I just found this through google. I don't think anyone makes Yellow headlamps but you can make yourself a pair.

Arent those ugly and dont light very well?

Edit: Adding a layer of colored polymer will look like a true blue/yellow light, but it will block most of the color spectrum, thus lowering the output quality of the light

ECS has bulbs and DDM has 3K HID kits. Personally, keep them to the high beams only.

so there is no benefit other than that? why would some le mans cars have them then?

I thought that yellow lights had much less reflection, thats why they were primarily used in fog light applications. They have a softer light which doesn't reflect as much of the fog...
