HEadlight BUlbs??? Which ones to buy???

I have had my headlights cleared for a while and i am wondering what headlight bulbs work the best for producing a white pure white... i have searched and think its between piaa and sylvanias for the headlight, but what about turning bulbs and parking bulbs??? any opinions?

thanks

Mullinad

I have the sylvania cool blues myself. The light is very bright and almost completely white. They are way better than the stock bulbs and are worth it for the increased night vision. The parking lights I got from the local tuner shop for about 9 bucks and they are some japanese brand. I just replaced the blinker bulbs with some of amber color.

i use nokyas - VERY blue, but i love the look. then again, my headlights are black. GE super blues and the sylvanias are good for white light, though, and cost a fraction of the piaa's

I would be carefull with the xenon bulbs. I have already gone through two pair. They last for about 3 months in
my car and then explode. It is a pain when they do because I have to open up the headlight and clean the inside. I just got the piaa hyper-white 80/80's

Explode I have PIAA too all around on my headlights and never had any of them explode on my old civic yes because water was soaking into the housing but that sounds kind of weird that they are exploding. But interesting

I have PIAA Super plasma... They only last a few months but they have a life time warrenty.... It's the closest you will get to real HID's... Produce that white/purple color.

piaa's and polar G's were too expensive for me. I got a pair of Nokya arctic whites and they were soooo blue i loved them. But one of them blew out on my after 4 months. I replaced them with OptiBlue. They are more white and much less blue ... but they are BRRRRIIIIGGGGHHHTTTT. Supposedly they come with 5 year warrantee (said so on the website but the packaging didnt say anything about em).
