W126 1990 Euro lights

Are the fog lights for the W126 with Euro lights amber in color like the US lights or are they white?
I want to go with the Euro lights but I like the amber color for fog and snow.

Thanks,
Dan

The Euro lights on my 84 380SE are white, since the lens is one unit. Hope that helped

Thanks Scott500SEC,
I guess I needed to be more specific. I think the coups have their fog lights in the bumper. I am looking to see if the fog lights next to the headlights are amber/yellow on Euro lights.
Thanks

On the US lights the fogs are a white bulb with a yellow (cadmium) cup that snaps on. There is no mount to attach the cap to Euro lights as I understand. You could try to locate a set of cadmium coated H-3 fog lamps (good luck) to keep the yellow light with the Euros.

the fog lights are white.

1.buy yellow "narva brand" h3 bulbs [ www.suvlights.com ]

2.if you are mechanically inclined, you can remove the yellow glass balloons and the bulb holder from your old lenses [fog reflector]. then remove the glass lens from your euros, remove the fog reflector, perform surgery on bulbholder [swap], put yellow glass on, put lens back on. fire them up.

i am eventually going to do the long term fix.

i've read it isn't so much the color but the fog pattern, that gives the best results.

the performance of the euros far outweigh the clear fogs.
