Default Whats $120, infrared & is F'n bright?....

Ok so i desided to try somthing new that no one that i know outside of BC or in BC has tryed yet.

These are made by Toshiba
The High beems Are 9011 and the Lows are 9012

All Halogen bulbs on the market now wether Silver Stars ir what not all are about the same Lumens.

Reg. Halogen-
Lows: 1000 lumens
Highs: 1700 lumens


Infrared Halogen-
Lows: 1700 lumens
Highs: 2300 lumens

Theres not a whole lot of info out on the inter net on these bulbs but the Dodge Viper did use them as stock bulbs.

There some specile infrared Halogen bulbs.

Info from Rallylights.com
General Electric patented this new technology in 2000. Their intention was to create a bulb that emits about 3/4 as many lumins as an HID capsule at a fraction of the cost. The technology was licensed to Toshiba for automotive use.

The technology involves a specially shaped quartz globe which has multiple layers of semi-reflective materials deposted on the inside surface of the bulb. The coating reflets a portion of the Infra red energy emited by the filament back to the filament causing it to glow hotter and produce more light, which escapes through the uncoated forward portion of the globe. Even though the filament runs hotter, the bulb produces about the same amount of heat as a stock bulb.

Interestingly enough, the 9011 bulb can be used in a 9005 lamp with a simple modification with a Dremel tool or file. Due to federal regulations, we can not make this modification, but you, the end user, can. The material to remove is marked on each bulb.




Here are some pics of them befor i put them in.

9005/9011




9006/9012

For $120 I hope there'* a hell of a difference. Is that per bulb or for all 4? I guess if it were for all 4 it wouldn't be TOO bad.
