if you it to look white, then get MTEC for your lows
as for fogs, piaa yellow is nice
but keep in mind, yellow fogs are never bright unless they are full replacements

nope but i'm going to try it thumbsup it's been lagging..

going to put 6000k hid bulbs into the stock celica housing along with a lexus style yellow glass (like is300) insert so it'll shine yellow..

all this hoping they'll be no glare spineyes I had to bore out the h3 size on the stock housing.. now i need to align the focal point of the hid bulb like how the h3 was spineyes

BUT IS IT WORTH IT? Someone got some knockoff ones from walmart or something for like $30. I want something functional. But then again if it gets chipped or cracked?

key words "couple of months"

I think a lot of the time people say they burn out in about six months. If you compare that to stock, that is horrible. My stock are still going and I am driving a 2000 gts.

Yes, the stock bulbs (in Holland OSRAM 64210l (l=longlife) last for 450 hours. The normal bulb 64210 last for 330 hours. The top bulb of OSRAM europe the Silverstar (= not the same as the silvania version) last for 135 hours. The europian Silverstar (equal rated as the Philips Vision Plus) can be compared wiht Mtec. Only the Silverstar burns at 4000k the Mtec at 4350 and the stockbulb at 3330
