I was looking for some 880 in amber or yellow like the Lexus GS.
Do they make them?

not sure if anybody makes an 880 in a PURE yellow bulb

what you could do if you are serious about the yellow light is replace the assembly with the angel eyes (clear lens) and get piaa h3 ion crystal bulbs.

PIAA’* patented Ion Crystal technology is a great way to improve your visibility in inclement weather. Ion Crystal puts out an amber/yellow light that is less reflective than white light thus greatly reducing the amount of glare in extreme fog.

Good Idea Zeke, I highly recomend Angle Eyes or Blazertechs to Everyone. the 55watt bulb makes a huge difference. You can get any color bulb in a H-3.

Pure yellow bulb for 880 or any size. I used these in my aurora'* fogs 893'* pretty darn yellow, I recomend these bulbs as well.

It'* nothing like that. I had some HIU fog light bulb I got off of
ebay that were Great. Even brighter than my Silverstar Heads.
They just blow out about 3 weeks ago. They lasted about 6 mths.
But I was looking for something different. And I love how the
lights on the Lexus GS looks so I thought I would see how it would
look on my car. I think it match well with the color of my car.
I finally found a part store that have in stock the Silverstars 880ST
for my fog lights after searching for over 2 weeks. But they cost
$19.99 each. Just looking for some other options if any.

Yellow is better for fog lights for drving in fog or snow. Should shoot wide to the side so you can see the lines of your lane (point of fogs).

White is better for driving lights, and will go far down the road.

I bought those angel eyes for my bonne and didnt like the look what so ever. I knew that they were 3" as opposed to the factory 3.5" but didnt think it would make that much difference.. After installing I pulled them right back off.. The .5" difference made the lights look dinky in that big of an opening. Does anyone know of a manufacturer that makes a 3.5" round H3 driving light?? If so, let me know because I want to get thos PIAA 9000K bulbs.

Really? I can't belive you didn't like them. I agree the smaller Dia. looks a little differnet but not bad. Since you just un hooked them right away, I take it you didn't get to check them out at night?

well not sure on how big the blazertech 2200/3200 are. I know the Cyberwhite Navigators are smaller like the angle eyes I believe. Going to have to do a little hunting around. I know that Hella has lots of differnt sizes, I have a little brochure on them all somewhere, call them up and get there current product guide, it should be free. I don't think they make angle eyes in other round sizies but I bet they have a 3.5 fog light that will work.

yellow is also very good in rain.

yellow can also be found in driving lights, such as the big dollar piaas!
