One of my lights went out, and I was thinking of going to autozone and buying the regular 9007 nine dollar bulbs, but then I saw these on ebay:

The description sounds nice, but I have some strange feeling about them. Sounds too nice and easy.

Can anyone give me a reason why I should not buy and use these on my car?

Thanks

Those are just Xenon-filled halogen bulbs. yes, the light output will be whiter, but it will not be any brighter than the regular 9007.

Those are the cheapest of the cheap.


Here you go silverstar ultras 9007 for $20. I got my silverstars off ebay.

You make no sense. You can't have a Xenon filled Halogen bulb. Halogen is the gas inside that produces the light. Same with Xenon. thats like saying f(g(x)) where halogen is f and xenon is g. :/

actually, there is only a trace amount of halogen in halogen bulbs, just to stop them from blackening. the rest is just a filler gas. in xenon bulbs, this filler gas is replaced with xenon, still keeping the trace amount of halogen. so yes it makes plenty of sense, there are 2 gasses in the bulb.
