    The best way would be yellows bulbs. Lamin-x have a UK website, do they do yellow film?

    well the car iv seen on here it had the glass in yellow and looking on ebay i see the film for the head lights. may paint the glass with the glass paint if bulbs are over priced. i just see it when i have them on as we have had fog last few days with the HIds on they look yucky and yellow will work good in fog plus not make the HIDs look too out of place when they are on if that makes seens

    that lamin-x is £13 for 12x12 witch would be enough to do both fogs i think seen it on ebay for £8 ish not to bad i guess iv found a glass paint witch will work for £3 so may go down that road

    Can't go wrong for 99p!

    I agree re the HID's, they're great if you only want a colour match, but useless in the real world I think.

    If you want them to look yellow when they are off then lamina-x is good, but if you want yellow light too then get the yellow fog bulbs from the lamina-x site. They seem quite expensive but they are brilliant! They are very very bright and light the road up very well. Get both the bulbs and the film for the best look!

    Thats a great looking front anyway, I'm not sure how much of that is down to the yellow fogs!

    Post pics when you do yours Simon.

    Looks like you have a Gmbh front?

    Interesting question, I've never seen it done, I think the S4 grilles are probably deeper but I'm far from sure. You'd need to find a willing S4 owner to try!

    If you mean the S4 foglight grills then no they don't, they have a completely different way of fixing, i thought of doing that and Az sent me pics of his and unless you can make a hybrid of the 2 or cut your bumper up they wont fit

    That Lamin-x is good stuff, I had the clear version on my civic fogs, as they are prone to breaking. It's thick so it protects the glass from stones.
