    Unless you need the yellow lens to wash out some ultra blue HIDs or something....Smoked looks way sharper.

    Yellow yellow yellow yellow.

    They're more functional, they look badass... They'll add contrast to your front end, and there's supposedly more effective in heavy fog. Also, they look badass. Case in point...

    Warning: About to geek out why this isn't the case.

    Both of those lenses are filters over white lights. They both reduce the overall output.
    They are also no more effective white versus yellow light for fog. Fog droplets are so large compared to the wavelength of color of light that the droplets scatter all light pretty effectively.

    You might get less glare from yellow...but that's about it. And that "badass" thing is subjective- Cause I think THEY just look like ass.

    I'm about to geek out in response to your geek out.

    I did write "supposedly", to transcend ambiguity about my opinion wether or not this is true OR false.

    In addition, my bulbs are yellow as well.

    And also, fuck you for calling me an ass.

    He said the yellow looks like ass, not that you are one..

    My vote was yellow, only because I feel I can see better in the rain.

    Wow- Slow your roll cowboy- I didn't get all the words into my post- but I sure as shit wasn't calling you an ass. PS-I went back and added the word that I missed.
    So fuck YOU.

    And since you felt like giving an opinion that you aren't even sure about- I went ahead and brought some science to situation to give a decent explanation instead of a a piss poor guess passed off as fact.
    And fuck you again for being an ass. (Imagine that-I didn't even call you an ass and I was right...You are.)

    Filtering yellow lights with yellow lenses is waste too....

    WELL he's right, get whichever one suits your nanometer preference, and I am an ass. AND a cowboy apparently too, and I'll never try to "PASS OFF A PISS POOR GUESS AS A FACT" again by repeating something that I read on this forum.

    Furthermore, don't you think that if I AGREED with it because I actually HAVE these lights, I would have said, "THEY DEFINITELY, FOR A FACT, WORK BETTER IN FOG THAN CLEAR LENSES"

    Jesus christ man. Take an honest american "fuck you" in stride instead of loosing your shit, it's not like I hexed your family or something.

    Just cause you read it here, or on Wikipedia, or saw it on (Insert your favorite news network) doesn't mean it's true. Forums are to discuss stuff....which is what I was trying to do....and then Who started freaking out??

    Your wrong....Take that in stride and STFU. K??

    :facepalm:

    When did I say it was TRUE???? I've made two very clear, very distinct efforts to re-affirm the fact that I do not agree that they perform better, why are you still focusing on this?

    Well...It started with your first post where you put "Case in Point" after your short statement with no factual back up. And then it continued when you tried to justify/excuse your statements by saying "But I read it here" implying you believed it was true cause you read it here...and decided to pass it along as "Case in Point"

    Don't back peddle so hard- It's okay to learn something now and again.

    NO. The "Case in point" was referring to my sig pic, as in, "they look badass, look at my picture, don't they look badass?" which was the centric statement of my post. It was to be interpreted as follows.

    "They look great, and in addition there are some people on this forum who say that they work better than regular fogs."

    I'm sorry I didn't produce a light spectrum chart, and expert witness and a list of citations to validate my opinion on how cool the lights look. Next time I'll PM you and ask you for your take on it before I start just blindly replying to threads. :D

    Don't waste your time- I won't answer.

    You had two arguments- 1) Better performance- which just isn't true. 2) Badass- which I was perfectly content to say is an opinion....until you freaked out about something that never got said...

    I don't pay attention to sigs...sorry.
