Which Xenon Bulb to get?


I am in the process of upgrading my fog lights with some Xexon Type Bulbs.

I currently have 6000K HID Lights and 6000K Angel Eyes.

I'm deciding between these two lights - but not sure which one is better.


US $38.95 Buy It Now >
Shipping costs: US $8.00

= $46.95 shipped.

Option 2: Xeno-Match 9006 (Pair) Rated at 4200K from www.visionbulbs.com

$34.95 - $5.24 discount = $29.71 w/Free Shipping.

Which one would you buy? I know everyone is going to say - neither and get HID Fog Lights -

personally i don't like the blue look of those bulbs... If it was me I'd stick with a pair of sylvania sylverstars of some other type of bulb...
From the ones you mentioned above, i would pick the first kit (Authentic Mtec)

make sure that you get the right wattage...

and those blue tinted bulbs put out less light than you think. I'd stick with silver stars.
..sig coming soon..
