Has anyone replaced there fog lights to LED ones?

I seen a 2015 lexus is with LED fog lights. Looked really nice and wondered if I can get the same instead of these yellow ones I have. 

They were a nice white/blue colour.

Guys,

Fog lights are meant to be yellowish! Yellow light penetrates fog better than white light because it does not scatter as much. White light scatters more and some that scattered light comes back at you. A double wammy.

I know yellow is better. But in london you never really get thick fog. I've never had to drive through really thick fog. Like the fog you get up north on a country lane.

I recall learning that lesson very early on in my driving quest - "oh, it appears to be foggy. I'll just stick my main beam on so that I can see. Hmm. I appear to be in a far worse situation now".
