I have the same setup and it'* not crazy bright to me. Very few oncomers have flashed at me.

PIAA'* might be overly expensive, but if you pay 1/2 the amount for SS and they burn out in a month you'll feel like you should have gotten the PIAA'*. Right now I'm running SS in all my lights on the 95 and am just waiting for the first to burn out. When that happens hopefully 1993SLE is in the area and I'll steal one of his.

My lights are so far out of adjustment...all of them that is..that I'm surprised if they even come near the road.

Last night some guy was cruisn toward me with the highs on..one quick click and he was understanding my point.

The highs don't even come near the road unless I'm pointed toward the Rockies

A good many members have had them burn out quickly. As in too quick for anyone'* liking. One member contacted SS about the issues they experienced and the response was basically, because they are high perf bulbs they burn hotter and burn out quick. Expected lifespan is under 1 year.

Under 1 year expected! That'* poor IMO.

CFoote has the PIAA'* and while they are more expensive they seem more durable. They also throw great light and have no rice in them.

sorry guys just want to be sure on the PIAAs.

I want a color thats not too far off the Hella Angel Eyes.. any ideas? I'm thinking the
"XTREME WHITE PLUS" which offer a small blue tint, rather than "Super White"
just want to make sure, hate ordering the things then finding out you dont like em..
