Lights

Ok i now finally got the headlights that i just recently bought aimed right but i want more light output. I have plasma glow bulbs in them now and a set of sylvania cool blues that i dont know if i should put in because i dont know if they would be any better. And i was wondering what kind of hid kits anyone would reccommend. I want somthing simple thats not gonna give me alot of problems. And i dont really understand the hid thing. Theres no high beams in them or what?

i have the Sylvania Cool Blues, and they work great, but Silverstars are the way to go becuase they are the brightest bulb i have seen

as for HIDs, i know they have a longer lasting bulb that burns brighter, and looks great. they should be both high and low beams, but im not sure on the DRLs...anybody got any input?

your going to need to get rid of drl's, you have the option to buy just 9007 hid bulbs, or 9007 hid bulbs with halogen hibeems. THe only point of these is passing inspection becasue the high beems are useless (on mine onebulb even burned out after about a week). Like i said before, do a search and some research..

with HID low beams, you will never need highs.
