Headlamp bulbs????

Wut up people!! Well, I did a search for the size of our bulbs and I get an error message saying remote server down, so I tried. I was at Advanced Auto Parts the other day and I was looking at bulbs, and my question is what size bulb is required. I was looking at the APC bulbs.

I would recommend Sylvania Cool Blue bulbs.

Decamo has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I have sylvannia cool blues too. For the price they are really good and the increased visibility is excellent. Other brands are brighter though, like PIAA and Eurolite.

Yeah but the other brands might be running at a higher wattage. You could fry some stuff. I'm not too sure though.

PIAA & Eurolite are not bright [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]

I've owned them all, and Sylvannia are better. Actually, it's been tested that PIAA and Eurolite actually put out LESS light than stock. Up to 20% less.

Yep. Some of thost PIAA and other look nice but you can't see that good with them. Cool Blue gives the best light to see by. I've tried several and Cool Blue is the best and the lowest price.

As in actual brightness on the road Sylvannia Cool blues are very bright. Performance wise they are awesome but looking at them from another car they are not bright at all. yellowish compared to the Polarg superwhite bulbs I have for the 194's.

Bottom line is if you want your car to look good at night get PIAA or even eurolite instead. The sylvannia's cheap and good performance wise just not as visually appealing when looking at the car compared to other brands.
