Default Lighting Brand Names

Anyone know any good lighting brands other than Silverstar? Please let me know them all because I'm looking for something that can work for my low and high beams (headlights), my fog lights, AND my blinkers. Please let me know what you got and any reviews would be nice as well.

As of now I'm thinking about getting Silverstar for all three.

Ok well now I am looking at Xenon'*. Lol god damnit this makes me so angry because I have OCD and would like all three lights to be the same brand. Silverstar (4000K) is about 20% brighter then a halogen whereas Xenon (4000K) is about 50% brighter. Does anybody know if Xenon'* will fit for headlights, foglights, AND blinkers?

Do not get SS for the fogs,they take a beating and aren't worth it. Trust me,I know

autobarn.com

this more than likey should satisfy your lighting needs. U can pick up most of this in any local auto store also, I've found Pepboys to be one of the best.

the bulb may put out more light but it is WORTHLESS because your headlights are NOT DESIGNED for HID.

I'm not getting HID.

I'm saying that the Xenon'* put out alot more light than the SilverStars in the halogen form. The Nokya'* have some really nice 5000K halogens but does anyone know if the wattage will fry my wires?

Nokya Cosmic White 9005: 100W (Stock Watts: 65W)
Nokya Cosmic White 9006: 80W (Stock Watts: 55W)
Nokya Cosmic White H3: 80W (Stock Watts: 55W)

No, the additional load should have no adverse affects on wiring. Not sure what the additional heat will do to the lenses though. Where are you going to use the H3'*, in the fog light housings? This could be a problem with high heat internal to the fog light housing. The stock 880'* are 27 watts.

I was going to use Angel Eyes but if you check out my other post (I made so many :P) http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...942&highlight= it'* a little more updated. I really don't want Angel Eyes because I'm not favorable of the ring so any other H3 setups (not bulbs) would be cool.

Consider the Cyberwhite Navigators..many here found them to be a good no frills replacement. w/o the ring and w/o the stupid blue bulb (yeah..I had those)
