Default Eurodezign light bulbs

Hi , I'm new here so I'm just learnin' the system! I was wondering if anyone has tried those "8500K Blue tint" Light bulbs made by Eurodezign . I've been lookin' at 'em on e-bay and was wondering if they would give somewhat of the same appearance as an HID light. Also , are they any brighter than a regular halogen or just more blue? I've got a dark blue met. 02 SLE and would like to accent the color with some sort of blue tinted lights. Can't afford HID though. Any ideas??

The Silverstar'* are much whiter than the standard bulbs, almost as bright as HID but nowhere near as expensive.

I've seem silverstars and they are white , but I'm after something with a blue tint. If you look at HID light "temperatures" (kelvin ratings) on some websites , the 8500K to 10000K temp pictures look like what I'd like to achieve. Just can't spend $250-$300plus on LOW BEAMS ONLY!!!! for HID. Just thought maybe someone has tried these.

do NOT put HID in a halogen housing.

And you need a little lesson on color temp ratings.

OEM HID is 4100 to 4300k depending on manufacturer. HID looks blue when you drive towards it because of the light bending around the cut off shield. NOT because of the bulb.

If you want blue light, go buy a blue bulb.

Color temperatures:

* 1200 K: a candle
* 2800 K: tungsten lamp (ordinary household bulb), sunrise and sunset
* 3000 K: studio lamps, photofloods,
* 5000 K: electronic flash, average daylight. A designation of D50 stands for "Daylight 5000K" and is the most common standard for professional light booths for photography, graphic arts, and other purposes.
* 6000 K: bright midday sun
* 7000 K: lightly overcast sky
* 8000 K: hazy sky
* 10,000 K: heavily overcast sky

if you want to see where you are going, OEM or silverstars are your best bet. If you want blue, go buy a blue coated bulb. If you want HID style lighting, go buy HID PROJECTORS and bulbs.

I,ve seen a guy with 8000k McCullough light kit in a reflector light of a Mits. Evolution and it looked exactly like what I wanted....Bright white light with a good bluish tint. He had 30000k in his low beams and they weren't as bright and very purple. These went through projectors , though.

In my cars and trucks I use Silverstars for the headlights. But I did try the Eurodezign in my foglights on my Grand Am. Instead of using the blue color that they claim 8500k. I used the yellow ones that were only 6000k. This bulbs were a big disapointment. I was hoping for a bright yellow color when lite. But they looked more like a weak flashlight that was left on a little to long.

I personally wouldn't try going for a HID look. Get some decent bulbs to light up the road and save the fake look for the ricers. On some of the truck sites that I'm on, memebers there put in projector style lights to give a different look. But shortly after they complain about how the lights work on the road.
