Fog Light Tinting/Highlighting, Any Examples?

Has anybody tinted or highlighted their fog lights? I have a white '11 M3 Hatch... I am thinking about doing something minor such as a slight coloration... maybe yellow? I might have seen somebody do a yellow tint/hightlight on this car in the past... I am not sure if I liked it or not. Post up any examples if you have done this yourself.

if tint was possible but still have white output I would have done it... I tried at night, and it changes the fog color too much for my taste. I enjoy them matching the headlights.

if you got 3000k HIDs, and put a light black tint overlay on it, I'm sure you would enjoy the look daytime, and night time (if that yellow fog thing, is your thangggg that is)

Re: Fog Light Tinting/Highlighting, Any Examples?

So I got the 35W 5000K headlights and fogs from DDM. I was thinking about tinting my fogs with the Lamin-X gunsmoke tint (darkest one - 12%). Is this going to noticibly mis-match the light output/color of my headlights and fogs? If so, any way I can prevent this?

Also, does anyone recommend getting anything other than the Lamin-X pre-cut film for the fogs? Seems like a pretty easy install... Quality still good?

Bump...

If I do a Lamin-X gunsmoke tint on the fogs, will the light output still match my headlights, or will it noticibly change the color of the light?

I don't have a 2010, but I have gunsmoke lamin-x overlays on my fog lights with a 4500k HID kit. There is no change in color or light output.
