Piaa's are cool. I know they're fairly reliable because I have them in my other car. I would, however, prefer something with more of the "hid look." The Piaa H7 are rated at 4000k vs. 5000k for the others.
I ordered three sets of bulbs from bmwxenon.com. I've had my low/high/and fog lights from them for over a year and I think they look 100 times better than my stock bulbs. The foglight bulbs look really good. I just blew my first bulb the other day and jimmy from bmwxenon.com sent me a new one the next day. He offers a 6 month warranty with great customer service. I would definately reccommend them to anyone looking to change out their stock halogens.
I've had mine for like 3 months? So far no detectable dimming or glitches.
yah, it is 100x better than stock halogens. You know those older cars with factory xenons that don't have the dramatic purple blue shifting light kinda effect? They're kinda like that. Great bulbs. (and if you look at the lights closely, there's a visible blue tinge. cool! )
I've yet to actually see my car in motion with the lights on. I'm reeeaaally curious as to how close the bulbs resemble real xenons.
