Headlights Showoff

Whazup,

Please vote......

Edit:
I messed up the voting choices, please disregard. Just choose first 6 choices



My buddy just got an AV6 as a daily driver and want to upgrade just headlights/tailights, rims/tires. He chose tails/light rims/tires but can't decide on headlights (his car is black). I personally have no clue either which to choose so I'm asking here what do you think is the best for reliability and which one can he use for future HID or Xenon or Halogen lights so they not melt, etc. BTW, HID is not a priority but might be.

Here are the choices:


Option 1


Option 2

Option 3


Option 4

Option 5

Option 6

1-3 are all the same.
Never get the halo style (what a peice of junk thoes are.)
TYC has good quality. But i think i like the 1-3 black housing headlight. It would even be better if a retrofit Projector was done in it.

Thanks Axis but vote people, common now.
Ignore last 2 options (just first 6).

So JDM or TYC , probably TYC cause they look good and are those bulbs stay on long or burn up quickly and what kind?

I like TYC look/quality and bulbs I think are H1. Black JDM is good for HID though but nothing special on looks but better than stock with that orange line.

Im not sure. But i know that when you order TYC lights they come with all the bulbs. Let me suggest to put a black eyelid on it that would look good.

Cool thanks gang . The last question is what bulbs to use on low beam (I know they supply) but what type since he wants to buy bright as long as it doesn't burn or melt the harness/wires, etc.

H1, H4, 9006????????
