Holy smokes, can you see anything with 15000k? If you want better visibility and some blue, you should consider going with 6000k. I'm sure you would a notice a big difference. If you want pure white, I think 5000k is the way to go. As for your fogs, 3000K is fine. I think any other color looks funky in fogs. My two pennies.

+1. From what I've read, yellow bulbs in headlights are illegal. If you don't have a retro, you should consider looking into one. There are projectors on the market called Mini H1's that make retros more budget friendly.

I'm more of a function guy so I'd stay in between 4300K and 6000K for light output.

Blinding other drivers aren't we? J/K. Although not ideal, as long as you aim them low, they should be okay.

As for the fogs, I'm sure yellow fogs are legal since some of the older Lexus and Infiniti models have them stock.

BTW, the links don't work.
