    Default Replacement Head lamp bulbs

    Has anyone replace the headlamp bulbs with different bulbs other than factory? I need something brighter but I cant afford the factory HID setup, it's like $1200 per side. I was looking at the Philips X treme or Crystal Vision. Any input?

    Don’t know about the ones you mentioned but I replaced the headlight bulbs on the wife’s old car with Sylvania Silverstars bulbs and both burned out within three months..... and yes I didn’t touch the bulbs when installing them.

    Eventually went with NAPA replacements.

    I've also heard Silverstars don't last very long.

    Iím running some LEDS I bought from amazon.
    They work well and for right around $35, they were worth a try.

    I figure they are cheap enough to replace them every year or 2 if need be.

    I have replaced the headlight bulbs for my daily with LED after the silverstars burned out
    so far so good bright white IMO better light output than OEM.

    How is the cutoff with LED bulbs? Do they put out annoying glare like aftermarket HIDs?

    I absolutely hate aftermarket HIDs

    I think the ones I have are good. They donít seem annoying like cheap HIDS.

    If you wait patiently I am waiting on supernova v4 led bulbs for the headlights along with GTR fog light bulbs and the GTR parklights since I recently changed those ugly orange ones out to a nice clear along with the fog lights changed those out for the ones with the led halos. I ordered on the 19th so it should be here before New Years and I’ll post some pictures of the cut off.
