CATZ replacement bulb

I am on a move to buy some replacement bulbs for my 98 Accord.
I was looking at Catz Galaxy white 4300K bulbs. I am not sure if it's HID, but it said HID power...hmmm.
Any advice or have anyone tried these bulbs? Would you go with Piaas?

Thanks.

You can be 100% sure that it's not HID. If it looks like your stock bulb there's no way. HID requires a starter and ballast to work. Companies these days abuse the words HID and xenon.

If you're looking to replace the stock bulbs, I would highly recommend the Silverstars. I had them in my car for a long time until I installed my TYCs. I gave the bulbs to my friend and they've worked great for him ever since. The color and brightness are exceptional in the stock housing.

I appreciate your comment sooooo much. I am very very new to this hobby. I can't really tell the difference between the Wal-Mart brand to Catz or Piaa. Maybe the brand name.
I just want a hight quality bulbs around 50 bucks.
Now, I still have my stock headlights. Have anyone tried to the projector lights? I see many for sale on ebay for 100 to 200 bucks. Thanks

The only projectors out there that are worth anything are the TYCs. The G2 and angel eye halo BS ones are complete and total crap. They use fog light projectors and look crappy.

I highly recommend the TYCs. They look great and the beam pattern is amazing. There's tons of pictures of them around if you do a search.

Catz Galaxy White bulbs are pretty good. They're purplish white and last about a year. Decent bulbs like the PIAA's.

Thanks for your posts. I had RAZO before and they lasted a year as well. I really liked RAZO but I can't find them here in the mid-west anywhere. So I only have a choice of Catz or Piaas.
Thanks guys.
