i have the mtecs and the piaa's and mtecs look just about the same with that nice bluish tint in the white light. honestly they kinda look like 4800K xenons. Isay go with mtecs, and they cost a fraction of what the piaas cost. thumbsup

If you buy PIAA's, you might as well just buy an HID conversion kit IMHO. Only a few hundred bucks more and they last longer and they are muy muy better.

not really, HID kit is totally different and everything..and you're still paying less if you get PIAA...
but if not, get MTEC's..
I'm most likely going to get PIAA low's to have full PIAA lighting.

Well, I think that if he is going for "looks" the m-tecs will do just fine...and they also cost much less. There is a big cost difference between a $20 dollar light bulb, with easy install; And a real HID kit which is $350+ and install takes more time (removing bumper, removing headlight, drilling, etc.) Before I got my HID's I had M-Tecs and they looked great! thumbsup
