That'* great stuff. Yellows will help alot with fog, but I don't think they'll help that much with rain.

I posted a link to an article on one of the corvette forums some time ago about changing to yellow. I'll try to find it again.

Thats pretty much the main reason is for the fog. Thats why I would rather just change out the bulbs in the foglights than actually having to change out the high beams. I dont drive that much with the fog lights on anyways. So we will be able to upgrade to the 885 and then upgrade the fuse, & not have any problems. Thanks for posting that link Will.

yellow lights are good for fog, snow, and rain.

there is also a difference between fog lights and driving lights. i personally like driving lights, but i usually get a bad glare in fog and have to turn them off. driving lights project a long and narrow beam as where true fog lights project a short and wide beam.

if you are mainly upgrading for fog, try out a 55w fog light (as in replacing the whole assembly).
Some good places to try are checker and walmart. if you are completely serious about the yellow light, i'm pretty sure piaa makes some ion yellow bulbs.


Quote:
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.

Single Pack 13555
Bulb Type 12V - H3
Wattage 55w = 85w
Technology Ion Crystal with XTRA Technology
hope this helps

Keep in mind, most of you guys have 37w lamps? 92 and 93, maybe even 94 had 50w lamps STOCK. I'm running 55 now. If you came equipped with 37'* (probably 95 and newer) you should upgrade the fuse.
