Wanting to change the bulbs in my car.
Was going to go the HID way but seeing as the projectors alone are $700 a pair thinking i'll just go the bulbs instead.
Looking at the Philips Crystal Visions.
Anyone got any other recommendations?
I dont really want to compromise on safety so whilst looking good is important so is being able to see!
Also, at Autobarn, these retail for 134 a pair whereas they are only 50-60 on ebay from international sellers. Although they say genuine i'm still a little iffy as to whether they are fakes or not..
HID's are illegal, save your self the potential hassle. Go Phillips Plus +80's. One of the best globes on the market.
HID's are illegal? Sorry if Im just naive but I had them on a Honda Accord Euro from the dealer as an option.. I'm pretty sure it was in the catalogue too. And nope they weren't xenons cos this was the debate i was having with my friend and we checked..
Also, I want a whiter light rather than the yellow so I agree thats a good bulb but yeh...
I've fitted Crystal Vision globes in mine (at $90 a pair at autobarn? where are you looking???), and they're great. I do a lot of highway driving, country back roads and night driving, so teh extra vision is great, as well as the asthetic of it.
One drawback is that the legal limit for luminescence of the globes is 4200K (Normal globes are aroudn 3000K). Crystal vision are actually 4300K, but you really cant pick them as being over, so you shoudl be right. The DIamond vision are 5000K. If memory serves, the Philips +80 are 4200K? (but not as white in their light). I used to run Narva Blue, but were no where near as good...
I just love the way other motorists on the highway think it's an unmarked cop car.........
And Yes, it is a manual
Whiter is better then blue. The higher the K the bluer it is and the less distance it goes. I get asked all the time if I have HID's because there so white and bright.
Ill agree with wraith on his recommendation +80's, excellent bulbs,
