Lightbulb

What are your opinions on these. I don't like the blue tint light bulbs, but they can be changed out to a regular white/clear bulb. Do these work? Are they brighter? I have heard the plastic is supposed to be a better optic?

here is the link

HID? Nah! They say, "Does not require any modification. Quick 15 min installation" , then say, "High Wattage 130/110W light output with only 85/80W current draw" . Everytime you increase the watts, like to 85/80W, you need relays to protect the wiring and the car itself. I tend to trust the ones which write facts.

I am maily intrested in the lens it's self. Your right about the claims, I can see through that (pun). I have seen these on the Detroit peed site for $100.00 more. My question is do they work? Are they what D/S claims are they brighter? The DS site says they use lenses that are polycabonite, is this just plastic like the ones in the link? These are the cheapest ones I have found. I am thinking of getting them, but are they any better than the hologen lights on my car now?

Joe, I would preffer glass lenses, just imagine if those plastic lenses get faded like the ones in some newer cars. I hate to see those beige colored lenses. I polish the plastic lenses on one of my cars, and after a month or so they get faded again. [img]graemlins/clonk.gif[/img]

Say 'Tempered Flat Glass' guys, so its not plastic!



I'd definitely wiring some larger gauge wiring though, simple job with a relay, some 10 gauge, and run the stock wiring to the relay to flip it on and off.
