HID look...

I have been in search for the perfect bulb to imitate the HID look, with out having to spend $500+ just to get them. I have purchased the PIAA Xtreme White lights and didn't get what I was looking for. Sure, they were good and made things a lil brighter... so then I had to change my parking lamp to match the brightness of the PIAA's. A local car part store said I should install white PIAA 194 LEDs as my the parking lights to match! I really like the look of the white LEDs, (which is closer to the "look" I'm looking for) but they don't match my low beams! What bulbs will???

The above web-site has a pretty convincing page, except for the fact, the picture they use as an example, is a picture of a BMW (which I am sure already has the HIDs as a factory installed item.

Take a look, and tell me what you think. Any recomendations on any bulbs. I would show a picture of the different lights I have installed although I don't have a website to link them too! If you really want pics, I guess I can e-mail them to you...

Am I a dealer??? NO. Is the site a dealer's??? Probably.

Just sharing what I found, for those with the same dilemma, in trying to match parking lights with modified head lights.

On the same token... If you do have the HID lights, and have not touched your parking lights I suggest looking at getting some white LEDs to match.
