sup guyz,
I never got the Xenon HID headlights on my car. So now, i'm wondering if it's worth getting some of those aftermarket xenon or krypton bulbs. I've seen them on ebay, and some other websites. do you guyz think they're worthwhile? and if so, which ones are reliable? i also heard they aren't good under foggy conditions, is this all of them? or are there certain ones. thanks

I've been looking into this lately

and from everything I've read and seen the only decent white/blue halogen replacement bulbs are the Philips BlueVision H7's. They are a little whiter than stock, but not really "HID-ish". As soon as I have time to find a place to buy them locally I am going to try them.

ALL the others actually REDUCE your visibilty. Some other problems those bulbs have are:

- some will melt your wiring harness
- some will melt your headlight housing
- some produce so much glare that people will shoot at you
- some last only about 20 hours
