Headlight bulb advice please...
Hi guys, I'm looking to get a set of light bulbs, including headlight, turn signal and fog lights for a 95 325i for my girlfriend's dad. Right now he has a set of Toucan Eurolights that I bought him last, last Christmas and he doesn't really like them anymore because they're too blue.

He's looking for something more pure white. I'm not really into lighting so I have no idea what's good out there on the market right now. Last time I heard PIAA Plasmas were supposed to have a close resemblance to HIDs, but they were also quite pricey at the time. Can anyone recommend any other brand that is easily attainable, like from Pacific Mall or somewhere like that?

hey freezin,,,
i have the blue type of bulbs in my bimmer,,i think there a crappy,, not very much light. but as for something that is a little more of pure white light?? there are some brands out there that are pretty bad,, go to Pacific Mall at Kennedy and Steeles,,they have all types of bulbs in the little ricer shops. i got a pair for my old civic, made in germany and were about $50. they were nice and bright,and lasted a long time....good luck i hope this helps

actually im not too sure,, but i think the name was german,,it was in a clear casing like the euro-lights, but had a white rapper with (i think ) gold lettering ,,,sorry i could be much more help,, anyways its worth the trip to the mall, just to check out what the latest craze is in good ol' Japan

i think it was something like

NARVA -spectrumwhite they were something like 140/130w,,there made in germany,,
im pretty sure thats what they were,,,not bad for the price,,but id still spend the x-tra and get the piaa's they are by far the best...

from experience i know that all these other cheaper aftermarket ones arent bright enough for me,, i find it kinda dark without my fog lights on,, its ok in the city but kinda hard 2 C in the vast open, also known as the rural country roads...
actually talk to MTRD his lights are really nice looking ,, havent seen in person but those babys are really photogenic,,,
