Default Light Bulbs???

I love the look of the Euro cars (BMW) with the blue head lamps. Is there a product to convert our cars? I work for BMW here in South Carolina and think my car is one of the classest cars in the parking lot. A german that I work with saw me getting into my car in the parking lot at work and said " I didn't know you had a fancy car" My reply was, ( Amerian made Buddy! ) but, I do like those blue or extremly bright lights.

I think it'll do find here in P&B because headlight performance is still something to talk about IMO. You could always get some Silverstar lightbulbs to juicen them up!

Blue doesn't equal better. Infact you get more glare off of snow and rain. And they are Illegal. I personally think blue lights are a fad.

Silver star is the right light, and the left is either a normal, or XtraVision Sylvania.

The best thing you can do is try re-aiming your lights on a straight road. See how you like that, and then check out bulb options.

Well it wasnt about whats best its about what he likes and wants. Sylvania has some Cool Blue type lights that you may like but the Silverstars are the closest you'll get to that look rather than the blue ones.

Thanks for the info but, Wow! $400 for low beams and another $400 if I want a kit for the high beams It would look good but, I think I'll do other mods first.
