That's the ones I was thinking of...John Stimson said:Sylvania XV (XtraVision).
But we don't have blue "HID Look" head lights, clear lens on all our signals, no three foot tall triple decker wings on the rear decks, and "Type R" decals on the cars. At least I hope not...:no:jac said:We are ricers too we have the YODA motorrotfl rotfl rotfl
Will the Sylvania XV and Phiillips HV plug directly into the existing sockets with no additions or modifications?John Stimson said:Sylvania XV (XtraVision). They come in the purple packages. Kragen and Pep Boys carry them, and they're about $12 each. They are very good bulbs; I don't think you can find a brighter bulb that's legal.
Philips HV (High Visibility) should be similar.
Sylvania Silverstars are blue-tinted and cost twice as much. I would avoid those, and I would avoid the PIAAs for similar reasons (price and tinting).
Yep, if you get the proper bulbs. They are just high spec replacement bulbs.pianomaniac said:Will the Sylvania XV and Phiillips HV plug directly into the existing sockets with no additions or modifications?
What if a bulb burns out? Can they change the bulbs then? I have to assume that they were warned not to change the bulb type or specification.Adam P said:When all the mechanics from the dealerships made there way to lcu for the tech session lcu told the mechanics not to ass fancy lighting and or change the bulbs because they will create burns on the lense of the housing causing you to purchase a replacement, which is not cheap.
I know the bulbs are replacable. I know the burns are on the housing, not the bulb. Maybe the refraction of light is causing the burns? I will look today and get some pics if I can...John Stimson said:What if a bulb burns out? Can they change the bulbs then?

The Sylvania XVs and Philips HVs are both standard-spec bulbs, with the same power consumption and nominal light output as the OE bulbs.
If the stock-spec bulbs are causing burn marks, that's a good indication that over-Watt bulbs would be problematic.
