Lights are next on my list. My drive to/from work is dark now, regardless if I'm working day or night shift. I'd like something better.

Also, is anyone doing anything for highs? I am looking at getting the Phillips Diamond Vision (5000K) H1 for my highs and H11 Crystal's (4300K) for my lows.


WHy not get H9s for the low beams and fogs too?

I'm just concerned with them being bright to the point of everyone flashing highs at me... Not sure if I'm being overly cautious, just not sure what the difference would be between 55W and 65W would be.

I have a set of Philips Xtreme Vision bulbs in H11 coming. I had them ordered before I read people had good results with the H9 swap, so I am hoping for a nice improvement. I did not want a tinted bulb, just more light on the road. Looking forward to giving them a try. Philips claims they are +100% bulbs. From what I hear the higher the + percentage, the shorter the life, so if they die prematurely I'll be giving the H9s a shot.
