Yellow actually serves a purpose and looks way better. I prefer 3000k bulbs myself, but that's not what this thread is for. Voted.

Pretty sure yellow actually DOES NOT work better for fog and is just a misconception that it does.

It does look cool though, but it actually DIMINISHES visibility.

There seems to be a lot of debate on whether it helps visibility or not. The arguments against it helping visibility are; if it is a film, you are limiting the amount of light coming from the bulb because it is a tint... if you put a yellow bulb in, usually the bulbs are less watts so it is actually emitting less light than a standard bulb.

If anyone can add to this discussion, please do, I would like to know more myself.

Also from what I have read is "yellow" light does not cut through fog any better than "white" light. Fog is dense enough to cause both color spectrums to be reflected the same.

The misconception is that they cut through fog, period. They're to help light up the road and lines more directly in front of you for lower speed, low visibility situations, e.g. fog, heavy rain, blizzard. Yellow (in my experience) is particularly extremely helpful in snowy conditions.

im actually ordering some yellow tint for my fogs:) only question is, since i have a 6k hid kit in mine, will the light actually be green? but to answer your question with my opinion, is get some tint of each color, its cheap and easy to remove if you don't like it:)
