I'm admittedly bias, but the only bulbs really worth using IMO are PIAA's, which cost 100$ a pair. At that price, HID's aren't much more expensive, and last much longer. I'd replace em with some CT cheapies, and down the road upgrade to xenons'.

(if you have euro ellipsoid headlights, amd have some spare lowbeam bulbs, e36 fogs are H1 (99% of the time, some are h7) you can re-use the bulbs.

Nokya bulbs aren't good in my experience. One exploded/melted in 2 months (stock E30 fogs, stock wattage bulb). Chris had them too, they lasted longer than mine but still only a few months.

lol, justin is whipped, he spends all his time with his girl.
He's still on that powerlifting forum, not sure which one it was.

justin was mostly online all night cause he wouldn't sleep, i think he started training more in the mornings, so he goes to sleep early, hence has less time for the interweb. If you need to get in touch with him i think he still answers his email account.

+1 for PIAAs. Best H1 bulbs i've ever bought, aside from HIDs.

PIAAs are the best halogen bulbs, but with them being $100 a set, and the price of HIDs dropping fast.... the choice is easy. HIDs are the only things I'll run now...
