Check out PIAA's bulbs they offer. What all have you looked at?

Oh, did you retrofit the projectors or buy some already with projectors?

One option are our Predator Xenix hyperwhite bulbs. The projector fogs should be an H3 fit as well.

Hoen is a cheap generic bulb, same bulbs as everyone else sells just in different packaging.

You want a PIAA H3 bulb for those projectors. Best way to go if your not going HID.

The Sylvannia Silver Star extreme or something are pretty bright, a lot brighter than the ones out there with blue tinted glass. They're not HID white in color, but much whiter than regular halogens.
