  • Pretty good, but illegal in most countries

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    -Actually pretty bright, as they need to be since a higher color temperature (turning blue-ish) lowers the lumens.
    -The fact that these are more white than regular bulbs make road markings and traffic signs light up like a christmas tree.
    -Usually easy to install. Depends on your car, but H4 bulbs are generally the easiest. Quite litteraly "Plug n Play".

    Cons:

    -High power. Could be blinding to other drivers. Do not forget to check headlight alignment.
    -These are illegal in many countries, but its hard to check.
    -Heat up more than regular bulbs. This might burn off the reflective coating of your headlight units.

    OtherThoughts:

    They work pretty well. I've had them for about a year now and they still work. Qualitywise these are great!
    You should remember to check if these are legal in your country. They are illegal here but no-one seems to care.
    Also, to keep these bulbs from blinding other drivers, set the reflectors a tad lower than stock. Blinding someone might cause dangerous situations.

    Bottomline:

    Great if you need some high power bulbs. Just be carefull with them because of the aforementioned reasons.
