Default Damn Lights.... (RANT)

Well.... last week I lost a 9006 blub in my 91.

No biggie... except I can't remember what type of blub I had in there... and a visual inspection of it had no brand markings.... so inorder to keep things the same I bought 2 "Cool Blue" lights.

Well.... IMHO... they SUCK....
I don't know what I had in there before (I think I had Eurolites or something).... but the "CoolBlue" suck.... very yellowish color ... compared to what I had in there.

Doesn't really matter because I use GTS Blackouts anyways.... but still.

So... no sooner do I replace my 9006.... when I lost an H3 on the 91.
This time I know what brand I had in there.... except they are out of stock. So I wait while they order them in, but alas.... wrong blub type. So I fork out the money for some "SilverStars". They are brighter then the H3s I had in previous, but the temp color is warmer... ie... not as white/blue as the other H3s.

Now (today) I go out to my 97... and find one of my halos on my Angel Eyes aren't working.....But that'* another story..... Will it ever end???

Is it something about this time of year.... climate... weather.... cold snaps... arg...

yah i def was mad when i first purchased cool blues because it is so misleading. i couldnt return them so instead i exchanged them for highs (which i hardly use anyways so it didnt really matter to me) yah sorry bout all the trouble i know how you feel. im not really sure how to fix the leds tho is it both of them or just one because if it is just one you could disect it and replace the led if the led was bad but the only problem with that is finding the same kind. i know how it feels to have everything go wrong, it sucks. hopefully you can figure out the problem with your angel eyes. good luck.
