    Good to know. Luckily Hikaris come with 2 year warranty (hopefully I'll never have to use it) although I am now very interested in trying the GE bulbs. I might just order a set, if I can find them of course :) Thank You!

    I'd suggest trying out the Hellas, I think you will like the fuller beam pattern better. Plus, they are currently a bit more available.

    Yep! @Pro-Taco note to use an H9 you will need to trim an internal tab on the bulb with a small knife or run the small adapter others are using.

    Installed the GE H11 130+ . Very happy with the results of it. Thank you @crashnburn80 for your amazing overview.

    So does Amazon. But again, can’t tell which bulb it is. If they offer 2 bulbs that appear the same but at different prices, it will be the more expensive one.

    I can attest these are marked hella and are mfg in korea. I just got mine today.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000H0RCA4/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03__o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Found these after purchasing mine for cheaper as a twin pack but can't guarantee mfg location.
