Cobra termi fog light color?

So I have a true blue mustang gt with an aftermarket 03/04 cobra bumper. I had the stock bulbs in them but one shattered assuming it's from the water that got in. The other one I guess was bad. Idk. Didn't really look at that one. But I can't decide on a color. I like the amber but I would imagine a blue would look so nice with LED amber running lights on the head lights. I'll be purchasing a specially designed LED bulb so it will project light so I'm not worried about that. Any suggestions are welcome!

Yellow is the optimal color for foglights as it is the color that cuts through fog the best. The bluer you get the less functional you get if you are worried about that. Here are mine with Nokya Hyper Yellows.



Please forgive the disaster that is my garage.

Yup, not only is the 8K color range way dimmer than even an OEM Halogen, but the blue color is bad for cutting through fog. Even 6k is not great, after 5k the lumens start to just fall off a cliff. To top it off, if you are talking about a HID in a reflector housing then the light is going to be scattered/hotspotted and not be optimal at all for viewing. There is a reason a lot of high end luxury cars still use yellow halogens in the fogs while using a HID setup in the headlights. They just WORK.

Also... there is 0 reason to run foglights unless you actually are in the conditions that require them. They give you no extra visibility during regular night driving and its actually not recommended to run them because the light in front of the car can take your eyes away from the focus of the lo-beams which is where you are supposed to be looking.

If its just for looks, then do whatever you like.

Personally, i hate it when someone if following me on the highway with blue lights... It's just distracting and I immediately think the dude is a ******.

I guess blue fogs wouldnt be as bad as blue headlights.... but either way, blue lights arent very functional.

Blue lights are non functional and half the people running 8000k+ blue HIDs are doing it in reflector housings and blinding the living hell out of everyone. Thare are multiple VERY bright halogens culminating in the HIR. The HIR is 75% of an OEM HID and pure bright white omfg bright. You can run them in any aftermarket housing that takes a 9005 or 9006 bulb. I'm getting a set for my Expy soon actually since that is what it takes stock. If you don't want to get an aftermarket housing then I'd run Philips Xtreme 9007s or OSRAM (not sylvania) Silverstars.

Funny thing is the HIR bulb is brighter than half the cheapo DDM/VVME/Crap HID kits out there and its a Halogen.

I rarely use my fogs just because I don't want the bulbs to go out

Personally I think it's subjective to your preferences. If it's for popularity then go with the stock or amber. I like the blue ones and they work fine. And they don't blind anyone coming towards me. I just bought the bulbs and they pop right in from the a fore mentioned site.

DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT put crappy HIDs in them for a "cool" color. Your car will look like ****, and the lights will perform like ****, and every single other person on the road will want to get out of their cars and beat your face into the ground.

That pic makes my eyes hurt from here... if you have HIDs in any reflector housing you deserve a fix it ticket and a summons, period. Sorry if that makes me an ***. Doesn't help that those of us who have had PRK or Lasik (lots of ppl) have extra light sensitivity.

Yep, and ppl think they aren't blinding anyone else because they aren't being flashed. That's because enough ppl know about HIDs or "those super bright lights" (as my mother calls them) and realize they aren't HI-beams so they don't flash.

I have 5000k hids in fogs and headlights I also aimed the lights down. It looks and functions good. I do most city driving and 99% of the roads are one way and dived center barrier of trees. As far as someone getting out of their car to kick my face in, that is what my glock 30 that I appendix carry is for. so good luck kicking my face in over some damn lights in your face

You can't aim hids down enough to where they don't glare in a reflector housing. Period. Hids in a reflector housing housing are in the same category as underbody neons and fart cans.

I also have hid 8000k up top and just yellow halogen bulbs down low, all my friends that ride in front me at night never told me they have a issue with it a night, but I also live around dark country roads so it's pretty common in my area.

Cobra termi fog light color?

HIDs in a halogen housing scatters light over the road, you can't aim scattered light. That is why real HID housings actually look crisp and clear and good lines because they project light properly. The crappy HIDs just look like a blue blur

To each there own I don't like how any of the hid housings look. And anything over 6000k looks like rice. 5000k is white no blue. As far as being legal tinted headlights are illegal almost anywhere however hids in stock housings are illegal in some states not others. And like I said where I drive the roads are one way so on coming traffic is not affected and everyone has tinted windows... Anyway if you like if it I say do it everyone has there own opinion what looks good

I don't agree with the lights, I mean obviously or I would have them. I have normal lights because I don't want to do it the "wrong" way. There is definitely a correct way to do it, and throwing in any bulbs in your stock housing isn't correct. I believe in do it right the first time.

But if you wanna beat my face in for having lights like that... Meet the 9
