At first, I thought of them as ricey looking, but now think they give cars (except ricers!) a more exotic look. Personally, I now think they're pretty sweet. Just hope I don't get pulled over for having them. 14 bucks at O'Reilly. I'm sure I'll catch plenty of flack for this one, but what do you guys think? Ever been pulled over for having them?

well, you actually make good power, so I guess we cant call you rice, just as long as you dont have a 5 in cowl, and aluminum wing. :D

Just be careful. I had those bulbs in my 2001 F250 and they actually create quite a bit more heat then stock bulbs do which melted my wiring harness for my headlights causing me to have to buy a whole new wiring harness cause the lights quite working eventually. Other then that I loved the light they put out.

okay. do you know why xenon headlights cast the blueish glow that these headlights attempt to simulate?

becouse the reflector and bulb system is designed to remove the "blue" portion of the light spectrum. this blue light is thrown off to the side, while the main portion of the beam is pure white as viewed from the vehicle interior.

this is due to the fact that blue is the most easily reflected portion of the light spectrum. thats why the sky and ocean appear to be blue. removing "blue" light from your headlamps allows them to more easily penetrate rain, snow and fog.

now that your headlights primary spectrum is blue, you have greatly reduced your visibility and created a road hazard for yourself and others.

i wonder why they are not DOT legal....

I had them on my old car thinking I would have better vision. But they are not as bright and for some reason the highbeams were not as bright as the low beams!!?? Threw that shit away.

Well I guess you haven't noticed but alot of the ricers(You said rice so this immediately popped in my head) will put blue laser thingies on their winsheild wiper fluid deal. Or on the hood were they are supposed to go. I know you've seen some ricers runnin around with two blue dots on their hood. Its a really stupid fad among the ricers.

Oh yeah, I know exactly what you're talking about with the windshield wiper light things. About not being DOT legal, considering I'm running an F-cam, no sway bar, off-road exhaust, and about 13 pounds of boost, I'm not too concerned about that.

:D

I use these on my '88 LX - but they just put out white light, not blue. Looks good. DOT legal.

I have an extra set, new unopened $12 / pair...
