Default New bulbs

So I decided to remove my horridly blue fog bulbs and place some new 4300k bulbs in their place, Heres some pics.





Both fogs and head lights on.

Inside view of both lights on.


Camera wouldn't focus for it'* life and it just sucks in general and they don't glare as much as the pictures do as it'* just a cheap camera but overall I like the look.

I don't really notice any yellow in them quite yet. They are still brand new so anything can happen in the next few weeks. 4300k is "supposed" to be the brightest whitest color temp. Though having 55watt low beams makes it hard to match the colors temps and yes they are HID'*.

The ballasts are ddm tuning units and they are a great product, I haven't had one hiccup in almost two years. The bulbs for the fogs and lows are just ebay bulbs that are also a great product. My first set of bulbs from ddm tuning on the 55watt lows turned purple on me so I just got some cheapies but damn they are great.

blue is nice, but pure white convinced me out of it. It just looks different and less rice points were collected
