Default Yellow Driving/Fog lights

I have a 2003 Bonneville SSEi. Does anyone know if there is any way to change out stock driving lights to Yellow ones, or is there any way to color them, or get a Yellow bulb? I do courrier work and drive thru heavy fog areas in North East Pa. Thanks for any suggestions

fog lights you mean right?

pick up some hella angels eyes (ebay) or cyberwhite navigators (walmart).. they are 2x brigher than stock and have real glass lenses... and you could put a yellow bulb in them

they make yellow hid bulbs that look pretty sweet and are bright. Some kid on club gp has them.
You would have to get a hid kit though....

well if you looking for FOG LIGHTS to use in the Rain adn Fog and Snow then you dont want the Angel eyes or Cyber whites, those are Driveing lgiths, they will put of alot of Glare and will make it harder to see in the fog and snow.

For FOG ro SNOW you want "Fog Lights" they have a diffrent beem pattern and have a cover infront of the build so there isn;t any glare in front of the car.

Unless the angel eyes have that Sheld you dotn want them for Fog lights , for Driving lights they Kick Butt

Driving lights actually still work pretty decently in bad weather conditions. Fog lights are a very short, but wide beam so you can see the lines (especially the oustide line) in horrid weather. Driving lights are meant to light up your lane (narrow pencil like beam) further then low beams, but not blinding everyone.

Yellow lights wont glare like a white/blue tinted light will. That'* why you see some cars with HID that looks blueish, and then a yellow Fog.

I need new ones... Tempted to do yellow...

projector fogs are your best option.

3000k is the color temperature of yellow. I woud not suggest HID in the stock fog housings but I woud suggest looking into projector fog lights.
