You can try them and let us know!

Note that the shipping alone is almost $10. Plus the seller is new (got no feedback) so you're taking chances here.

Or you can try buying cheap bulbs from here

I ordered LEDs from autolumination before. However, I haven't ordered H1 bulbs from them so I don't know the quality. But for $2+ per bulb, you can buy several and try them out.

Or if you want, you can always buy PIAA Extreme White. That's what I have on my car. Except don't expect bluish tint because it's 100% white.

But if you really really want HID look, there's no other way than getting a real HID. Just getting bulbs (no matter what the advertisement say) will not look like you have a real HID system. It will look brighter, whiter, more bluish or whatever, but it doesn't have the HID effects (blue from far away but getting whiter as you are getting close to it).

I'm against these bulbs... they are simply crap.... they cost so little, because they are crap... they are dim (coated to look blue/white) which reduces light output.... plus they burn out quite frequently. I don't know... if you keep buying these over and over again since they burn out.... you would have been better off with quality HID's which will outlast your car. Plus HID's are a BAZILLION times brighter.... well, maybe not BAZILLION.... but they are much brighter than these craptacular lights.

My PIAA is still running for more than a year now. My PIAA on my other car is still running after 3+ years.

I can see better than stock using PIAA. Yes, they're not HID but I can definately see better.
