    PIAA Xtreme white plus halogens [VIDEO]



    I just installed these. Dont want HIDs till i find a legit place to buy some.
    I dont want cheap ebay kits cause they dont last. Same goes for DDM tuning.
    Watch out for slim kits! Ha

    Im satisfied

    I might just get these instead of HID's for now. I just want the pure white look and probably get the 2500k nokya yellow fog lights. These seem to produce alot more light than the Nokyas for the white

    I head the PIAA bulbs only last about a year? Does anyone have experience with this?

    I had a set of Hyperwhite's in my truck for a few years. It's a '98 and I bought it new. I didn't replace them til a few years ago. Lower life can be attributed to any type of contamination getting to the surface of the lamp. Especially oil from your fingers or touching the sides of the housing which has a lube to seal the housing. Always clean the lamps with alcohol before install, you never know who could have handled them even before they were boxed. I Tried a cheaper alternative first because and the blue coating literally burned off after a few months. PIAA makes top quality stuff, you won't be dissapointed.

    Any tips for avoiding touching the sides of the housing?

    Be careful wit cheap hid kits. Their ballasts can fry your fuse in less than a year. Also our headlamp housing is made for halogens; for perfect light distribution. Hids will cause random streams of concentrated light to shoot everywhere, thus they are meant for projector use only. Dont be surprised to see your housing bubble up from the heat of hids over time

    but a question about the last thing you wrote

    HID's barely give heat... is it not heated gas that illuminates?
