while the Cyberwhites are a viable option.....i have to recommend the Hella Angel Eyes....

BillBoost has had BOTH the Cyber, and the Hella, and perfers the Hella over the Cyber by a HUGE margin for the light output and the visability...im hoping that he chimes in

now just to clear things up a little.

the Cyber white navigators may have sucked but the regular Cyber Whites are good, i had those, just that they suck for Snow, but where AWESOME for rain and dry

Walmarts Confusing.. they have more then one type of Cyer whites

Remember to check your local state laws about what type of Fogs are legal.

You can't really see them when installed. They sit farther back in the pockets. The blue lens is designed to filter out the yellow wavelengths of light. It produces a whiter hue.

The cyberwhites I had, had a blue incadenscent bulb in them, not an LED. And they sucked.

Hella'* For The Win in my book. Better beam pattern etc.

I didn't want cyberwhites because all of the models in stores in MN had extra LED'* to light up colors, or Blue tint which I don't like because it cuts down total light output, and has the possibility of glaring more.

I had Optilux/Hella Angel eyes, and they lasted for about 2 years, but one blew out due to water in the housing. The other housing has a cracked lens (thick glass too btw) so I dunno. The Angel Eyes were great on light output from the factory installed bulbs, a good color, and top performance. Aiming them was more critcal then others. I found the angel eye'* to be gimmicky and not something i'd use much.

I thinkt he H3 bulbs is the problem with the Angel Eyes. changing them requires opening up the seals, and increases the risk of water. I cleaned all surfaces, and ensured they were closed up and sealed correctly, but water still got in somehow.

i disagree....i have installed the Silverstar H3 bulbs after i removed the Stock Hella bulbs and have not had one problem with the lens cracking or water getting in...mine have been on the car....3 coming up on 4 years with out problems with the light itsself...the LED is another story
