I think I decided on these. THey seem the most compatible, and won't burn up my wires like the other ones probably will that run at 100W.

Hmmm

I REALLY REALLY REALLY looked into replacement halogen bulbs a few weeks ago. Everything I read said the only "premium" replacement bulbs worth buying are Philip's VisionPlus european bulbs.

But they still are not "xenon-like" enough, so I bit the bullet and bought the OEM xenon retrofit kit from Bekkers and I do not regret it at all. They look great and were easy to install. But they did cost a thousand bucks :dunno: however in my opinion they were worth it.

I think HID without projectors looks bad and blinds oncoming drivers.

Anyway, here's a pic of my car with the original halogens, I'll post the HID's later tonight after my digicam batteries charge up again.
