    I previously had Chameleon Yellow/Green fog light tint wrap (see my garage for pictures) but decided to switch them out for a simple Yellow tint. Even though the tint was disappointing in quality, it turned out alright. It does have a slight "Orange peel" effect to it if you get really close to it. from a foot away its not noticeable.

    Looking at possibly switching out my fog lights. any one have recommendations for LED's? i was looking at the colour change ones which seem cool.. if anyone has those (3000k-6000k) let me know how they are.

    Edit: clarifications

    looks good! how much where they?/do you have a link to them? i really like the look of the LED low beams but everyone seems to think they don't project as nice on the road since the housing isnt "made" for it.. how are you finding it? in the rain and such.. i swapped my halogen low beams for the sylvania silverlight ultra .. they are somewhat brighter than stock but i would love to match the while LED look and better brightness.. as you can see from my picture there the ultras still look stock yellow-ish..

    I went with Sirius for the Fogs - Match the stock DRL nicely - For my Low Beam, I went with The Retrofit Source Morimoto HID at 5500k - Make sure you get the H11B bulb

    yeah, the sirius look good in the fogs and a much cheaper way out than the morimoto fogs, but I love the beam pattern they put out.

    The price difference between the Sirius and Morimoto isn't that much and probably worth the extra $15. I chose Sirius because I'll eventually change fogs to Projector HID.

    I like the price of the Sirius LED's .. since im in Canada and USD -> CAD price sucks. the HID did you have to change anything or was in installed in the stock projectors? i wasn't really planning on spending 150USD (190 CAD) on an HID kit.. maybe in the future though.

    hmmm, the sirius bulbs you linked are $25, the morimoto led fog lamp kit is $170 but its the whole housing being replaced.

    they just plugged right in to the stock projector. You should probably run a relay as well. but if you want the best lighting, then buying the morimoto HID kit is worth it. If you dont really care it probably seems like a lot.

    i dont doubt that its the best. its what i see most people going towards. maybe next summer ill look into it or if my halogens fail. spent enough money on my car ahaha. i just checked for the sirius led and in canada it comes up to $50.. conversion + shipping sucks.

    does the boot fit right around the knob? It looks loose.
