Re: ilumination help!!!...
Halogen bulbs with a Zenon gas mixture can be found in both the quality bulbs such as: osram, hella, narva, phillips but also in the other popular and overpriced asian bulbs like PIAA for example , but if you can find halogen /zenon +30% or +50% bulbs without the "blue" coating on the glass, all the better. That blue coating cuts out much of the light spectrum that HELPS night vision. The american sylvania silverstars have that blue coating, the german osram/sylvania silverstars Do Not.
believe me, i made the mistake of buying those imitation HID looking bulbs awhile back for my wifes mazda with faded plastic housings, what a mistake, those blue colored bulbs put out less light at night than a bic lighter [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/30.gif[/img]
Eurolite as i see it here in the states, is just plain garbage but if its just that BMW Lexus look your after, buy em. I did a lot of research on better quality lighting after i got a $$$ ticket for missing a yield sign on a pitch black road [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] , so i made big improvements with non-DOT H4 european headlamps.
