I'm looking to upgrade my fog light setup. Something brighter preferably without going the HID route. The only problem is I want to match my fog lights with my headlights. The headlights have that white-purplish stock looking color but I can't figure out the temperature to match them. Can anyone offer help?

search is your friend man, but here you go, not trying to be a assh0le but really it took me 5 mins to find this

The temp of the bulbs you have (Headlight) is OEM 4000k 35W HID -D2S
you won't be able to match it perfect unless you get HID.
If you want to get a stronger bulb go H9 instead of H11 you can modify the H9 to match the H11 slot and its brighter. i think the bulb that might be closest to that would be a Sylvania. those bulbs are 55$ i think. you can get a Hid kit from ddm tuning ( not saying ddm is the best, i use them, they are cheap and reliable) for the same price.

I'd like to chime in here.
I ran H9's in my car's fogs, and while they are significantly brighter, they dont even last 8 months. I went through 2 sets, and just went back to the H11's because its such a PITFA to change those bulbs out every 6-8 months.
H9's are designed to be used as highbeams and not for everyday use.

OEM Hid color temp is 4300k btw.

^ truth.

Or at one point when I didn't have hid fogs I used LED's . But the output sucked horribly and liked my hid's better. You could be super baller and retrofit a projector.
