Ok thanks, suffice to say the fog lights IMHO are more for show anyway. I have them on my Mercedes and only use them during the day and they are useless at night. So if I want to avoid any sort of blueish color I should just go with the LED bulbs? My goal is to get rid of the ugly 80's yellows light look and match the the headlights as close as possible. Unless of course someone can refer me to ones that are not blue at all are are HID.
