow Fogs!
Where can I pick up some Nokya's??? Ebay?
Do any local auto parts shops carry them? Autozone?

Also I'm assuming H7 bulb is the High Beam Bulb?
and the 9006 is the fog light bulb type?

Thank You!!!!
