I have the Xenon gas filled filament lights for the high beams. They work well, and look different compared to my stock low-beams. They're tru-view'* by wagner. They've lasted so far, near 1 and 1/2 years.

If you are not impressed with your lighting, install a good set of bulbs, and have the headlights aimed. Most shops charge an hour of labour to aim lights, and are required by law to carry the equipment. (here, they are).

Aiming the lights can make a world of difference in performance of the lights.

Hope this adds light . Sorry for the bad joke. They arived today and the box does say "Off Road Use" I live in the country and may try them out and keep the old one'* just incase.
I like how they didn't say anything about "off road use" They are 80 watt How bright are we talking?

those should be fully legal. The reason they probably say "off road use" is the output color. Throw them in and find out.

they aren't HID'*.

If you're still not satisfied with the light output, I'm perfectly happy with my SilverStars... try 'em if you haven't already.

80 watts street legal? I didn't know that I thought they would be too bright, isn't the high beams 65? I ................ what'* the difference I know the tip of the low beams have that coating over them and the high beams don't does that play a major factor?

I thought these were for high beams. Are 80 watt low beams legal? I don't want to **** off people driving at me. The guy I bought them from informed me .they were for the low beams.
