Question HID Headlight/Foglight Color Combo

I have searched this forum and I wasn't able to find a thread about the different headlight/foglight color combo's out there. I thought it would be cool if we had a thread where people posted photo's of their headlight/foglight color combinations. I think it would be nice if you post a photo of your headlight/foglight combo and then state what you have.

This is a daytime photo of the HID's I installed today (6000k) and stock foglights.

I will be adding HID to the foglights but I am debating on 6000k to match headlights or to go yellow with like a 4000k. I sure would like to see what you guys have gone with! Also, I will post a night pic later tonight.

Go all the way to 2500, the stock fogs are already about 4000.

Know of any examples where I can see what that would look like on a GT?

Looks like he has vinyl covers on his fogs. The yellow fog/ and HIG combo looked nice on my Nissan but I'm not sure if it fits with American muscle.

It looks like you have a silhouette of the running horse in your billet grille, did you once have the emblem then remove it? Kinda looks cool lol

Yeah I still have the original honeycomb grille behind the black grille, but had to take off the chrome mustang for it to fit. I was just to lazy to cut up the original so it wouldn't show through.

Here's mine. My stock foglights were faded beyond repair, so instead of replacing them I went for the Boss look; I wet sanded them and gave them lots of coats of flat black. The bottom fog lights aren't actually fogs either, I turned them into custom LED blinkers. I used gutter-guard, flat black paint, silicone, and patience to make custom expanded metal inserts on the blinker slots. Sorry the headlights aren't on, but they're still stock. Going to go with pure white HIDs eventually.

I run Sylvania Silverstars (4000K) and Silverstar Ultras (4100K) headlight lamps and Hella Optilux Extreme Yellow XY (2500K) fogs in our 4 vehicles, period. If you want to have functional fog lights, 2500K-3000K. If you want "pretty" for the bag to match your shoes... I mean, the fogs to match your headlights, go with 9,000,000,000,000K fogs (or anything higher than 3500K).

So I went with the 3000k fog lights (couldn't find 2500k at local dealer). I love it but I wish it was more yellow like calistangs fogs, think I might add some vinyl!

Here's my car with a 6000k bi-xenon kit from Kensun on Amazon for the headlights (which project a nice light blue/luxury style look with some white):

The fogs look yellow because I had the smoked fog light covers on at the time from AM, they're OEM lights. However, when I bring the car out of storage I'm going to run these in the fogs which seem to have good reviews:
