hey guys, new to the forum so bear with me.
So, my passenger side low beam bulb apparently died. Went to Autozone to get a new bulb but all they had were the recommended Sylvania Xtravision H1XV which were $18 and the regular ones H155W for about $7. And, the most popular one amongst this topic, the Sylvania SilverStar H1ST (which many have reported the poor life-line). About an hr ago I didn't know a hair about headlights but now after much research I feel like its become an area of expertise (well not quite yet since ill be asking for your help at the end) lol
Anywho, now just to ask for some help on which bulb to get. Obviously the Sylvania SilverStar is out of the question since i dont feel like buying new bulbs 6 weeks from now. I haven't read or found any reviews on the other recommended bulb, XtraVision H1XV, so im curious about how well these work. I dont really want to go with the regular $7 ones simply because im more of a quality type of person; therefore, i prefer something illuminative, long-lasting, and reasonably priced (when i mean reasonably, that excludes the PIAA's because I dont see myself paying $60 for headlights).
I checked that autolumination.com site which seems like gold but makes me skeptical- $3.99 for each H1 bulb?? makes me feel like im purchasing a $3 shirt that will be useless after wearing it 4x. Another person mentioned danielsternlighting.com which the H1 bulbs go for $15- sounds good to me but how legit is the site since i have to email my query info and stuff? Are there any other more H1 low-beam options other then the ones ive mentioned?
Lastly, keep in consideration im looking for a crisp white illumination whatever K factor that may be (6k or 8k?).
MUCH THANKS APPRECIATED!!!!
edit: k so i went with the xtravision and this how-to couldnt have gone any smoother; thanks a mil to the poster for the help and saving me $$$ for sucha measly job!!
