Well, every question that I can see has been answered by someone else, good work guys Umm, no prob on the vid etc, glad I could help!

On the note of them being a little dim on the low beams, I noticed this on mine at first as well. You can adjust the way the beam projects by these little hex screws or something, or so I've heard. Basically you can pull the beam up if you want, but I don't know how much that would help, as I've yet to try it.

backman, sorry to hear about your bad experience w/ the blue visions or whatever. These bulbs should do you good, they're extremely more white / crisp than the stockers. You'll be able to tell a difference, believe me.

Good, I had better tell a difference :/ I'm not real concerned about light projection since I have HID's for my low beam already, they do pretty well. I just want my damn fogs to match up closer to my 6000k's, at least get off that nasty yellow stock color so at least it can be noticed that it's aftermarket. I want a wicked lighting setup, gonna be cool once I install these luminics to match my HID's, and then install my angel eyes too they should be coming in any day now. woot woot =)

I doubt that even. You're not gonna run anyone off anything with $30 halogen bulbs, sorry. And even if you could, it would mean you had your lights aimed so bad that you've got no business on the road at all.

Ok, put my luminics bulbs in the other night, and have had two nights driving with them. They look fantastic from the outside of the car. But this doesn't help when you are inside the car, driving, and it is dark out. I am referring to the low beams, which seem whiter than stock, but they don't light up the frickin road! I have adjusted the low beam projectors to a few different positions (including as high as they will point), and I just can't get these bulbs to allow me to see anything. Black, I'm REALLY curious as to how you gave these such a good review. I'm not trying to flame here, I'm just feeling as though I must be going blind or something because these low beams are just horrible.

The high beams, on the other hand, are great. It's like noon on a sunny day when you click those on.

If anyone has any suggestions on this, I'd be really appreciative. Just sucks cuz I'm sick of the yellowish stock bulbs, and I sure don't have the cash for HIDs!

I dont have any problems seeing with these bulbs. But i do notice that it is so white that sometimes it blends in with the surroundings and makes it look like they are not bright enough. the high beans should be really bright bc its not a projector like the low beams

I think they are horrible, I posted my full rant in the seperate topic sry110 started but basically the light output on the low beams is the equivalent of a lit match - and speaking of which one of the lights burned out after just one week.

The same light in the hi beams arent too bad (I think) but low definitely sucked for me and I have perfect vision.
