Hey guys I want to get some new lights for my car. I was going to wait til I got an NX, but since I found out that the NX uses the same 9004-type bulb as my current Plymouth Sundance, I figured I could buy em now and swap em in the new car if I like em.

Anyways, a link to one of the ones I'm considering is here. Has anyone had any personal experience with these?

Thanks guys!

Stick with the PIAA brand bulbs. They have 2 series. One is in the $20-40 range, the other is around $100.

the cheaper PIAAs are fine, and will last a lot better than most of the other brands. THe more expensive ones are actually and HIP bulb (which can be used with a Phillips ballast system to make genuine HID lamps)

If you want to go for looks then the "HID" blue bulbs are fine, just make sure you don't exceed the stock wattage by much or you might melt your harness. I suggest sylvania silverstars, which are very white for optimal light output. I've tried many bulbs in my car and the blue "HID" ones sucked at night and in the rain.

Autozone has them if you have them in your area. They cost about $40 for a pair.

Looks like I'll pick up a pair of silverstars. What makes these silverstars so much better than this cheap stuff? Why don't they work well in the rain? (I'm assuming the silverstars do, right?)

I'm a high school student with no job right now. Saving $300 for headlights when I don't even have a B13 yet is kinda pointless, no? :D Maybe someday for the HIDs... Anyways, I should be getting re-hired at my old job sometime soon.

i got some cheapes from napa that someone handed down to me. I dunno what brand they are, probably APC but their lightly tinted blue with silver tip and they look really good on the B13, specially with the amber corners, not deeply blue or anything

Dont even worry about lights then, there are a ton of better mods you can do.

I bought and used those ebay lights for a week before one blew, stick with PIAA or SILVERSTAR. You will pay a little more but they will last much longer.
