^^^ Not anymore expensive than if your PIAA blows, I'm sure.

If you can't afford $300 for HIDs, I don't know how you can justify spending $80 on two lightbulbs that aren't even as good. rofl

ummm... the reason y PIAA's arent as expensive is b/c they are not as good as HID's. They r very comparible though so it is justifiable. confused

I will write this again. My MTEC fog lights went out. I don't know if it's a fuse, but I had the bulbs recently replaced by Toyota.
PIAA is my next choice. I might go for the GB on HID's if any one is interested here that doesn't frequent the other site. They are real cheap at $220 I think for whatever style bulb you need.

I'd just wait a while and get HID kit. You wont regret it. Plus not to mention you wont have that gay blue bulb in your headlight.
