oops my bad...

he added the nokya as another lineup for customers.
it's whatever you choose, both are most likely equal quality.

What do you mean by saying that whatever you choose??

Isaac send me an emmail today saying that the mtec vendor he had is no longer selling the mtecs and that he did everything he could to get another vendor so for that reason he said that i could chosse between the Nokia bulbs or my money back.

I don't know much about those Nokia and the quality they have.

What do you guys recommend??

I say mtecs are much better, but...

What about those "other bulbs".
Nokya are worse than mtecs, or so I heard.
There are also Cuzo, Eurolite, KYO, Heliolite, Vestec, Litech (special for $9.95 for the H7), amongst others in the same price range as mtecs.
In this case I would go for a bulb that doesn't go above 5,000K, unless you want to not see the road or want to see blue/purple. Your choice.
All of these bulbs are the same, including mtec, except for the Kelvin rating.
Find the look you want. 4000K, 4,350K, 5000K, etc.
Also you have to consider the wattage. Some say high wattage and beware and get a wire harness to compensate. Might be a good idea or just a bad idea.
I know the Mtecs at 100W fried my wires a bit and they drain a bit more from the battery (look it up).
The lights still work all around so any other company promoting those 100W higher wattage bulbs will work fine. I do believe that.
isaac sell's the 100W=150W mtecs so they are good to go along with the "other" bulbs.
I guess not any more. Sorry isaac.

How about Piaa or Piaa Japan? What about Raybrig, Polarg, etc. on the higher price bulbs? Any input?

I just ordered some Piaa ion H3 bulbs for my fogs.
