BMW 330ci Fog light Buyers Guide:
Deciding between OEM, Halo Projector, Clear, Yellow, and Smoke 330ci Foglights

02-05 BMW 330ci Fog Lights
BMW 330ci OEM Style Foglight Kit Overview
The OEM fog light kit is designed to be a replica of the factory 330ci fog lights. The lens and basic shape is the same. The only difference might be in lens color, which outside of the standard clear, may be offered in yellow or smoke (more on that later). If you have a set of stock 330ci fog lights that are old or damaged, then a 330ci OEM Fog Light kit is probably a good idea since they look roughly the same and install the exact same way as the originals.
Choosing the right color foglights for your BMW 330ci
Once you have decided what style you want, the next choice is color. There are usually 3 choices available for 330ci Fog Lights for both the OEM and Halo Projector styles: Clear, Smoke, and Yellow.
Clear BMW 330ci Fog Lights: The standard choice
Clear is the color of lens that the dealer fog lights came in and for good reason. Clear 330ci Fog Lights put out the most light of all the colors since colored fog lights have to add some material to the lens, blocking overall light. Also, Clear Foglights, both halo and OEM style kits, look great no matter what color your 330ci is. Also, if you are planning to add colored bulbs of HID kits to your 330ci fog lights, clear is the way to go if you want to maximize the effect of the new color.
The only downside to clear 330ci Foglights is that their “clearness” can be a liability if your foglights start getting old and worn looking after a few years.
Smoke BMW 330ci Fog Lights: A different take on a classic option
Unless you are going for that Japanese JDM look, Smoke Foglights are probably the nicest option available for your 330ci. At the expense of a marginal loss of brightness, you get a slick looking light that looks perfect on white and most dark colored 330ci. They are a perfect complement to tinted windows, especially on black 330ci going for the full tinted Knight Rider-ish look.
Being the darkest foglight, they hide wear and tear the best, but that also makes them a less than desirable option if you are planning to add colored bulbs or HID kits to your 330ci.
Yellow BMW 330ci Fog Lights: Aggressive and functional
Yellow is the preferred color for drivers going after the Japanese “JDM” look. They look exceptionally nice on high contrast color 330ci like black, white, or blue. Yellow 330ci fog light kits might not be the best look for 330ci with yellowish colors though (yellow, orange, some reds, etc.).
Another thing to consider with yellow 330ci fog lights (both OEM style and Halo Projector versions) is that they actually do the best job in foggy or inclement weather. Due to the wavelength of the light spectrum of yellow light, they produce the least glare against fog, rain, puddles, etc. making them the SAFEST color of foglight to get…assuming you are really buying fog lights because you are planning on driving your 330ci in the fog.
Winjet OEM And Halo Projector Fog Light Kits
Winjet is about as close as 330ci Foglights get to having a “name brand.” The quality is a bit better, and they usually install easier as well. Also, unlike X3 330ci Fog Light Kits, every Winjet 330ci Fog Light Kit comes with wiring harness and fog light switch (universal style in some cases), even for models where the vehicle should already have them pre-installed. This makes Winjet a perfect choice for people looking to make a clean installation on their vehicle that have harnesses that might be missing or damaged.
