Maybe it is the bulbs in the car, rather, it's the bulbs in our heads...

I put them in mine and think they are great. I do think though the low beam lenses affect their brightness somehow. I came to the conclusion that because I put them in I wanted to see them all the time. Well when you're driving under florecent street lights, of course they don't stand out.
So I drove to the top of a hill and fired them up off the cliff, and man are they good.

Look at it this way, if you're in a white room wearing white clothes, do you think it is easy to see them?

I have another question on these Luminic bulbs, maybe I should be in the newbie section but here goes. What lights look better in your peoples opinion, the "hyper whites" or the "ultera violet"? I am looking for a really blue tint. Does the white give you that or do I need the ultra violet?

niether will give you that real blue tint look , if anything it would be a very slight hue of blue or purple .
if you plan to see where your going after you put bulbs in i would stay away from any halogens that make the color "real blue tint"

illuminics are more of a whitish lite than anything . the bulb is blue but it really doesnt produce a blue tinted light

I'm wondering why you would want a blue tint? Considering the eye doesn't process blue (being the longest wavelength) very well, I would think it would reduce your visibility more so than the yellow.

Look at it this way, you don't see sharpshooters wearing blue visibility glasses do you? No, they are yellow or clear.

i just put in the H1 and H3 lumincs for my low's and fogs. I am not sure of other people's reaction to these lights but when I wen driving today, the road don't seem to be as lit up as stock. I am thinking that I need to adjust the aim b/c I also did a tire rotation.

also i was driving in in a torrental downpour as well, so i am not sure if the rain would have scattered the light.

any suggestions?

These lights are not for you, assuming you want to see the road. I purchased these lights and find the highbeams and integrated fogs to be good, but the low beam is useless. My HIDs are now on order because I can't tolerate these.

Agreed, I couldn't see shit with the low-beams only. "Useless" is the word I would choose. But I too must agree that the high beams and fogs looked very nice and I could actually see more than 5 feet in front of the car with them on. Problem is that I was always driving around with high beams on just so I could see at night!
