w00t new lights in the mail

Got the mail this morning and my 8500k 9007's showed up.

Im not going HID, I'm just putting them in because I wanted blue headlights & yellow fogs. These lights will most likely suck, but they were $12, so if they suck, no big loss.

Weather looks evil right now, so maybe I'll go put them in later.

I've used Silverstars and Cool Blues in the past, and while they're decent, I had a set of 3850k H4s in Euro Clear H4 lenses in my old B2200 and they were pretty whitey/blue and looked really good and visibility was awesome.

These bulbs are more for show. I guess I'll find out tonight if they're any good. I do suspect they will create alot of reflection and glare in the snow and wet, but that's what my fogs are for.

Low beam. Looks like a Silverstar or Cool Blue. And not very bright at all. Corner lights are brighter.

High beam. Probably need to drive with them on to see at night.

I will reserve further bashing until I drive with them tonight. But I am not impressed.

They look white to me. I have a feeling the stock GE's are going back in.

Actually I forgot to take a comparison pic. Stock look way brighter.
