Default APC titan series bulbs (rant)

these things are trash they are about 50% less bright than the stock amber bulb and somehow use less wattage. less noticable during the day. better when on a pitch black road. it was the worse 25 bucks i ever spent.

Well, I told you to get some PlasmaGlows. To be honest there are at least a dozen different makers of "hid" lamps. I probably just got lucky.

i dont like apc they are evil and are the reason there are so many damn honda modifiers out there yah they arent deep blue enough to get the effect and yah ahem but the xenon-white headlights (refrence my sig) are pretty good they are made by street glow so yah the work pretty good and you know what are evil cool blues omg they arent even the slightest bit blue unless you are about 80 miles away and see a small tiny speck of yellow with the tinyest tint of blue they made me so mad cuz i actually spent more on those then i did on my good ones GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR yah now that i have vented yah silverstars shold def not be that expensive cuz thats just crazy and my friend has them and mine have a better look so if you do go for headlights dont buy silverstar unless u dont want the blue lighting and if you really dont want the blue just get cool blue cuz i think it might even be more yellow than the regular bulb man dont make that mistake.......

I see more APC winshield stickers on domestic cars than on foiegn. But the reason why the street glows are brighter and look better is because they are 85 watss, compared to silverstars stock wattage of 55 watts for low beams.

I think its worse that it stands for American Product Company, and the directions are writeen in Japanese. I always tend to get a laugh out of that.

the reason i got the bulbs was because i wanted during the day for the whole headlight and corner assembly to be clear because anyone knows with te 96+ that the amber reflects and shows that ugly color on the headlight when they are not on. i didn't ant any signs of color on the housing. but i guess i will just stick with this till i get my headlight covers done
