Headlight H7

ebay has a few to choose from...6000K - 8500K

i'm looking at the 8500K's right now...is there any flaws? like would it burn out faster?? or something???

or should i just buy from Ecelica...the 4000K bulbs

my lowbeams are stock...can i just put those in?? or would it screw up everything...HID?

my one friend had lights made by fast/furious that were REALLY blue but they didnt last that long. i forget what the temp rating was on them. they looked great tho. the short life span of the lights may have been caused by his truck. he seemed to have problems with every kind of lights he tried. i'd look for the fast/furious if you want a blue tint.

well you can get some from the Ecelica store. they are whitish. brighter than stock. but if you want more of a blueish look, i say go for some Piaas, Nokyas, or some other brand. as long as it has the same watt output

yup they are just standard Halogen bulbs..

HID bulbs look like this in shape Linked Image



just don't expect those bulbs from ebay those Eurodezigns to be helping you see better at night.. might have a nice blue hue.. but in terms of performance tongue

if you cna afford it get liek piaa extram whites. they willb e pricy but look good. if you get reg halogen or zenon bulbs and want blue your going to loose visiblity. i had some cheapo non name brand h7 xenons off ebay in my jeep wrangler and they look good as in nice white blue. but you coudlmt see worht a damn

AZNclub I got those lights and those are 8.5K.
They tell you it's 6k but it's actually 8.5k
I like them a lot and it's whiter than some of the Lexus and MBenz that I've compared with.
But remeber whiter doesn't mean brighter!

typically, I would expect that the higher you go in color temperature, you are trading brightness/visibility for more color. I wouldn't go higher than 5K with halogens.

save your money, stick with your stock bulbs.

HID is the only way to go
