I have an '09 9-5 with Xenon headlights and halogen fog lights. I'd like to convert the fog lights to match the yellow of the older Lexus fog light HID's.
Anyone know what the color temp of the Lexus fog lights are?

thanks, zoltan

3000K is the way to go. It may look slightly different though. Be aware that the Lexus foglight reflector is actually yellow, which gives it that crisp yellow look. Still, I've seen 3000K HID setups that were very close to matching that look.

will probably go with a 3K HID kit on EBAY from a local guy in NYC.
