Like I was saying all along, 100% white without any bluish tint. Hopefully you'll like it.

FYI, I was driving from out of town last night and I didn't use the high beam once cause the low beam brightness was sufficient.

BTW, replace your parking light with something else man (superwhite or amber bulb).

Talking

Is that box of Tide from Costco?
PIAA's look great! I know you'll love 'um. I'm running the same bulb in my High beams. 6000k HIDs in the lows.

ya i ordered some superwhites, and wow what a difference these piaas make compared to the luminics. I had the luminic pure blues on for like a week and i jus quit cause it was like i had a candle for a light. I could finally see everything with the piaas. I think these r brighter than stock but im not sure cause i was stuck with candles for a week.

My PIAA's are on order too! Glad to hear you like them. Since Jax recommended replacing the parking lights with superwhites, what is the best match for the PIAA bulbs?

I'm personally using 4LEDs amber from autolumintion for parking lights. But it's really up to you though. I think superwhite LEDs or regular superwhite bulb will look nice too.
