cut off lines stock vs M-tec
Hello,

I placed a pair of Eurodezigns bulbs (8500 k) in my Celica. They look good, BUT.

I think the stock bulbs (Osram 64210L) produce better light. Yes the stock burns at 3330 k but they always reflect. The reflection of the eurodezigns depends on the color and material of the object, sometimes the reflect very good, sometimes bad.

My real disappointment are the cut off lines of the Eurodezigns. The are not that clear. The stock light produce a very clear cut off, do the M-tecs give the same sharp/clear cut off lines as the stock bulbs (Osram 64210L)? Or is the only upgrade (not HID) Osram Silverstar (64210SVS)?

Andres

so you dislike your Eurodezigns bulbs? I was thinking about getting their yellow fog lights. Yo Isaac, do you sell MTEC fogs in yellow?

I don't dislike them. The color rate is to high (8500k). Therefor the lightbeam is not so clear. And the are very cheap (H7 are 12 dollar)

well the higher you go, the less visible the light output is. although the color of the beam might be more of a blue tint or purple tint, but that does not mean that it'll be brighter.

Mtecs and stock bulbs give great visiblity output. thumbsup

the difference between $20/set of MTEC and $70/set of PIAA tongue

Other than the fact that both are light bulbs and they come with the same warranty that all light bulbs come with - I haven't compared the two side by side before... Although, a pair of Silverstars was provided by ct so we can do side-by-side comparisons between the two brands thumbsup

I'm thinkin PIAA might be the way to go then... I just don't want to mess up the harness or wiring.

the difference i saw with MTEC and PIAA is the color of the light output..
both considerably the same brightness, but MTEC had that real whitish/blue to them
while the PIAA extreme white are just pure white.
BOTH same brightness, it's just a preference.
