Does anyone know if they make a hid bulb that replaces the factory yellowish bulb?

Yes, they make all kinds of hid kits and led bulbs. I don't know what bulb size the fog light is, that's really all the info you need. H11 is what I want to say the bulb is.

Just recommended one of these kits to a user the other day and he already went ahead and purchased it:

Factory White H11 5000k HID Light Conversion Kit

I recommend the stealth series ballast. 5000K to match your factory HID's, 6000K white with a hint of cyan

I actually went the other direction. These yellows are 3k and look great paired with the HIDs. They are very visible at night. Purchased from Hoen.

I believe you currently have halogen bulbs, those don't come with ballasts. You'll need to order a whole HID conversion kit (bulbs, ballasts, harness, look at the link I posted). If you order them make sure to aim your lights correctly after installation.

Sounds like a lot of work. Hoen has a pretty close match that doesn't require an HID conversion.
35 bucks!

I believe the OP's whole intention of this thread is to 'get rid of the yellowish OEM bulbs.'

Yes. That company sells different temp bulbs for a close match.
fYI: white fog lights are horrible for visibility. Especially for rain and snow.

Dood, wow, just get the hell out of these forums. You're f*cking up man. You can't just lie ALL of the time like you do.





If you can't tell I'm being sarcastic and maybe a bit bored.

I would like to see them, if the match the hid headlights I'll order them 4 sure! I would really prefer to order just the lights though and not the ballast. It will be an easier sell to to wife considering she doesn't know yet. Lol.

For 30 bucks, the HOEN's look nice. If the yellows were in stock, I would have ordered them.

Here's a few of the comparison between the stockers and the HOEN. HOEN is on the left.

I didn't get any pictures looking towards the front end with one stock bulb and one HOEN bulb. Fail.

Hows the light output on the road? Any improvement in terms of visibility?

It was 30 plus shipping...cant remember how much shipping was...a few bucks or so. They're the xenonmatch bulbs size h11 I believe


I did it mainly for aesthetics because I wanted the fogs to match the headlights at night. You won't notice it too much if it all compared to the output of the hids

No but that's why I went with these bulbs....because I didn't want to mess with an hid kit. Just wanted something simple to plug and play

DDMTuning is a Chinese company that thrived on the HID market years ago but there are much better [modern] HID kits available today. Don't go the cheap route, you'll regret it.

Yeah I haven't bought em yet, I was asking around for long range fogs on this forum and they were suggested to me.

What other good quality kits would you recommend though?

HID Extra | HID Kits | Premier Performance Lighting -> Uses modern technology, 1yr warranty, fast+free shipping, solid prices. I've installed a few of these kits, great quality.

https://www.theretrofitsource.com -> Best HID's on the martket IMO. Pricey, but can't beat them.

You got them from The Retrofit Source right?

Forgot to mention, I recommend the stealth series ballasts from HID Extra.

Thank you very much! I too want them only for aesthetics so they match my hids, the factory headlights do a great job by them selves.

If aesthetics is your primary goal, try LED bulbs. $10 for a pair and they run forever
