Where to find H7 HID bulbs that don't suck
 
Could anyone point me in the direction of some that aren't total $hit? I am starting to get really tired of this awful quality China stuff. Anyone help me out?

I just ordered a set from Umnitza. So far everything I have gotten from them worked just fine. And they have always responded to my questions - even the stupid ones and helped me out a lot.

Were they high quality, or just the same stuff that ebay ships out(which happens to be the same crap most of the sponsors carry too).

Ordered DDM's H7 35W kit, have had it going on a year and never had a single issue. Customer service is awesome, talk to Casey, he da man!

Are the bulbs good quality, that is my main concern.

umnitza or bavtoys.com. If all else fails you might even consider investing in an OEM bixenon unit

Noyka bulbs are not crap. I love them. I can understand if you are looking for HID, then you have to buy a kit, but seriouslt, a $25 set of bulbs from Nokya is not a bad deal. Mine have lasted forever...

Also, look into PIAA... Pricy, but worth it.

they all suck. it's just rebased d2s bulbs. just get the cheapest one man. you can only get quality bulbs in d series bulb sizes

Sylvania SilverStar bulbs are pretty good, they are at most auto parts stores. I bought some cheap EuroDezign bulbs on eBay and they all burnt out quickly. They had a lifetime warranty but you have to pay for shipping plus a $7 service charge, so it's not even worth returning them.

If your asking about halogens..

Go for wellknown brands.
Phillips, Osram (called Silvania in the US i think) or GE.

Please read the thread title lol, HIDs. Eventually I may upgrade to P46 and D2S, but I was looking for a high quality H7 HID bulb, essentially not cheap taiwan stuff

I have EUROLITE Plasma bulbs in mine. Not expensive at all, they have the HID look to them, the bulbs themselves are kinda purple. They glow sort of hyper white at night. They are very bright and I've had them for about a year now. Only thing is I can't get H11's for my fogs to match. PM me if you want me to take a pic tonight of them on.
