Welcome to the club!

I would be skeptical as well, I wouldn't do it if it was me... but maybe someone has more knowledge on these as I have no experience with them.

If you have the cash, go HID lol

Just make sure they're not more than 55 watts, if they are, don't use them. If they're not, they should work but they'll be dimmer than stock and burn out MUCH quicker than stock. HID's, IMO, are the only worthwhile replacement over stock.

I wouldn't go with these, chances are they will burn out in a few months probably less. Go with HIDs if your looking for a much better output than stock.

I agree with everyone, but for $8.00 and 6 months it not that bad anything is better than the stock bulbs. Start saving your $$$ so in time that it take for these to burn out you can buy a good HID/Retro set up and be very happy with it.

Don't worry 98% of the members here purchased a set of those bulbs before going to HIDs.

The only problem with this is you WILL notice a decrease in the lumens or "light output" with those colored bulbs. If your just starting out and not wanting to spend alot of money then that might be the way to go, short term, if your just going for the look of it. If your going for performance (lighting performance) save the $150 and get a full Apexcone kit!

Welcome, BTW

I would suggest you wait for HID or stay with stock. These will last much less and you will end up joining the "fake blue lights" club...
