Actually I would recommend against changing to fogs to xenon. It defeats their purpose.

so changing the white lights defeats purpose if I change to Xenons? For lack of a better reason, I'm stupid, could you explain?

You have a couple of options for your fogs, you can either go with our Predator Xenix bulbs or our ProLumen HID kit.

The Predator Xenix bulbs are just simple xenon colored halogen replacements that swap out your stock halogens for a closer xenon match. While these are a great and affordable upgrade over your stock halogens, they will not be a 100% xenon match like our HID kits.

For that, you will want our ProLumen HID kit which is a full xenon system like your headlights built for your fogs. They are 100% plug and play and come with a full lifetime warranty. They are also available in a wide variety of color temperatures to match your headlights.

Feel free to contact us with any questions:

Basically, fog lights are supposed to be a little yellow and diffuse light around all over the ground under the fog layer. Xenon lights are meant to be narrow and focused. If you use xenon lights in fog, you will just blind yourself. The mellower light of the fog lights helps you to see more clearly in those conditions than the xenons would.

If it's just a cosmetic issue and you don't care if your fog lights actually function as fog lights, then go ahead and pop in the xenons.

yea, what he said, brighter lights really fuck up you vision in foggy conditions, i did the super fogs mod on my old 325i and when we got some heavy mods, the fogs were useless, they lit up the fog like crazy

yup. and that's exactly why you don't use high beams when it's foggy. Useless - you're just blinding yourself.

and i think you might want to get projector fog lights as well, so that you can further enhance your xenons

Fog Lights

Everyone is correct about not using "blue or white" lights when replacing your fogs. Too much light reflects back towards the driver in thick fog. Having said all that - I changed mine to PIAA Star Whites and love how bright they are!!!!! They actually match my Bi-Xenons currently on my BMW 330ci, and it's a great look. I use them every time I drive at night 'cause it really lights the road directly in front of you creating an envelope of light. Who really uses their fogs for their intended purpose anyway? I want them bright and white for a real knock out presence when driving in town..........
