Different Lighting Setups

Hey guys, i'm trying to decide what direction to go with in terms of my lighting setup. I know i'm going to get 6k Hids, but I'm less sure as to what to do with my fogs and drls. I'm torn between getting yellow drls and yellow fogs or just either yellow fogs with hid drls or yellow drls with hid fogs.

What do you guys think? Post your lighting setups too!

I really don't understand the fad for yellow lights. I am from France, where they were law until the 90s, and like everyone there, I hate them. They're inferior in every way to regular white.

My personal setup is 4300k HIDs for headlights (no drls), and plain old halogen fogs. I would suggest the same for you, maybe 5000ks if you prefer

HID fogs only glare, and blind everyone else on the road. People who run them should be executed on the spot

(Don't get me started on people who turn their fogs on when it's clear out!)
