View Full Version : Xenon Charged Headlights (the good ones non-DOT)
05-22-2002, 01:24 PM
Hey all, I didn't read anything that said I couldn't post non-computer related stuff on here.
I've just become a distirbutor of Farenheit Xenon Charghed Headlights (yeah...the cool SuperWhite (almost blue) ones that look like Audi's and such)
Anyway, I'll give any GotApex reader the low low price of $17.00 (shipped) per set (2 bulbs per set) of bulbs. I will also combine shipping on items.
Anyway, shoot me an e-mail if you want at [email protected]
and visit the web site at:
thanks for your support!
OOooo, can I be in before the lock?

No offense BUT don't car manufacturers like Audi, MB, BMW, etc actually use what's called HID lighting which is VERY expensive to convert, like $895 here (for example):http://www.coolbulbs.com/HIDKits_body.asp
I do believe that's what those guys are using and they're super bright but I'm having a hard time thinking about that kind of money for headlights.

Actually quality HID systems may be purchased for 300-400.
The color output from Super White lights is a brilliant white that is closer to natural sun light than a standard bulb. Most all superwhite bulbs, including these, use more wattage then your standard stock bulbs, thus greater light.
However it is because of that fact that you have to be careful about which brands of bulbs you should buy. Voltage surges have become more common as new vehicles have placed greater demands on factory electrical systems. Also, poorly designed bulbs have been known to fry/melt your wires because of the large amount of energy they are taking in. From my experience, PIAAs and Showoff superwhite bulbs are ones guaranteed to not jack up your wires. Don't know about these ones, are they?
But having superwhite bulbs definently is an improvement, I have PIAAs in my car and I can tell you it is much brighter and better looking then stock.

Actually, I've spent some cash replacing my old sealed beams (mid '80s car, originally with 4 rectangular sealed beams) with all newer type lamps and bulb inserts like newer cars BUT I'm still not overly impressed. With the brights (also changed) it IS truely impressive, lights up the world but the low beams themselves aren't overly powerfull. The 55w low beam Zenons I've got are a tad better than OEM type sealed beam halogens but I'd still like something like HIDs. I've also tryed those blue colored "super plasma" types (supposedly more wattage, like 90w) but that's way worse than the original halogen sealed beams.
The idea of spending even another $300 for headlights seems rediculous to me at the moment BUT.................might you have a link?
Being 40 something, that age when night vision becomes noticably poor, I'd like to be able to see more at night on rural roads.

EvilHorace, you could always were some Army surplus night vision goggles when you drive.

.........ahh, sure ;) (NP but aren't those more than the cost of HIDs?)
