Default dissapointed in the light upgrades..

hooked up the piaa xtreme white plus lows (xtreme cool blue white light) they're not even that white or anywhere close to blue.. still have a yellow tint to them. Also the silverstar highs are worse.
the only thing I like is the silverstar turn signals that I changed, they look cool at daytime and at night they have a more orange glow.
Feel like waisted money though

Sounds like the lens needs cleaning? Try polishing them with Plastic-X from Meguiars, does a good job of taking out haze and small scratches.

You find SS highs to be yellow? They are so far from yellow.

Yes, that is a reflective device, it is needed for the light to function correctly.

I've got PIAA something or others, supposedly their brightest and bluest at the time. They are bright as hell, much brighter than Silverstars, but not as blue. But they do get this intriguing blue dot in the middle when lit.
