Low-watt purple fog lights or head lights

I think purple lights would look good with my redfire '6. Not purple purple, but the white-with-a-purple-tinge color you see from HID kits sometimes.

Anyway, I'm getting Silverstars, and since I have those fake fog light holes on the car, I was considering running some extra wire to put purely cosmetic bulbs in the adjacent holes. They'd turn on with the low beams, and look like fog lights, but be low-enough in wattage that it wouldn't hurt the car to run them parallel with the Silverstars.

Does such a thing exist?

Heck, for that matter, what lights do fit in the fog light sockets? Geez, I care so little about headlights, I don't think I've ever visited this section of the forum. I'm a n00B here :)

Understand suspensions? Please take the required measurements for my

You may be better off doing what ZeroEfx did with his lowers. There is a space in the fuse box for isolating the voltage for the fogs. A simple tap from there could do it.

For integrated fogs you would have to buy the kit. I believe the the wire for the fogs should already exist in the headlamps (correct me if I'm wrong).

I've noticed that some Audi's have purplish HID head lights. They're not as bright as lower temp, but look really cool, or at least different. :D

Just keep in mind that none of these bulbs are as bright as the halogens now in your car.

This is an interesting statement. So all those HID-like Xenon gas filled bulbs are just a bunch of bogus? The only brighter than stock halogen lights are the real HID and/or high output (80w or 100w) bulbs?

They are whiter/tinted color, so they look better. But that means their output temperature is higher, which means less light. (Although because they are whiter you usually think they're brighter)
