Are you running standard or bright white bulbs?

I've said before that I like the yellow fogs. It reminds me of the R5 Turbo's.

Not sure if this would suit my campo evo with red stripes what do you think?

I did this with my old Abarth, as you can see in this video:

Looked great, and it's functional

The colour is technically called "selective yellow" and is supposed to cut through fog better than white light. I ordered some yellow translucent vinyl and covered the lenses using a hair-dryer and lots of patience. Worth it though.

Are yellow fogs / DRL's legal?

Yellow fog lights and headlights are permitted in the UK :)

How do you do it?
Ordered some vinyl off ebay, cut to shape roughly and as Joe said a hair dryer haha, best to spray the fogs and vinyl with water before too. The evos fogs actually have a screw above them in the grille so take that off and you can get at them better, doesnt take long to do.

KK_96 standard atm, anyone with an evo know the best bulbs to go brighter?

I'd say yes Will, love the camp grey, do it and find out!

Is the vinyl adhesive?

Yeah, comes with 2 laminated sides, peel the one you're sticking it too off spray with water, spray fog light with wTer stick it down, press the air bubbles out and hair dry it so it's on right!

Do it! Not like it's going to cost you much just remember to remove the fog covers from the grill by taking out the screws, will make life 10x easier

I didn't know this, does this actually work?

I can notice them more when they're on but this could be because they're yellow haha
