In Reply to: PIAA Super White's posted by Tim Wasmer on May 13, 1999 at 21:18:39:

bought my PIAA's for around 50 bux, and although it's still pretty expensive for two bulbs, it's a cheap "mod" if you will, and still personalizes my car that much more.

The light is more directional, almost as if you have two flash lights. It is a bit whiter, but to say it looks like they are HID is a bit of a stretch. But when driving on the hwy next to another car, you do notice the other car's light is typically more yellow. Although it doesnt appear to add much more if any range than over factory, it does feel like it is a bit brighter than before. I plan on finding out how to adjust the headlamp this weekend and play around with that too, as I've heard you can direct them up more. Any tips on that would be appreciated.
Overall, I like the bulbs but they do carry a pretty high cost for admission. It's not a night and day difference over stock, but a very subtle change. For most people, they would probably think it's a waste of money.

: Has anyone used the new PIAA Super White bulbs?

: Thanks in Advance
