BESIDES GOING WITH A HID KIT WHAT LIGHT BULBS TO USE TO GET THE BEST EFFECT?

Saw a post a while back. I want that look with my Low Beams as well as my Hi beams if possible. Also in my Fog Lights if possible.

HID kits are sweet, but paying for them is tooooo much money.
For my Celica, I bought PIAA Xreme White Plus bulbs for my headlights and PIAA Xreme White bulbs for my fog lights. As for low beams, I didn't buy anything cause I didn't know what type of bulb they were, but now I do cause I looked in the manual. I will probably get some PIAA for them too if they make the type they are cause I forget what type that is...
plus, the PIAA xtreme white's are soo bright, they light up soo much, soo much better than stock. Don't pay for an HID kit when you can get the same effect as these bulbs.

the difference between any halogen and hid's is night and day... you won't know the difference till you see it... in terms of looks from the outside of the car, they may look similar, but the visibility is seriously remarkable...
I consider it a very very good safety mod... definately worth the money.

get bulbs that produce as much white as possible. i've had my fair share with terrible bulbs with a thick blue coating on them...aka hiper industries. couldn't see anything on the road. sure they looked nice and blue, but they don't light up the road...at all.

i have piaa all around. they are quality (well maybe not quite so for the low beams...lasted only 6 months). quite pricey though.

PIAA may be more expensive, but just think if you are thinking about an HID kit. That is 500 bucks and if you have the money for it, then you would definately be able to buy PIAA bulbs. PIAA to me is the only good brand out there for bulbs. I have seen others I know are crap, but others I don't know about. I saw this brand I think Silverstar or something and they had some sweet bulbs, looked really good. I don't remember what the website was, I think i just searched in google one time for xenon bulbs. But really, if you want HID then get that cause HID is awesome. If you don't want to spend that kind of money, get the PIAA for the same brightness and intensity for way cheaper.

Ive got my low/hi beam "Blue Line" bulbs from here www.flosser.com/start.asp?lang=006

Big difference compared to stock. Great stuff thumbsup thumbsup

There are ALOT of bulbs on the market that promises you daylight in dark. Watch out for them. In most cases those bulbs have wrong geometry.
The only nice thing about them is the wraparound.
