I have recently installed the Mazda OEM Foglights for the non-sport bumper. I like the extra light, but want to install new bulbs in the low-beams and fogs. I'm torn between the PIAA Xtreme White Plus H1s and the Osram Silverstar H1s. I want the brightest, whitest light with the longest life. The PIAAs seem to last a long while and the Osrams seem to have at least marginally better life expectancy than the Sylvannia brand. So I'm torn. I think I want to get hte PIAAs, but am wondering if the extra cost is justified? Yes, I've read the threads, but haven't seen much in the way of direct comparisons. Also, with the PIAAs, where can I get a front parking bulb that will closest match the color? PIAA has a 168-style mini bulb, but the parking lights use a 194 bulb. Would these work? I would appreciate any comments.

You want the brightest, whitest any Halogen bulb has to offer; PIAA Extreme White. Next step, would be where most of are now...HID
As for the parking light, click here, and order the WLED-x6 in White.
I'm pretty sure you'll like the look

Sorry for breaking in to your post here, my bad man..
I can't seem to find the WLED-X6 on the site. I was looking to order something like this and found this post.

Sounds like something I want but can't find it on the site.

Also i found an Infra-Red LED . Can't think of how that would look. I am not saying I would use it on my car. Just in general i wonder what an Infrared lightbulb would look like. (i must live a sheltered life since I have never seen once)

Try this LINK

If that doesn't work follow these steps
-> LED Bulbs and Products
-> Under 12v LED Car Bulbs, click "Buy Now"
-> Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you'll see:

WLED 6-LED bulb
12 VDC 6-LED Wedge Base bulb (194/168 type)
Our brightest bulb of this type
Non Polarized
$ 2.99

I already ordered 2 sets of the PIAAs and 2 sets of the Xtreme White bulbs for the parking/marker lights. Found a good deal: $59.16/pr. Also got some LED's for the interior and amber for the sidemarkers. Gotta try the LED vs the Xtreme Whites and see what looks best.
