White or Yellow?

Upgrading the stock fog lights on the A4.

Cant decide whether to go with white to match the HIDs or yellow.

What do you say CLSB?

White fogs:





Yellow fogs:

Neither. Only sissies run fog lights.

white. the yellow/white mix looks like you're riding a clapped out early 90s gixxer with oakleys and zubaz.

yellow, unless you're going to be a douche and drive with your fog lights on in any weather condition

Look, I can appreciate this. I was young too, I felt just like you. Hated authority, hated all my bosses, thought they were full of shit. Look, it's like they say, if you're not a rebel by the age of 20, you got no heart, but if you haven't turned establishment by 30, you've got no brains. Because there are no story-book romances, no fairy-tale endings. So before you run out and change the world, ask yourself, "What do you really want?"

Confused more than ever. Yellow has 'that guy' look. But the contrast looks great. White matches great with the leds.

Why are you upgrading stock fog lights? Do you use them that often, and do they make that much of a difference?

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Yellow is supposed to be more effective as an actual fog light. But white is more modern like your car.

IMHO, I'd go white.

Upgrade is purely for aesthetic purposes.
The fog lights barely make a difference since the headlights are quite bright.

Dude you are ridiculous - How do you even get out of bed in the morning?

Fog lights are for posers - I turn them off on all my cars
