In the 2nd picture, what type of headlight bulbs are those? IS that a True HID system. Whatever it is, i think it looks pretty sweet.

Yes that is my car and I have true HID's installed. For my fogs I chose to go with Piaa amber bulbs, because it is very hard to match the fogs with the headlights, and I really like the way the IS300 looks.

hotcat,
just to make sure when you say "Piaa amber bulbs" you do mean the PIAA ion yellow bulbs right?

Since we're on the subject, where can I find orange H3's? Since I'm lacking running lights, I'd like to turn my fogs into running lights, while still being high enough wattage in case I get stuck in a swamp.

Most fogs are yellow because yellow light can penetrate fog rather than reflecting off it like white light. If you've ever looked when it was foggy than you would notice that you can see the amber street lamps from a further distance than teh white ones. Therefore, fog lights, you see through fog. They're also (supposed) to be placed lower so that you can also see under the fog. Like when you turn on your brights and it's foggy. You become a deer in the headlights.

In physics class we learned that yellow lights increase night time visibility over any other color light.
