I know that there is no bulb that will be able to produce the light or color of real HID's but what is the closest? Thanks.<br>- Ethan

Ethan,
See a couple issues there..... 1. Your going to get a 55W bulb with a blue coating, the blue coating will hinder the light output by ~30% so your getting less light than you started with. 2. They have 75+W bulbs, this will be brighter than the 55W but they will be running really hot, and it has the potential of melting the wiring harness from the heat emitted from the bulb. I am not disagreeing on the upgrade (or downgrade) just beware, in some locations heat is a major issue and could result in some costly repairs in the future. A colleague of mine put 9007 PIAA bulbs in his WRX Imprezza and it melted the harness and we are located in Mass, where its fairly cold.

Thanks,
Jeff

They are on ebay, he has sold a ton of these. I have already bought 3 sets and they are amazing, and no visible light loss. Plus the 4350k color is a perfect match to BMW real xenons which are 4300k
