    Question New headlight bulbs...

    So i decided to change my headlight bulbs to new ones and i found these on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/PIAA-...spagenameZWDVW
    and
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/PIAA-...spagenameZWDVW
    Which one is better? and i dont want anything to melt in my headlights so would any of those bulbs be okay with regular headligth without any changes?
    Thanks a lot!

    the specs say theyre only 55w bulbs, so they should product 55w worth of heat.

    Quartz lamps cannot produce anything above 4900K but those listed are way better than stock - actually almost any replacement is better. I did run 120w lamps w/o any trouble for several years until I got the HIDs but did have to go 5amps higher for each headlight fuse to keep from blowing them on high beam. But NO problems with the wiring or enclosures.

    I offer similar Quartz bulbs (4800K) for $35 delivered.

    Take a look at the Hella HL83210 for $28.95 a pair here: Susquehanna Motorsports - Hella H4 Bulbs

    These are great bulbs and provide clear bright lighting, backed up by genuine Hella quality.

    Tones bulbs are great! The light is very clear with no hazing at all. Highly recommended.

    With tone's bulbs would I have to change anything other than the bulb itself?

    Nope, just the bulb, but that's an ordeal in itself. I lost some skin, and came up with a few choice words in the process of replacing them.

    I have to say that I am using the bulb's that Tone sells, and they do give off a nice white light, but the bulbs are blue so when you're lights are off there is a little blue tint in the headlight assembly. I kinda like it.
