I have used 3 PIAA products in my last two cars (both Acura's). Although I wasn't impressed with the last set I had, I still recommend them.
On my 1st car, I had ion crystal foglights (forgot model, but they come in their own housing) installed and I replaced the stock 9006 low-beams with then latest Platinum Super White bulbs. All bulbs were still working fine when I sold the car after a few years.
On my last car, I replaced the stock H1 low-beams with Super Plasma (5000K). One bulb blew out in merely 4 months, and I didn't even drive the car a lot in night time. I don't know if it had to do with the harsh Canadian winter, but I've heard similar stories from other people who bought the same bulbs. And in case you ask, they were the regular 55w version, not 80w.
