Which PIAA headlight bulbs look the closest to HID? (I dont have the cash for an HID kit:( )

Do you just want to color of it or the output? IF you want the closest output of a halogen bulb get philips or sylvania highwattage bulbs but if you want the color get the piaa super plasmas I think thats what they are called I used to own a pair but you wont be able to see shit compared to you stock lights. but they do match the color pretty good. You can get sylvania xtravision bulbs if you want more light.

The closest match to the purple/hid color is the PIAA Super Plasma GT's. I had the super plasmas and they looked so much like HID. Now the GT's are out and the only difference is more light, so it looks more like HID because they're brighter.

You can get the Super Plasma GT's at www.optauto.com

thanks for the input! I guess I want the best of both worlds... HID look with brighter overall output

super plasma's are really nice, sylvania silverstars are also worth the money imo. --joe

do they make silverstars in H4? I thought they didnt. I love them on my friends 9006 bulbs on his ITR and my friends eclipse GS-T also has them. I couldnt find them at autozone.

I've got a set of PIAA Xtreme White bulbs in my SiR (Part # H-208?). Improved light output over stock, and people keep asking me if the SiR comes stock with HIDs. Expensive though.
