    Default Headlight bulbs...

    I know, lame topic, but I just gotta ask... what kind of bulbs is everyone using?

    The only aftermarket bulb for my car I have been able to find around town (9007's) are the Xenon Eurolites. Unfortunately ANOTHER one blew yesterday, putting me on my 3rd set in less than 15 months... Only 30 bucks a set, but still, that's pretty sad...

    So, anyone have any good experiences with a hyperwhite bulb of some sort? Thanks!

    I bought some hyper whites from a one of those autoparts stores. They were like $11 each and mine have lasted me 2 years.

    I think you should just stay away from aftermarket bulbs. None of them seem overly reliable. For every person that has had a good experience with a certain brand there seems to be two that have had a bad experience

    I run a Hella HID Conversion using D2R HID Bulbs from a E55 Benz...and I use reflectors from a JDM Subaru Legacy...HID's are supposed to last a LONG time, like the life of your car...

    I had a pair of StreetGlows (Visions), one burnt out
    Then I bought a pair of Toucans (Contemporary) and used one.

    So I'm half StreetGlow and and half Toucan!
