Eurolite Headlights

Hey guys, I'm looking for the HID look without the $300 being spent. I heard Eurolite Xenon Fuzion headlights are good...anyone have any pics of these or any other suggestions?

the "HID look" with halogen bulbs will either (1) provide less usable light than a standard halogen bulb, or (2) draw so much current that you greatly increase the risk of melting things, or causing an electrical fire.

my suggestion is to stick with bulbs that operate between 55-65w, and has minimal, if any blue tint on the glass. my recommendation would be to stay AWAY from silverstars, but to try Sylvania Xtra Vision instead. it will not give you the white/blue look, but it is the one halogen bulb hat gives the best output in my personal experiences.

Are these brighter than the silverstars? I thought the silverstars were the top halogen bulb from Sylvania?

output in lumens is comparable, but the color temp on silverstars is higher (bluer, not necessarily brighter). silverstars are notorious for premature failure. of the three pairs ive owned, none of them lasted for more than a year. one bulb even died just several weeks after isntallation.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I was replacing bulbs every 3 months or so. That was back in 2003. I'm surprised that over two years later, their reputation for premature failure hasn't stopped people from buying them.

word.

I thought they got better so I bought a set for my prelude. 3 month later(and I barely drove the damn car), one of it went. I got so pissed, I took both of them out and threw it like 10 times in my garage.

cheap $9.99 ebay bulbs lasts more than that. it was definitely brighter than stock bulbs though.

I have H.I.R. bulbs in my Highs and lows, I love them they are not a real white light but they will give you a lot of light over stock. With the High beams on it lights the whole road really bright!

I used to have a PIAA plasma on my old car and it works pretty good. It's pretty close to HID.

I have silverstars in my DRL/highbeam and they suck. Luckily they're where they are.

Luminics Titanium white are pretty good.

Output is So-So, but they look similar to HIDS
