Oh, fer sure. Don't get me wrong, I have additional lights under my doors (puddle lights); in the footwells; under the trunk lid and under the hood. All white and they only come on when I need them to see!

GS - to each his own. Don't intend to cause bad feelings.

Well, unless you're the dip who blinds me in the 4x4 with the lift kit every morning.

I was just being a smart-aleck.

But seriously: I have been waiting for the OEM bulbs to burn out, probably be waiting a while since I only use them during the spring and fall CO monsoon season rolling fog. I've been wondering if a yellow bulb would work better. The OEM's seem to glare a bit much in ground fog.

While British practice was for either yellow or clear lenses on fog lights, apparently the idea that yellow works better isn't true.

Do Fog Lights Really Work?, Alaska Science Forum

This is also interesting though.

It would be better if they were yellow. Then [strike]mor[/strike] er, people might realize what they should be used for.

Road paint lines use yellow to delineate two way traffic. Yellow lamps may help them to show up more, as well.
