Headlight Bulbs!

Hey everyone, I'm making a trip this weekend coming up & I need some bulbs since mine are out. I need some BLUE bulbs, so that they work well with by corner LED's. I do NOT want Silver Stars, cuz they are more of a white than a blue.

But if anyone has any links off of Ebay or what not. Tha'd be GREAT!

Should I go on a rant about why blue headlight bulbs are the dumbest thing ever made?

My 2 cents. My Silverstars allow me to see a heck of a lot better at night. Those HID systems belong on BMW'S and Mercedes and Porches,for a reason. They fit the car and look good on them. The REAL ones are stolen very frequently,ask anyone with a new Nissan Maxima! They cost to much and get stolen and look bad on the truck. Plus I dont think they provide much more light. In my opinion at least. And for the price. My 'cheap' silverstars are blinding every oncoming car as it is. thats my fun!

Blue bulbs are poser lights, period. Their only purpose is to immitate the blue tinge you see on a high-end car with HID headlights. Blue bulbs don't help you see, they make it worse (they sky is blue for a very good reason!) They don't light up anything better. They don't really look like HID's. And everyone else knows you're using cheapo poser lights. Don't waste your money.
