    i searched around TW and couldn't find an answer to My fog light questions
    1) i was wondering where you buy the yellow 130watt fog light bulbs. NO INTERNET SITES
    2) Im going to go the cheap route, buy some $10 fog lights and replace the bulb with the 130watt ones. would that be okay?

    if you are looking for bulbs check out this site, they are close to you and have free shipping, i have the yellow bulbs from them and are bright as hell, i would not buy 135 bulbs for the fog light, you will proably melt the harness or cover.

    a guy on TTORA did them that way and he hasn't had any problems since. im wondering if anyone has done it the same way here?

    maybe it was 55w=130w bulbs? i dont know.

    you can go to pep boys, they have a good selection of bulbs or you can go to a shop that sells parts for honda's and other rice burners.

    i think im gonna try to buy ones from autozone or walmart then switch out the bulbs to some nice halogens. BUT I DONT KNOW WHICH COLOR.. WHITE OR YELLOW OR AMBER?


    i've read white is brighter but less functional in the fog.

    INPUT PLEASE.. i'll have these done by Tuesday if i can get enough info on which color bulbs to go with.

    Im thinking that Granada Hills doesnt get too much fog and probably a lot less snow so go with what you want.
    Driving lights are primarily for fast driving in poorly lighted areas where you may be overdriving your regular head lights; easy to do in the hills with lots of deer and no street lights.
    If you are looking to use them as DRL's I think the yellow is best as it is more visible at greater distances in daylight.

    true. very poorly lit places here. and i don't care much about DRLs..
    Yellows are pretty bright. and combing with my HIDs the cut off from yellow to White would look sweet.

    thanks a lot man!

    go with the yellow for better visibility and buy the wiring harness because i know people that have had their oem/stock wiring burn and toyota will not warranty it. if you buy from luminics, they are located in whittier (ca) - you can buy the wiring harness and bulbs for about $50. not sure tax/shipping.
