Light bulb Form (ie. My (insert type here) Blew! mega form)

I decided to make a massive thread concerning all the differen't types of bulbs out there on the market. Hopefully Isaac locks this one so there wont be any more "My mtechs blew" threads again. My goal is to have everyone post what bulbs they have, and have had in the past. Which ones look good, which ones blew ect. Try to keep this civilized and informative. I'll start it off. thumbsup

Lows: Stock HID
Highs: PIAA Xtreme White
Fogs: Stock
Front Turns: PIAA Xtreme White
Rear Turns: PIAA Xtreme White
City: 5 LED matrix Hyper whites
Side: 9 LED hyper whites

Comments:
I have not had any problems with my piaa bubls all around. They all have that great white blue tint. No burnouts in 4 months. I got APC Xenons from pepboys for fogs and they looked exaclty like stock but dimmer. deff dont suggest them.

Lows: Nokya Arctic Purple
Highs: Nokya Arctic Purple
Parking: Polarg

I had MTEC lows, but the one I touched while installing blew in three months, and the other blew in six. Six months still isn't that bad.

I love the color on the Nokya lows... but they aren't as bright as MTECs. I'm not really feeling the color or brightness of the Nokya highs.

Lows: Stock (retrofit planned in profile)
Highs: Stock
Fogs: PIAA ION Crystal Yellow (retrofit planned in profile)
Front Turns: Silvania Silverstar
Sides: Stock

I found the yellow light of the fogs to be the only things I could see on rainy days.. my low beams are completely useless as far as visibilty. my 6000k hid bulbs were thumbsdown so I went back to stock till I get to do my retrofit.

Lows: MTEC
Highs: Some cheapass-expensive AutoZone lights.
Fogs: Stock (will switch to MTEC Ion Yellow soon)
Front Turns: Stock (removed orange paint.)
Sides: Stock spineyes

I've had my MTEC that I bought off of eBay for about a year already and they havent blown out on me. Though I once had white-ish fogbulbs but one blew out because my bumper was dragged when I was reversing out of my friend's driveway - the vibration broke the little thing inside. otherwise, it was a decent product; just a bitch to install wink grin
