both the same
would you rather pay 20 bucks for bulbs or 70, when they are just as good as one another?

^^^Much brighter and a lot more clear. But if you have a budget, MTECs. thumbsup

MTECs and PIAAs are both street legal, even in NJ. I think the only limitation is HIDs, but i'm not certain.

I have PIAA and those are the only thing I will ever use! They are very bright and very clear. I suggest to all that want to pay for them.
