Re: Upgrade Bulbs

I have the philips bulbs and set to position 0 (which they should be under normal driving conditions) and I've not once had someone flash me.

Plus you can clearly see the very sharp beam cutoff straight across the horizontal span of the road, so you can pretty much anticipate whether you may be blinding someone.

Legality aside, its 20 for the +90's versus a whole load more for the HID's

I am looking to improve on a budget.
