Yeah, there's already a set of those on the car. They're about a foot up the bumper from the regular fog lights.

The blue ones are cheap aftermarket ones. The light on the ones you have now is much better, much purer.

It's not whitish-yellow, it' just white, like pure sunlight.

I also have yet to use the foglights. I've even driven through some fog, but the regular lights are perfect and illuminate the road very well anyways. I guess I'll probably have to wait for a snowstorm or something.

Re: MKV headlight and foglight bulbs

Does anyone know the number for the fog lights? I think I read somewhere it's 9006, can someone verify or is it in the manual or something?

Re: MKV headlight and foglight bulbs

Dude, any brightness (reasonably) would work with your Gti. My recommendation is to go to an autoparts store, and ask to show someone your car.

A small, locally owned shop would be better than say Pep Boys, but see what you like.

Did you want it brighter, or another color? I myself like the yellow, and my just get a really bright-racing yellow to replace them at some point.

Re: MKV headlight and foglight bulbs

I saw a really nice Black Magic with bright yellow fogs. Really nice. I'm looking for more of a bright white, possibly blue. But what I was talking about is the type of bulb, I mean I can't just go into a shop and get some light bulbs. Don't they have different kinds for different cars?

Re: MKV headlight and foglight bulbs

Alright... no one seemed to respond to this topic. But I was wondering what experience anyone has had, if any, with Hoen?

They have these Xenon matching foglights. By the by, the # or size for the foglight bulbs on the GTI is 9006.

I'm looking for some hardcore yellow lights to replace the stock fog lights in my GTI.

Something realllly rich in yellow, like they use in racing.

Any recommendations? Installation difficult?

Re: Racing Yellow Fog Lights

I feel like I haven't had a meaningful post in a while, but I hope this helps. Their website looks legit, and their website is well put together.

Edit: At the top they have Xenon matching fog lights, then if you scroll down they have the yellow racing lights.
