What foglight bulbs does the Si use? Or is it a complete unit?

Because i was thinking of tinting my fogs yellow with yellow dimmer bulbs so they are classed as driving lights instead of fogs..

they use H3 bulbs, not sure though on the legality of just changing the bulbs making them driving lights, still recon potential for getting pulled over if used when not foggy as being placed under the bumper line.

Thank you

Shame is i want one that is proper yellow like on rally cars and on the film Initial D.
The only ones i can find are from places like indonesia and malasia lol and they aren't true yellow.
I might have to tint the glass too.. but you can't buy yellow spray.. only film.

When i went to the scrappy today i saw a renault 21 with yellow fogs, the glass was clear as were the bulbs. But the reflective metal bit was yellow yet still shiney/reflective. What kinda paint d'ya recon would work for that?

You can use glass paint from an arts and crafts shop, a small pot is only around £3 and would do about sets of fog lamps, you can buy the yellow film on ebay, but you have to get the right stuff, i bought some recently and it was like a sweet wrapper with a sticky side, was rubbish on the si fog lamps due to the slight convex shape of them, i think people use yellow laminex which is really good, but expensive for an A4 sheet
