Anyone have any experience with these? I want the brightest, around 6000k color that won't trip a warning light. The last LED headlight bulbs I used weren't even as bright as my halogen oe ones.

If you ever drive in the rain at night, you don't want 6000K lights; doesn't matter how many lumens they put out - 6000K does a terrible job of lighting up wet road.
If you can find some ~4300K lights, those will do a much better job as fog lights. Tough to find as an LED, though. Like thundershorts said, if you expand your search to HIDs....many more options open up.

clear lens fogs with good reflectors make a difference as well. My best lighting improvement was getting my cataracts removed.
