Ok, so I had 8k fogs to match my low beams and had a slight issue with them that involved running over the control units (long story stort, the sticky stuff on them aint that great), so im tryin to decide if i should get the same color or maybe the yellow 3k ones. Lemme know your ideas!

reference pic from when i had the 8k's in them:

I think they look better matching. But yellow is more functional in the rain/ fog/ snow.

Yellow is better if you live in a foggy area, it penetrates fog better. Having said that, I have 3000K fogs and wish I had gotten at keast 1000K hotter, they are very yellow. IIRC, 6000K is optimal for best visibility, there is absolutely no advantage in going above 6000K, unless you just have to have blue or purple lights.....

the 3k is unbeatable in winter driving conditions. hands down.

that being said, daily driving you'll probably get more light output running a 5k/6k. 8k is dumb to me unless its a 55w, too dark of a color, begins hurting your light output anyways by 6k, why take it any further?

eh I bought 8k the first time i got them so ill either do yellow or match the 8ks, I think they have sufficient light output for my needs anyway
