    Just replaced my melted and yellow head lights with some new depos from Amazon and now I want some better bulbs. Any recommendations? I'm leaning towards Phillips xtreme power

    I've used the SilverStars before and they work great. I say they are the best replacement without doing a HID retrofit.

    Definitely like the phillips myself. Best halogen bulbs I've ever had. It's what I had before my retro. Still have them in my fogs. I did get bright lighted a lot tho. So I would suggest aiming them correctly if you go that route

    Osram off road bulbs are great. They are just like the factory bulbs except you can get them up to 85 Watts (without melting your factory reflectors). Requires beefing up your factory wiring. Pretty easy to do with some relays and thicker gauge wire. They have normal light rather than that exhausting blue light of HIDs and "premium" blue tinted off the shelf bulbs.

    Also google how to adjust the aim of your headlights, that can make a huge difference even with factory bulbs.

    I actually just went out for milkshakes (an excuse to test my lights) and the philips bulbs that came with the depos are bright has hell I might just leave them. Not sure what type of philips they are will check tomorrow

    I wasn't talking about anything oem. I was talking about hid bulbs that people buy and throw in factory housings, or the blue tinted bulbs that are at most automotive shops for around $60-$90 that put out a blueish light. Not really looking to get into a debate over it though, people seem to be attracted to blue lights like flies... To each his own.
