They were $15 each...got them from Pepboys. The package says "Super Bright HYPER WHITE" from American Auto Accessories. Just an OEM replacement bulb 9006 Halogen.
Not bad. Makes it look better I think, and better visibilty, especially since my eyebrows do cover a good amount of the headlight. So it should be better for me at night.

If your eyebrows are a problem, try shaving.

I don't think beer is the only thing.

there are 2 reasons to why that metal piece covers the bulb one is to projector the light to the back of the housing and emit it out onto a focused beam and the other is so the bulb filament is not noticable. the one'* i bought for mine are really the brightest blue you can get without going to HID. and the blue looks better to me. and the highway signs are more readable from a further distance. the thing that sucks is that there is not a similar bulb for the fog light so i had to give up and go with hyper white'*. i drove around for a month without fog lights because the color difference in the fog to the headlight.

You could always try to tint the fogs slightly or something, but that'* your preference i guess. It would probably tint too much too i bet.

Uhhh..yea there is. Look up either 893 or 894 series bulbs. They are direct replacements for 880'*. I am using them on my car. I have Plasma Glow'* 9005, 9006 and 893 bulbs.

The 893'* you have are also Plasma Glows? Maybe I'll do that to my fogs. Or maybe I'll just wait and get the Blazertechs.

If I decided to switch my fog bulbs, do I need any aiming equipment? My manual says don't change them unless you do, but I'd rather not pay someone just to change 2 bulbs for me.

Why can't you just point them at the wall at two distances and tape off a part of the lens, mark that off, and line it up with the new ones in? Did your car go in the shop yet? Think the 3rd might work for you?
