Tim... I just bought a set of Wagner "Xenon" BriteLite (stock#:BP9006BL - from O'Reilly Auto parts) for our low beams.. They're made by Phillips, are rated 55 watts, but are supposed to put out @30% more light. I havn't installed them yet... but they only cost $12.00 each.. a far cry from the $40 to $60 that others advertise for similar Xenon charged bulbs..I will be installing them later today... From what I've read, most of the hype out there is just that... there is not much of a difference we can obtain in actual light output unless we're willing to shell out $1000+ for a true Xenon Discharge changeover... Let me know what you find out... meanwhile.. you can check out Phillips site.. (though they do not mention the Wagner bulbs by name)..
