Yellow fogs or no?

I'm thinking of doing yellow fogs but I'm on the fence. My grill is black but my rear badge and trim is chrome and I'm intimidated by the shadowline DIY and don't like the badge black. Ive considered going back to chrome kidneys and also considered darker corners. Some suggestions would be great

Never would I do a facelift conversion. Shadowline trim freaks me out because it looks tough. I don't want to paint the headlights because people have told me the lighting quality will change because of it

Oh but OP, don't do the dogs unless you switch bumpers. I think yellow dogs only look nice on M3 bumpers. Here's my car with yellow fogs and high beam bowls.

I'm thinking go back to chrome, deal with the haze, get some ambers instead of my clears and do yellow fogs...

yellow and chrome...If you're leaving other chrome accents might as well leave the grill chrome too. I'm OCD about things matching like that.

I just got rid of my 2500k fogs and got a 6000k hid fog kit with projector fogs to match my xenons. It looks a lot cleaner than yellow IMO
