Yellow fogs?

I'm looking to get some bright yellow (<3000k) fog light bulbs for my white C350, and was wondering what everyone recommends for longevity?


I do not, repeat, DO NOT want HID's. Halogen only please. I also don't want some cheap Chinese BS that will burn out in less than a week. If I get a year out of them, I will be satisfied.


What's the best halogen bulb that will give off a low kelvin, bright yellow light? ..or am I better off getting an LED replacement?


Also, just for clarification, what size do our fogs take? I've read H7, but I thought it was H11..?


Here is a pic of the look I am trying to achieve. I know these are HIDs, but there has to be a Halogen bulb out there that will achieve a similar look with similar output.

I paired the Hella Optilux H7 bulbs below with Lamin-X yellow overlays and love it. This combo leads to a rich yellow light output similar to the Lexus GS400/430 and IS300. Hella is a trusted brand. These bulbs have a 4.5/5 star review on amazon. Also, at $12 bucks shipped, these bulbs are a bargain. I've had them for 7 months so far with no issues.

Use Hella. It is the same brand the MB uses for the entire fog lamp assembly. Look closely on your fog lens and if they are the original fogs it should say Hella on it.
