    Default Decent Xenon Bulb Replacements

    Are there any decent brands of Xenon replacement bulbs that don't burn out in a few months?

    The cheap crap on ebay all burn out in a few months.

    I'm looking for an H1 bulb, is MTEC a pretty decent choice?

    EBAY

    Let me know what your suggestions are.

    They will last you about a year with regular use. $60 a pair in town isn't a bad price either.

    If you find the PIAA's to be too expensive the Sylvania's are a good choice like Jeff suggested.

    Hey rip

    Mtec H1 are awesome! I've used them on many other cars such as a civic, integra, crv and they have never burnt out at all.

    Better then Silverstars and are closest to HID look

    I have a set for sale only $30
    Used only since September 22/05
    Just took them out, going to sell my car.

    I'll give you the receipt as well they have a 1 year warr.

    fuck halogen bulbs, invest for an hid kit you won't ever go back. HID "look" is not worth $30-50 a bulb...what the hell is the point of HID look(temp) when you got nothing close to HID lumens hahaha misleading advertisement i tell ya.

    The Helios HID kit is awesome, and reasonably priced. Comes with Ballasts, igniters, and 2 bulbs.

    Yep, they might get the color temp, but they dont get near the luminens...what is it again, 1800 for halogen, 3200 for HID. No comparison.

    It doesn't matter what color the LOOK like... it's also how much light is being projected onto the road. It's like driving down the road with "white" lights but heck... a flashlight could throw more light onto the road.
