quality xenon

I'm on my third pair of Eurodezigns xenons. They have a lifetime warrenty so its not the cost its just a hassle. I where gloves when installing the bulbs and my stock bulbs don't blow.
Has someone had a better experience with other bulbs. Please help, I'm in the dark
thanks

no offense, but thats what you get for buying cheap bulbs. they may have a lifetime warranty, but that doesnt mean they are made well. are they the stock wattage(55w/60w)? if they are more than stock wattage, that may be your problem. i have the piaa xtreme white bulbs, they cost me 80 for a pair. i have not had any problems with them, and they were very much worth the money. they are very bright compared to stock, and they look perfect too. my advice to you would be to invest in a better pair of bulbs. if you dont have enough money for some piaa bulbs, i would go with the sylvania silverstars. they are also made very well, and by a reputable company

Any of those cheap blue, purple or violet bulbs will burn out quickly.
It's a gimic to sell bulbs to people.
That's why they are cheap in cost.

The light might appear to be whiter but the illumination is actually less than your halogen bulb.

If you want a brighter halogen bulb, get SilverStar or PIAA.

i have silverstars in mine, ive had problems with them in my foglights though......i've only had them in since august and ive replaced the one two times, and the other one i have replaced once.....i haven't had any problems with them in my headlights though, so other than having problems with my fogs they are pretty good bulbs, i paid $40 for my headlights, and $40 for my fogs....

I bought the Silverstars when I first bought my car. The light output was good, but they only lasted about 4 months. I replaced them with the sylvania cool blue's, and still have them a year and a half later.

I honestly do not see a difference between the 2 light output wise, but for $15, you can not beat the cool blue!
