I have tried to take pictures of the bulbs head-on to show their intensity but invariably the result is either under-exposed or over-exposed -- if I set the camera to auto-exposure it reduces aperture and exposure to compensate for the bright lights, if I set it to manual-exposure their is nothing but a big white blob of light for a picture. I thing either I don't know how to set up the camera properly or I have a crappy camera ! The best bet is to check Jimmy's own photographs which are very good.
Also I am curious -- you write that "It is hard to spend over a hundred dollars..." on Jimmy's bulbs, but you have a Ferrari 550 among other heavy-breathing machinery !! A hundred bucks should be chump-change for you. ( My sincere apologies if I offended you with this remark but if I were as rich as you probably are I would not worry too much about spending $ 120 on bulbs. I am 30 years old and have a 97 540iA, my trusty Toyota and I am going to buy an 840 CSi soon. I can only hope to be rich enough to afford all the heavy hitting machinery you have -- and yes, I would happily trade in my wife to an MB dealer if I could get a CL500 for an illegitimate child !!).


: Ashok,

: I am interested in purchasing Jimmy's xenon replacement bulbs. I am glad to here more feed back about his reputation. It is encouraging. It is hard to spend over a hundred dollars on something I have not seen. I was rather suspect about the bulbs because there are hardly any guarantees no returns etc and it is almost as questionable as buying from eBay. Could you post a pic of the bulbs installed on your car. The feedback is reassuring but seeing is believing.
