What's the best fog lights that are mot HIDs.

What fog lights are everyone using? I am looking at the Hella High Performance Xenon Blue ones at PepBoys. They are not xenon though, just supposed to have a 4300k look. Can people post some pics? Thanks, Matt

I got a full HID kit from Umnitza for $200. Amazing. Perform like regular xenon headlights but in fog position.

MTEC bulbs are great and cheaper than HID's. I tried HID's in my fogs and the drivers side bulb didnt fit because of the windshield washer fluid reservoir...
The HID bulbs came straignt out and the wires became cramped. The oem size bulbs are an L shape and you need the same style fitment...
