Deciding between OEM, Halo Projector, Clear, Yellow, and Smoke Lancer Foglights
Mitsubishi Lancer foglights are one of the first things people buy after coming home from the dealer with their brand new Lancer.

Also, here at Tunersdepot.com, we try to offer a wide selection of the newest and best styles of fog light kits for your Lancer.

Mitsubishi Lancer OEM Style Foglight Kit Overview
The OEM fog light kit is designed to be a replica of the factory Lancer 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 Lancer fog lights that are old or damaged, then a Lancer 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 Mitsubishi Lancer
Once you have decided what style you want, the next choice is color. There are usually 3 choices available for Lancer Fog Lights for both the OEM and Halo Projector styles: Clear, Smoke, and Yellow.
Clear Mitsubishi Lancer Fog Lights: The standard choice
Clear is the color of lens that the dealer fog lights came in and for good reason. Clear Lancer 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 Lancer is. Also, if you are planning to add colored bulbs of HID kits to your Lancer fog lights, clear is the way to go if you want to maximize the effect of the new color.
The only downside to clear Lancer Foglights is that their “clearness” can be a liability if your foglights start getting old and worn looking after a few years.
Smoke Mitsubishi Lancer 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 Lancer. At the expense of a marginal loss of brightness, you get a slick looking light that looks perfect on white and most dark colored Lancer. They are a perfect complement to tinted windows, especially on black Lancer 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 Lancer.
Yellow Mitsubishi Lancer 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 Lancer like black, white, or blue. Yellow Lancer fog light kits might not be the best look for Lancer with yellowish colors though (yellow, orange, some reds, etc.).
Another thing to consider with yellow Lancer 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 Lancer in the fog.
