yea same thing here...dissapointed with the pure blue luminics...they just had no light to them...less than stock!

so from reading the PIAA's look better than stock...so we'll see.

and yea...the takin off the bumper thing is a PAIN in the ass....takes like an hour to change the lights out...

*don&#39;t take offence...just messin around*</span>

i already have the lumunics pure blue bulbs in my H3 and H1 installed by myself....i wasn&#39;t really impressed with light output so i ordered the PIAA bulbs.

Is there an EASIER way to install rather than takin off the whole bumper...cuase thats what i did last time. I can&#39;t fit my hands in that small space without takin the damn bumper off...

any tricks????

Unless you have really big hands, then try this. Driver side, remove fuse cover for more room. Passenger side, remove the bolts from coolant reservoir then swing it around 180 degree. That will free up some space. It took me no more than 7 minutes for both side. I changed mine 3 times already and about to do it again after I order the PIAAs.

So, the PIAA superwhite low beams are the lesser expensive alternative to the HID&#39;s. Is tirerack the place to get them?

Finally put in the Piaa&#39;s today. Whoever said to do the passenger side first, THANK YOU!

I moved the coolant and was easily able to reach in and see how the "clip" on the bulb worked. From there it went quick and easy. (I did a few "test runs" with the blown bulb) Lather. Rinse. Repeat for the other side after removing the fuse box lid.

Also swapped out the 194&#39;s for some LED&#39;s. Much nicer!

My only problem is now that my Fogs are way too yellow. Guess I&#39;ll have to change those next!
