    Not the greatest pics as its raining. But my fogs are now a pretty close match for the HID main beams. Still waiting for my LED side lights to complete the look but pretty chuffed and decided to muck about with the rest of the cars lighting. Interior looks reeeeeaallly good. The bulbs in the underside of the doors have been done, rear reading lights (not fronts yet, not figured out how to get to them??). Number plate and boot lights should arrive tomorrow. I'll try get better pics of the fog, HID match once the rain stops.

    The bulbs were bought on Ebay for £6.99 delivered!!! Bargain, Philips vision which look the same are £23+ p&p. Couple more pics, struggling to photograph them due to the fens flare.

    Contrast with std side lights

    they look great! waiting for my side lights to arrive, hopefully they'll be waiting for me when i get home. gonna have to do the mains and fogs as well, to get rid of the horrable piss stain yellow colour, which looks 10X worse next to HIDs

    i know where your coming from with the matching bulbs with the fogs but do you actually them enough to warrant the upgrade ? Fair enough with all other bulbs but these are hardly a day to day use unless you drive a corsa of course ;-)

    any H7 bulb which says its 6500k is about the nearest match you can get.

    Fogs stay as they are, to do the job, changing to HID or blue tint will reduce its effect during forg! unless you go for 3000K bulbs yellow.

    There's a guy in an A3 round here, with 6000k xenons and matching fogs and sidelights. It looks ridiculous, especially as he drives around with his fogs on all the bloody time.
