Default Head lights and fog lights

Does anyone have pictures of what your headlights and fog lights look like with the different bulbs that are available? I'm trying to go with a brighter white light but I definitely want to stay away from anything that has a blue tint to it

Are you wanting HID or halogen comparisons? If you upgrade to HID headlights you will not even need foglights. I have led fogs and HID headlights. The fogs are no longer of any great value other than lighting up signs. If you keep the OEM halogens the fogs could be of some help upgraded, but be aware that foglights have a tendency to blind oncoming traffic even more than headlights. It is just the nature of the way the light is spread out with fogs.

Try and stay around 4300k. Lower than that is gonna start getting yellowish and higher, say around 5000k, is gonna have a white/blue look. Hope this helps you out.

No pictures but I will suggest Putco's mirror white bulbs, as white as you can get without being blue, and I was happy with the brightness. Much lower price than PIAA or other very expensive alternatives, I felt like they of equal quality.
