I have HID headlights on my 5.0. However, the fog lights look rather dim and a bit yellowish compared to the HIDs. Have any of you also noticed this? I realize the fog lights are not HIDs and not designed or specified to be as bright but would like for those to be a little brighter / whiter. Have any of you replaced your fod lights? Any comments and or thoughts welcome. Thank you in advance.

You must be talking about the driving lights, the two inner ones on the grill? They are incandescent and should be yellow and not as bright. They light the area in front of the vehicle behind where the headlights illuminate. I only run mine when it's pitch black out. so I can see more of the road directly in front of me.

They are Fog lights and you're right that they're not meant to be as bright and are meant to only illuminate directly in front of the car...quite helpfull in fog and any poor visibilty since they light the lines on the road quite well...

They don't appear yellow next to regular headlights...HIDs are just that much whiter that anything else looks yellow.

I'm thinking of putting a CS bumper on mine, CS fog lights, keeping the current grill, and replacing the fog lights with actual driving lights. Back when I was a teenager I had a '74 Mustang II dropped about 3" with a 4bbl 302 and manually shifted C4...had driving lights on that and loved that the Northern California back roads I used to drive would light up like day for 1/2 mile in front of me when they were on.

Don't the fog lights illuminate only when the headlights are on low beam? If you replace them with spot driving lights, is it possible to make them illuminate only when the high beams are on? Would a chip change be required?

I put 4300K's in them and they look more like the HID's now, color wise.

I replaced the fog lamp bulbs in my GT with whiter ones from Hoen. The Mustang GT fog lamps are H10. Cost $34 shipped...

I bought a set of 4300k HIDs from ddmtuning.com and installed them in the CS lower fogs. They're a perfect match, and after leveling the foglights, the cutoff angle is perfect.

Do you mind giving out the part number as I am seriously considering doing this also.

Am I the only one who leaves their fog lights on all the time?

I run mine all the time, with the parking lights during the day, and with the low-beams at night (they automatically turn off when the high-beams are switched on).

To the OP, Nokya also makes a H10 in Arctic White that creates a HID-ish appearance, they're $19 shipped on Ebay. I'm getting them, along with the H13's (non-HID headlights), for mine this coming spring.
