The 55W'* are good for me around these cornfields on the westside. Great for spotting deer on the back roads.

What did you ask about them?

I got them at AZ. Right off the shelf. They're noticably brighter when compared to the 95 (running 55'*).

Because of the reflector design of the cyberwhites, I STILL don't get brighted by oncoming cars. I leave them on constantly (both cars).

I did no wiring upgrades or fuse changes in either car. Keep in mind that doesn't mean jack diddly for other years. There'* huge wiring differences just between my 93 and 95. Even more in 96.

so any 100w h3 (think their h3).

im on gonna do the upgrade if and when the current bulbs burn out. but their good enough for me as they are now.

Our 94 has cyberwhites and they are awesome, the GTP also had them and i never had to take off my blackouts at night because they were so bright, im hoping for my bday to have some cyberwhites for the 92SSEi. Sure is different than the GTP, still takin some getting used too. Oops Sorry, Back on Topic, i like the Cyberwhites and they just ran through my stock wiring, i just cut the ends, and used connectors so that if i ever had bulb replacement, it would be easy, but its been 2 years on the SSE and still have had no problem and they even made it through when i hit the pole in the walmart parkinglot a couple ya years back, not a single scratch, the ones on the GTP however weren't as fortunate, and u can get the cyber'* at walmart and they install in like 30 minutes, but it may take u an extra few minutes, cause its easier if u use the stock mounting bracket and just remove the old fog light from it

The PIAAs have the same setup as the angel eyes, so what did everyone with AEs do for the ring lamp? Since the ground and power wire will goto the old wires[which wire color is the hot one for the cars fog, not the lite], how did you hook up the ring lamp wire, I mean how did you work it.

Well in the set its 1 switch with a I-O-II setup. But im wiring into the exsisting fog wires for the light itself. What i need is ideas on how to wire the halo itself. The power and ground come from the fog lamps + and - wires.

You have 3 wires? Ground the ground wire, foglamp power to your stock fog wiring, and wire the ring power to your parking lamps.
