Default Piaa extreme white plus

Ok everyone I just installed a set of Piaa extreme white plus bulbs in my truck. I did highs and lows. Let me start off by saying the instal wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. The hardest part was getting the radiation cover off. I spent close to $200 on these lights thinking they would be a huge change. I was wrong. Not to say they aren't good bright lights because they are. They are defiantly whiter then the stock headlights but I guess for $200 I expected more. My mistake. I guess I'll run them for awhile and see what I decide but for anyone expecting a big change in brightness this isn't it. Like I said they are whiter. But not really brighter. And if anyone is interested id prolly part with them for a fair offer. Brand new just installed tonight on a truck I bought 2 weeks ago.

That is a bummer. To get brighter, you're going to have to go with HID's. Not really any other way around it. But, snap a few pics and show off your new lights. It's always good to share lesson's learned.

I'll post some tomorrow. I didn't take any while installing. I should have. I took a few tonight but didn't turn out very well.

thats too bad. i installed PIAA's in my fogs only, and have had a huge improvement! i would have done the lows too, but there isnt a bulb yet for the projectors by PIAA.

what brightness did you get?

I'm installing a set of PIAAs as well, and I was wondering what wire you guys tapped into to get switch power. I want to put it into the original fog light circuit, but I'm unsure what wire it is.
