3000K are exactly similar to the OE color i.e. yellow. I don't think they will be a cause of concern during rain/fog.

The best option IMO is to accommodate a pair of some nice Hella's between the OE fog lamps, although it will require some modifications to the black trim in the bumper. Will be worth it, I guess. Will add to the looks too. Maybe some photoshop gurus could help?

the stock bulbs are 4000K. The look like normal halogens which are in stock headlights/fogs. 3000K is deep yellow.

Waking up an old thread....

Well, After much running around and trying to find a fix, I decided to check out with Satya (BlueRaven316) at his shop EVO and he suggested to change the stock bulb with Philips and check.

The result was what is was looking for, real use of the fog lamps.

All that is needed is a little adjustment/focusing of the position of the bulb.

Thanks to Satya, Condor, live2drive, Hummer.Rulez and others for your inputs.

Thanks sagarpadaki, Pair of the philips costed me 400 and huge improvment from the stock, not sure if these can be used on i20, if the wattage is same then you can give it a shot.

Akshay4587, its the same bulb, It's just titled the other way that's all. Paid 400 for the pair. the right one is out of focus, all i need to do is to little adjustment of the bulb position as the reflectors are fixed and cannot be moved.

Sajands, are the philips bulbs brighter than the stock GE ones? Are they yellow or white? Based on your advice, I tried focusing the stock ones and its somewhat better now.

Hi Icemanz, sorry for the long, late reply. the Philips are much brighter than the stock GE. Color is white not yellow and since you have adjusted the focus, may I suggest you to try one side with GE and the other with Philips and you can see the difference.

Congrats Sajands, for finding a way out from this dilemma.
Actually adjusting the focus and direction itself will save the purpose.
Philips bulbs are far far better than OEM bulbs, and I admit it. still, one question remains.

Is this bulb serving right on rains and fog?

You can try some of these options as well :
1. Fog Lamp HYUNDAI ACCENT/VERNA 2004 ONST-HY013, buy Fog Lamp from gasgoo.com
2. HID kit with H27 type bulb, and temp matching your HL
3. Something like this :
Optilux H71010291 Model 1100 12V/55W Black Halogen Projector Fog Lamp Kit | eBay

and checkout a DYI on verna fog lamps

Hi aneeshanand,

Thanks and never got to test the bulbs in the rain or fog, the spread of the beam is much better now and in the night, One can actually see the road with just the fog lights turned on.

Can anybody please explain how to adjust the focusing of the fog lamps? I have also upgraded to philips. Though they are brighter than OEMs, still not illuminating the road properly.

Thanks
Prasanth

One can adjust the bulb by changing the alignment of the bulb. You can check with a good electrician or the same person who fitted the philips bulbs on you car, he can adjust the focus of the beam.

Hope this helps.
