Thanks for the comments guys! The fogs are from passJDM and i colormatched them FBP. I couldnt imagine myself spending 3-400 bucks on just foglights...That could go into my motor!

I think it would look lightyears better with chrome lights and clear fogs, an OEM hood (at least paint the one you bought), a stock lip, a stock steeringwheel, and the headunit mounted in the stock location (at least put something prettier than a piece of plastic).

If i did what you said my Si would look like EVERY OTHER ONE OUT THERE! I stand next to my decisions. as for the block off tray... i got into an accident and my airbags blew so it was a cheap alternative to getting anything else, same with the steering wheel.

I don't find this funny at all
I have clear fog in my gf's civic and have used both regular bulb and amber bulb.
Driving with amber bulb is alot different, at least much brighter than using regular bulb.
And no, I did not paint the fog amber, I am using amber bulb.

I didn't know light passing through a filter was brighter than white light.

My conclusion was based on my own driving experience.
If you don't think it is, then that's fine, you can all you want.
In the mean time, drive safe.

Amber is not brighter, so "unless you just happen to like yellow, save your money and forget about so-called "fog-lights." They don't exist."

Quote:

I was asked the other day why fog lights were yellow. When I couldn't come up with an answer, I started asking around and discovered, to my surprise, that apparently nobody else could either.

Skiers, shooters and other outdoor types have long known that yellow goggles or glasses enhance outdoor vision. This is because the yellow lenses filter out the blue part of the spectrum and increase the contrast of a scene. But does the same thing hold the other way around? With the goggles, we are filtering reflected light entering our eyes, but is it possible to illuminate something with yellow light and achieve similar results? The answer, apparently, is no (which is likely to raise strong objections from people who have been using yellow fog lights for years).

For expert advice, I contacted the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) on Fort Wainwright. Captain John Craig of that group then arranged to have a computer search made on the subject of light penetration in fog and mist from CRREL's headquarters in Hanover, New Hampshire. As a result, I obtained a list of over 200 references and abstracts of articles published by researchers all over the world.

Not a single one asserted that yellow light has superior penetrating qualities, but several specifically stated that it did not.

I'll assume they have a legitimate source:

Tom: So the question becomes, to yellow or not to yellow? There's a lot of debate about this, but the research says that yellow lights are no better than white lights at penetrating fog. The theory bandied about was that yellow light has a longer wavelength and is therefore less likely to be reflected by the fog particles. Turns out, this is complete poppycock.

Ray: Apparently, the fog particles themselves are so big that they reflect all colors of light. Basically, all light bounces off of them, so using yellow light instead of white light gives you no advantage.

Tom: Plus, in order to get yellow light, what fog-light manufacturers do is put a yellow lens over a white light. That cuts your light output by 20 percent to 30 percent, which is counterproductive.
