I was hesitent too about the amount of work that was going to be required to install HID's. Man was I wrong. DDM kit is dumbie proof. Plus life time warrenty. I ran PIAA's. And for the cost of those bulbs and the life I was getting out of them. I needed to try something different. I am very happy with my decission to switch over to HID's. But if you still want to stay with halogens. PIAA's 4000K Xtra-Whites were not too bad.

Lets just say not quite stock.

do NOT use the nokya bulbs if your looking for something bright. my friend and i have tried them, they are very blue but are dim as hell, i had practically no vision using them in my 99, i took them out and returned them. as far as a regular halogen goes the silverstars are decent but for the same money u can get a way better setup from ddm tuning
