Default Bulbs

Just to throw this out there. I did a lot of research and reading into different peoples choices on bulbs, and decided to first try the Philips Crystlavision Ultras for my lows. They are definitely a whiter light than the stock bulbs. With that being said, as I was driving to work this morning I didn`t see any HUGE difference in the distance or throw of the light, but it was a small improvement. For 25-30 bucks, I am happy with them. They ARE a little better. A couple o pics....This is with the new bulb in the LS.

Before I swapped all my cars to hid's I always like the PIAA bulbs.

@ primo spaghettii AND davenator, how's the crystal vision after over a year??? I'm leaning towards this brand, too due to price but it would be a bonus to know it lasts a little bit longer than silverstars. After driving more than 4 hours in the dark, I am convinced that I really need to replace my oem bulbs. Thanks!

i traded the truck in in Janaury and they were still a great light! worth the 30.00 bucks for sure.

i also swapped out the fogs in my new 2014 for the PIAA bulbs and that was a huge improvement too.

the fogs were easy to replace...i just puled the harness, twisted out the bulb and threw in the new one!

I looked under and sure enough- it's easy to reach! I'll probably wait til there's another mail-in rebate offer on the philips for my fogs.

I paid $44 plus tax today for the h11 low beam bulbs. I missed the offer two weeks ago! Oh well.....at least my swap went well coz i did not break anything.
