You could always go with an 880 3400k HID kit, that with a 9006 6000k HID Kit for the headlights would look awesome

Why do people do Yellow fogs? I don't understand the point of it.

I think it looks really tacky.

Read this and it should clear it right up.

The 893 yellow bulb is a great drop in replacement for our stock fogs. To do fogs correctly in our cars you might want to look at a PIAA 510 Crystal Ion offering or a Bosch 4 in offering.

On my Bonneville I run a set of CATZ lamps that work really well. On my Tacoma I installed a set of PIAA 510 lamps that work well but I have not had the chance to use in dense fog or snow. In rain they do the job.

Why use the 893 when you can buy 880 yellow bulbs?
