well I've been reading and trying to find answers to my questions without much luck. ive had hids for the past two years now and there breaking down. it now to the point that almost every 3 weeks the lights will take forever to light, with several atempts to light. so instead of buying another set of hide and dealing with the same problem in another two yrs i was thinking about doing the 9005 low beam upgrade. please give your advice on bulbs to try, and the pros and cons, and whatever you may feel that i need to know about doing this up grade. thanx

Easiest mod ever. I just got the standard Phillips H9 and they're noticeably brighter, but not whiter, if you know what I mean. I had H11 PIAA super whites before and when first installed, they appeared to be whiter, but not worth the extra money(about 3x more).

But has anyone noticed it being to hot of a temp cause of the difference in watts? Should I have to worry about melting the headlights or anything like that ?

Im running SilverStars.

Aftermarket HIDs are illegal, and LEOs in my area do pull people over for them. I also dont want the hassle of them going out all the time like I read about on here.
