Willwren yup i know. and all those SS, or what not bulbs, still only put out about the same Lumins as the rest, just diffrent color Temps. witch makes it lookd brighter or not.

IF you want real more Lumins either have to do HID'* or what i got in that link p there ^

My borther and I have done alot of resreach on Bulbs, he never stops

I just look at whats out there for 9006/9005 bulbs

I like the SS Ultras, they are a bit better than the regular SSs in wet weather. And they are suppossed to last longer.

There'* a guy who pops up on ebay once or twice a month and sells SSs and SS Ultras unpackaged. I've always bought my SSs from him. Just got some Ultras for about $25 shipped, at BIN.
