    Default Installed HID fogs......

    Finally got around to installing the fog HID kit I got for xmas. Easiest install yet. Just looking for some opinions. The company sent me 3k(yellow) instead of the 6k(white blueish). I have the 6k in low and highs already. I am partial as I have not seen the 3k at night but I they looked okay in the day. What does everyone else think? I can't exchange the bulbs b/c it is 30 days after we received them. It is only $38 shipped for new bulbs so not to worried about that. Also removed the lower air dam shield in the process, looks a lot better IMO.

    Am highly considering now that I have had a chance to see them at night. Makes a good contrast.

    All of my PIAA lights that I have are 3800K (yellow), and It was hard for me to get used to them at night. They almost play tricks on your eyes, but I found they are the best for fog snow, and rain.

    Default Supplier?

    Just wondering where you were able to get the fog light HIDs. I've been looking for awhile but they dont seem to be a very popular bulb. Don't know why GM would pick such a random bulb for the fogs.

    I'm still trying to decide if I want all my lights to match (8K Highs, Lows, & Fogs) or get the 3K fogs with the 8k Highs & Lows...
