06-07 Headlight Bulbs

There has been much talk about these new Sylvania Silver Star Ultras. To my surprise the 06 to 07 model low beam head lights, H11, are tough to come by for upgrade bulbs, from the Sylvania Silver Stars, GE Nighthawks and so on. My question pretty much wants to know what type of low beam upgrades have you other owners have used besides the pricey HID conversions.

I have the Polarg Shining Wizards, since my fave RAZO bulbs don't come in that size. The Shining Wizards are very white with a slight hint of blue, very similar to the RAZOs. Got em on Ebay for like $40 or so.

I got some Piaa Xtreme (something like that) bulbs off ebay for about 50 bones. Very clean light that has pretty much doubled the output of the factory bulbs.

I've tried the PIAA Xtremes. Still a bit yellow for my taste.

forget PIAA...a total ripoff.

check out Hoen Xenonmatch. Best bulbs out there but you must order from the website

www.hoen-usa.com *link now edited*

they are the number 1 choice in replacement bulbs for all euro brands (audi, bmw, mercedes etc.)

I currently run them in my GTO and ran them in both of my BMW's and worked flawlessly.
