H8 is the bulb number for the driving lights, from there you select a color. I'm going with LED White to match the headlights on my Touring
I did see a yellow though

There is a difference and these are fog not driving lights.

What is the difference between a fog light & a driving light?
Fog lights provide illumination forward of the vehicle that enhances visibility in fog, rain, snow, or dust. Fog lights are intended to be used in conjunction with standard headlamp low beams. Driving lights are mounted to provide illumination forward of the vehicle and intended to supplement the high beam of a standard headlamp system. It is not intended for use alone or with the low beam of a standard headlamp system.

Whatever you want to call them, mine are being changed over to white LED to match the headlights on Saturday

So I just recently purchased H11 4500k Morimoto Elite kit. I got to say it is way brighter than stock and I now have more visibility at night. One thing that is weird is that after I made that bulb change... My engine light came on which is strange. I'm planning to swap back to OEMs and see if it is still the case. If not, planning to take my car to the Dealer to figure out why my brand new car now all a sudden has an Engine light.

I have to keep an open mind here. If your kit is that much brighter maybe it is a good idea. Are these bulbs a bright white? I have always been a fan of stock so I always hesitat. Let us know how the check engine light turns out. Hopefully it's nothing...

Yes, basically it is a a bright white color or white. It is brighter when I compared it though being HIDs, it may blind others and depending in certain states, they are illegal. The better option may be to go LED Low beam instead but it's on the preference of the owner. There's always other alternatives for better bulbs but you never know until you experiment.

How are these working out for ya? I was thinking about buying some as well but read some pretty bad reviews saying they go out about a week or two after installation.

Awesome! I can't stand the halogens against the LED DRLs. I ordered them on Saturday so hopefully they come in the next few days
