What's the best bulbs????

I believe that my wife has bought me a set of projector headlights like in this link http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/98-99...em200181743844 for Christmas. I was wondering what is the best and brightest bulbs that I can put in these? I've seen the sylvania silverstar ultras and I've also seen some xenon blue 8500K bulbs on ebay, but I am not sure about either of them. Any suggestions would be great. Also does anyone know what type of bulb the projector light in the headlight set up takes? Thanks for any suggestions and help.

Hid(high intensity discharge) lights are a completely new lighting system. Superbright....i love mine. Hid kits are on ebay......priced anywhere from $60-200+. Mine was $135 shipped. German ballast too.

But...if that's out ofthe question...then just get the Silverstar Ultras...Those 8500k ebay lights suck....i had those like 3 years ago. They look cool in the housings....but don't light the road up at all. they suck. Suggestion: I got my silverstar ultras for my subaru for $25 shipped off ebay. hint hint, nudge nudge.

Ok thanks for explaing that for me. I've heard of the Hid lights before, but I was unclear of exactly what they were. I will definately look into them for the future. As for now I will probably go with the silverstar ultras.

Can anyone help me out on what bulb type is in the projector part of the headlight?

i may be mistaken but i belive that its a H3 bulb. and in the packs the bulbs comes with a little piece of wire hanging off on it. same as the Hella off road lights.

So if one were to buy an HID kit, would it be wise to get a set of those projector headlights in the ebay auction to help reduce the glare when putting in HIDs to non projecter housings?

yea. they're designed only to be used with projector housing. so you get the silverstar 9007's or 9004, which ever the outtermost headlight is, and then an HID kit for the projector, which was an H3 bulb correct?
