just a new update, both the Luminics H1 and H3 hyperwhite bulbs i had burnt out within 1 month of installation. I sent back the bulbs for replacment and had to deal with a long wait and incorrect replacments that I got sent back to me.

On a side note, I installed PIAA’s Xtreme White H1 and H3 and the LED wedge (super white, for the city lights (bulb #194). I had the LED's from autolumination.com that burnt out as well.

Although the PIAA bulbs cost alot more, they put out a brighter white light onto the road. It does a better job of lighting up the road and the cars, even for city driving with all the street lights. It does not get washed out as the Luminics bulbs. Much better than the Luminics. I guess you get what you pay for.

Also, I bought all the bulbs from autobarn.com.

Just to reiterate my feelings on the matter, I agree that Luminics bulbs suck total ass. I can't vouch for the PIAA bulbs, but I would guess they are decent quality since PIAA seems to make better-than-average product.

I&#39;ve had the luminics in my car for a few months now and I think they are definitely better than stock. I&#39;d love to see them side by side with the PIAA&#39;s if anyone can hook that up.
