changing stock foglight bulbs to HID bulbs

I wanted to change my stock foglight bulbs to HID bulbs to match my HID stock headlights. Any recommendations on foglight bulbs to match the headlights? I'm looking for the perfect match in color between my headlights and fog lights.

2012 or newer, I would go for Morimoto. For 2011 or older, I got a LED bulb + LED DRL (Same brand). I have run them over the winter and they are still running strong (fingers crossed).

2nd that. I shopped around for higher intensity bulbs but eventually went with the Morimoto's. Couldn't be happier. Very bright and good cutoff. Took a little while to adjust is all since they completely replace the stock fogs.

Please do not install HID in reflector bowls, you will be blinding oncoming traffic drivers. Keep the roads safe. As said, LED bulbs would be fine if Morimoto fog assemblies are out of budget.

You can install HID however I would get some old factory fog HID projectors that came stock on ford fusions and see if you mod them to onto your car. (Per the Justnspace).
Just dont ask thoiboi his car has red foglights!
This is how off mine were after 30min install. They put on the yellow LamiX film for me since I had a cast on one hand.

Ya sorry bout the size I was editing and making it smaller, when I got a call by time I got back it was too late to change. I thought I pressed the post button before I went to another room.
