Hey, I was wondering 2 things.

1.) What is the color temperature of our stock headlights, like what " K " ?
2.) Has anyone tried the PIAA H1's that are for 50w but put out 100w @ 4000k ?
Here's the info on them.

PIAA’s Xtreme White technology

I'm wanting to go with a more crisp white with hint of blue for my headlights / lowbeams, but without going to HID's , don't have the cash right now. Came across these PIAA's awhile back.
Cheapest H1's that I've found are on autolumination, they have light a Xenon Crisp white, and an Arctic White. Anyone tried either of those ? Those are all found HERE
Found some other supposodely "crisp" ones at streetglow.com, found ----->Streetglow Xenon-white bulbs
And the all famous burn out Sylvania Silverstars .... that'll be a last resort !

Any of you guys have reviews or stats on any of the following bulbs, or recommendations ?
And don't forget, if you know the color temp of our stock headlights, share the info with me Thanks .

I think the regular halogen light is rated around 3200 K. Look at this link for temperature guide of headlights.

Anyway, I have the PIAA H1 bulb that you're talking about. It's 100% white without any bluish tint. That's why it's rated 4000 K. If you want bluish tint, I think you should buy other bulb.

The autolumination bulbs are very cheap. Make sure they are 55W. If they are 100W, you might burn your electrical wires. Anyway, because they are cheap, maybe you want to buy them just to try them out (and let us know if they are any good).

There's also PIAA H1 bulb that is rated 7500 K on ebay. It's expensive! But it might be worth it if they look like HID.

Allright, I emailed autolumination inquiring about the wattage of their bulbs as well as asked them the color temperature of the 3 types of H1 bulbs they have. If they aren't at least 4000k then I'll go with some PIAA's. I found some 4700k 55w H1 bulbs on ebay, those should be just about right, pretty crisp white anyways. 7500k's waaaay to blue for me, thanks for the heads up though, saw those on ebay as well.

I'll keep you guys updated Thanks for the helpful info !

Just wanted to let those who are looking for bulbs on ebay to be aware of the so called 6000k eurodezigns, they look yellowish. I compared it with my stock bulbs, and they are almost similar. I bought the mtec 55w 4350K, and they are pure white. Only time I see a hint of blue, is when I pull up in my driveway and the light shines on our white bricks, also when it's in the garage and it shines on the garage door.

Allright, I'll do that for ya ! They emailed me back, here's what they had to say:

HI-

We do not have actual color data on the bulbs, but the super white have* a slight blue tint, and the neon blue are a more noticeable cyan color.

Here are more details on color:

So, I'll buy a set of the Super White Xenon's and test them out for us
