headlight and foglight bulb suggestions.

ok so i recently replaced my headlight housings and foglight housings , and got bulbs with them , but im not liking the colors.

[IMG][/IMG]

so i would like suggestions on brands / colors . since i have no idea whats good in the world of automotive lighting . ( over the winter i will be doing my first retro-fit in the old headlights . just as a project but hopefully itll be bad-ass ) so what brand should i get ? keep in mind i would like a nice vivid yellow for the fogs ( maybe yellow bulbs AND yellow film , i dunno) and i would like the headlights as white as can be . links would be awsome too . thanks guys

edit: also now that i think of it , the color of the fogs in the pic is what i would like the heads to be

BAT inc sells some pretty cool bulbs for reasonably cheap!
I haven't personally tried them but they might be what you're looking for if you don't want to do HID.

Phillips Crystal Vision Ultras for the Headlights and Nokya Hyper Yellow for the Fogs, I use these both and I drive 90% at night. I have used ALL Silverstar bulbs, and they will never match the life and output of Phillips Crystal Vision bulbs, period.
