Default PIAA / Blazer 3200 lights are in

I just installed all new lights in the front of my car. I put PIAA 9005 /9006 in the headlights and Blazer Diamond Blue 3200 replacements driving lights.

PIAA headlights:
I prurchased the 9005 and 9006 head lights from the grand prix store. They are noticably brighter than stock bulbs. They also have a better white look to them than the original stock bulbs.

Blazer Diamond Blue 3200 driving lights:
This install was a little more tricky. To install these I had to do minimal custom mounting useing both the new mounting brackets and the original. The wiring also is aftermarket but uses the existing harnes as the on/off power source. These lights are over twice as bright as factory. They have a nice whiteish/blue color to them (more white than blue), they look a lot better with lights off than the stock lamps, and the shine very nicely on the road.

So if anyone is looking to get better lights for driving I would recommend doing both mods. The PIAA'* to replace normal driving lights and the Blazer 3200'* for a great enhancment to go along with the PIAA'*.

They are about 1/4" smaller than stock which makes them easy to fit in the stock openings. They are about the same depth as the stock lights.

which piaas did you install? I have the extreme white plus 9006s. I like them, but don't think they are worth what I paid ($80). I actually expected more from a name like PIAA.
I do really like the blazer 3200s, though.

I got the Platinums. They are better than stock but not as nice as I hoped. I think the design of the enclosure (aka headlamp) has something to do with it. It would probably be better if the lens was clear and they uesed the rear reflective surface as a difuser like they do on newer models.

One of my friends has the PIAA platinums on his Alero. They are drastically brighter and clearer because he has the clear assemblies with the reflective backing. I wish there was a headlight conversion available (reasonably priced and not alot of modification).

What the ....

I didn't know I had a "ADTR cardboard 'Red Baron' rear deck wing" and "curb feelers".

I'll change that in a few. I haven't touched my sig in some time. I haven't even got my last upgrades listed yet (heated seats, all the lights, etc...)
