    Default Matching foglight bulbs to HID's

    Have got the HID's and am annoyed that the fog lights are still 'yellow'

    Have tried the Halfords Ice-white H3's but they are still yellow. What are you using?

    Or am I the only person here who is pedantic enough to want to match my fog light colour to my headlights?

    Show off.

    I very rarely use the front fog lights but for foggy or snowy days, it would be nice for them to match.

    Would these be whiter than standard yellow bulbs?

    No space for the ballasts with the V6 lump under the bonnet, and no-one ever sees the full beams so it's a bit pointless lol

    I had a set of HID's in the main beam of my old Astra Coupe and what a difference it made to them, it was like daylight for miles!

    I will eventually get a set in the Vec, once I have sorted out the levelling thing, one motor went so disconnected it, replaced it and now I think the other motor has gone!!

    And got to sort the condensation on NS light, had it off today, dried it out, hair dryer'd it, drained it, cleaned it etc. After re-fitting it, it went cloudy again so have dropped a silica gel sachet in to see if that helps.

    The full beam was funny, they (obviously) do what the dips do, come on bright then dim and take a few seconds to 'warm up', not good for a flash but amazing for visibility!!
