I'm running the Cyber-white navigators. The best features are ALL of them. Tempered glass, 55W H3 bulbs, a better reflector design (puts the light where you want it), and they're slightly smaller, which allows more airflow to the bottom of the radiator on the SSE or SSEi.
No angel eye ring bud. < Kinda like that.

The Hella Optilux Angel Eyes, are BRIGHT. Can be used as your only lights, and you'd be fine.

But if things are on a relay (which sounds like the factory ones are) I might be OK....thoughts?

I have the Optilux....and YES...very BRIGHT!
I can easily go with my headlights off....

As for my wiring....I have the main bulbs wired to the factory wires...I cut the 880 harness off
and soldered and shrink tubed new quick disconnects.
So I am still using the factory switch seein i don't like non factory switches so much
They Halo ring is going to my parking lights...

I am in process of bypassing the fog off on high beam thingy...

Willwren, do you have a pic available (or could you post one) of your Bonny with its headlamps and Cyber-whites turned on? I'd like to see the light color difference between the two. I am really not a big fan of white lamps that actually look BLUE... but I did see Cyber-whites on clearance at my local Walmart for $25.00 (regular $29.99 according to the price tag), and I'm trying to decide whether to buy a set. TIA -

Wow, I'm surprised.. those really don't look much different at all. Would you describe the color any differently "in person"? And I'm sure this has been asked & answered before, but how did you mount the Cyber-whites behind the front bumper?

Since my stock fogs were pretty beat up, these are much whiter. The only time I see any blue is when they're off. But my car is blue, so it looks fine to me...

But the CyberWhites put out a nice clean white light

You take the stock fog out, and remove it from the factoy 'C' shaped bracket. Then you mount the fog to the inside of the bottom portion of the bracket. Then mount the factory bracket in place again and adjust using the slots in the cyber whites bracket to center the fog in the hole. Whole thing takes less than an hour, very simple to do.

The cyber whites have a blue lense, but put out a AWESOME white beam. $25 is good, I paied $40 for mine.
