I'm undecided if I want to go with 3000K or 4300K foggies...

i had 3000k piaa plasma h3 but i ended up going for max light output with clear bulb. the yellows were just too weak and there were too many different colors of lights lol. the clear fogs now match the park lights in the front. not to mention the fogs made the hid look dimmer and lower color temp. here are old pics of yellow. i dont even use the fogs with the hid anyway so i guess it doesnt even matter. its mostly for fun like before it gets dark or something. they are too bright in the foreground and takes away from distance lighting.
