Default Sylvania Blue Lights?

I was watching Hi-Rev Tuners on the Speed channel this past weekend and saw a review on the Sylvania High Intensity bulbs that give off the bluish light that expensive cars have today, however these are street legal. Can anyone give me more info on these?

They are supposed to be real good but you could find better ones on E-Bay . there is a whole kit for about 58.00 THEY DO outperform PIAA and all the outher 100.00 and up light bulbs!

Default HID LAMPS

Has anyone installed a set of HID conversions yet? I've thought about it, but the price still seems to be high ~$400. I'm curious how they look on the 92-95 bonnevilles.

See, here'* what I'm talking about. You have to install a couple of ballasts under the hood to start the light, because it won't start by itself. They aren't standard bulbs with filaments; they are a special capsule that forces an electrical arc to jump across two electrodes.

These are the type of lights that you see in the Mark VIII'*, Lexuses, and Mercedes. It'* a high intensity electric white color, with a side-effect of blue or purple.

I'm curious how they look on a Bonneville.

I used to have some PIIA superwhites on my 89 Bonny. The 93 still has stock lights. I've seen the cool blue halogens like some of you other guys have. Those are definitely a step up from the superwhites, and two steps up from the stock lights!

Fud, don't waste your money on the HID'*. The sylvania cool blues have a very true bright white color, and emit 20% more visible light.....for alot cheaper. Ok, to be honest, I HATE HID'*.
