Autodezigns lights - What do you think?



Hey guys. I want to upgrade my bulbs. I am thinking of getting either the MTEC or this brand from Ebay called Autodezigns. The MTEC one is $60+shipping and the Ebay one is $40 shipped. These are the prices for high, low, and fog.

Which one do you think? I have read about some horror stories regarding the MTECs but for the price, it is pretty good. What about Autodezigns tho? Anyone ever tried brand? Should I give it a try and see how it goes?

Thanks.

O yea, meant to post Eurodezigns, sorry. But any other brand other than these two? Looking for white white, not blueish white.

MTEC's shine pretty white, with a tinge of blue to 'em.
They're not as blue as the others though.

Btw, I'm happy with my MTEC's grin

K I won the auction.

I should order the

Highs - White
Lows - White
Fogs -Yellow

Is it legal for the Fog Lights to be yellow? I am in Cali if this makes a difference.

Or should I just go with all White? Theme of the Celi is Silver, Black. Tint of Red because of the GTS and the TRD badges.

hahaha 5 hp that's funny

I posted some pictures of my eurodezigns couple weeks ago.
Eurodezigns are brighter or whiter... than MTECs and also all the lights that they make are 8K. At least that's what it says on the box.

I don't know how long it lasts though... hope it's at least 6 monthes

They are not 8K. I was chatting back and forth with one of the distributor on Ebay and he said that they are still trying to get the 8K over here but those are not DOT approved so he does not know if it will damamge the wiring or not. The ones that are up on Ebay are 6K.

Thanks, I will be using your image to ask around.

I got a question since you have them, what color do they shine?

It was bright white with a hint of blue
But I check the lights out everyday and when I'm driving I'm seeing a hint of green instead of blue.
It's not much or could be my eyes but one thing for sure it was brighter than some of the Lexus HIDs and some Benz also.
Wait... not brighter... whiter... i don't know about brighter... because we were just side by side driving
