Need a good H1 bulb store in Richmond Hill fast !!!

Hey guys I jsut recieved my euro headlights with the CCFL angel eyes. It doesn't have the bulbs included though. I know cheap asses. Anyways I work at Keele Major Mackenzie area and I was wondering if there are any places around here that sell good H1 cool blue bulbs. I live in Scarborough so even along the way home (eastbound) somewhere would be perfect.

Thanks

check your pnp connector for right wire connection.
One of the ground wires might be flipped. You start blowing out the fuses, then pnp connector is bad.

Cdn Tire

Yes. Cdn Tire does sell H1 bulbs. Regular, the Silverstars and now the new Nighthawks by GE. The Nighthawks are supposed to be a little brighter than the Sylvania Silverstars. About $25/each.

Honestly, just buy the regular h1's for temporary use, then buy yourself some OSRAM silverstars (NOT sylvania silverstars) which are amazing lights. You don't want h1's that have a blue coating on them...they look terrible.

Attn Ken Yama

ICP is a wholeseller, and a retailer to the local car shops.
Canadian Tire may also carry them, but last time I checked (about two weeks ago) two of the shops had no idea what H1 bulbs are - typical idiots!

ICP sell Sylvania Silverstar H1 55 bulbs. Excellent bulbs - put out more lumens than any other H1 bulbs.
Osram owns Sylvania nowdays, so what you're getting is actually Osram bulbs in a Sylvania package.
Osram does not sell bulbs in Canada directly any more - Sylvania is their company, so they go through them.

If you see any Osrams here, then whoever is selling them had brought them in themselves from Europe.
