Default headlight Color

alright, im trying to give my 93 a lil more sex appeal and class as far as looks go. now i was thinking about purchasing a different set of bulbs to give it that extra expesive car look.but i need quality and looks. i brand and grade that allows me to see a well amount of distance.does anybody know the type of that will get me that blue shine because i dont want to go out and buy bulbs and come to find out that they give off no blue tinted light what so ever. Thanks, Rome

I know the feeling.
I bought PIAAs a while ago, after having the guy tell me repeatedly that their the blue ones only to come home and find out they're less bright than OEM.
But you're thinking of HID lights.
I think this is where I got mine. http://hidworld.com/
Search around and read up on them.

Those Silverstar bulbs actually claim on the packaging that they have a bright white light. It'* just subtle as compared to the Cool Blue they have right on the top of the packaging.

those things are expensive!! espicially for headlights. but if i were to get them i would have to change the whole inside housing of my current lights right? so if i were looking for something inexpensive, should i opt. for the Sylvania Xtravision because i heard that they were brighter than the Silverstars yet still have a visible amount of blue tint in them
