    Was thinking of what to do when my 6 year old PIAAs finally pop. Back in the day I paid about $65 for them. But now they're closer $100. Very high quality product. But I'm not sure I want to put that much into them.

    The $14 Lamin-x is a cheap option. I even looked at some Yellow LEDs, similar to yours....but came across a thread stating the LEDs are terrible in halogen reflectors...poor light throw and potentially blinding to on coming traffic.

    Thoughts?

    Nokya Hyper yellow? I ran these in my Tacoma. After 11 years, I was only on a second pair. Think they're about $25. They do look more yellow than this in person.

    Yeah...I'm familiar with them. The complaint on those was that the yellow coating eventually faded making them less yellow. At least that's the way they used to be

    I didn't have that issue with the 2 sets of H10s being only 45w, however, the 9005s at 65w started to fade on the side of the bulb facing up.

    The PIAAs don't fade. But super pricey

    You can aim it downward, I haven't had anyone flashed me with the led fogs on.

    I still have the Piaas yellow fogs going on 7 years on the Tacoma and no issues either. I agree Bill they are more pricier nowadays.

    4Runner climbed out of this stuff where even the Tacoma might of struggled.
