Question Searching for non HID lights that are bright. - January 6, 2010, 10:34 AM

Not going the HID route for bright lights:
Custom install of HID lights in simple 5.75" headlight

Anyone have any suggestions for good old h4 (9003) halogen bulbs? Looking to get a color temp as close to 5000.

According to the interweb these are good:

Sylvania Silverstar Ultra. Only sold in pairs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kVvsAwTbRo

OSRAM Night Breaker

It seems like you sacrifice brightness for bulb life.

What do ya got?

PIAA they make a real good bulb they use to have a lifetime warranty also. They are price but some of their sizes come as individual bulbs also. I know they use to have H4s as singles cause I sold a bunch to people with bikes

Unfortunately, brighter halogen means more draw and even more heat. Question then would be, can your harness handle the extra draw and not melt all the way to the bulb?

Hi wattage bulbs are available super cheap but to those that buy in quantity. Most retailers pay around $2-$4 per bulb if you know anyone that can give their cost.
