    I currently have HID fogs and headlights on my truck, but i'm getting the shrockworks bumper and want to get some PIAA bulbs instead. I get interference on my CB with the HID's and it's so annoying. What is the difference between piaa super white, xtreme white, intense white, and plasma??? I don't want a blue colored light, something close to my HID's :D

    i got a set of super plasma gtx bulbs in my headlights

    there def brighter ( not right in front of you, but u can see farther and wider)

    the bulb is a blue is color with a purple top. when they are off you can see a reflection of blue in the headlight housing and when there on there is a buleish purple tinge to them, its pretty faint tho. id say maybe equivalent of 5000 - 5500k hid's color.

    Get the PIAA Intense White, size H4 bulb for the headlights. It will be closest to your HID. Nearly no blue tint. The bulb itself will be a little blue but it has the silver tip on the top of the bulb that makes the projected light nice and white.

    Read away, they list the draw and the output incl the "K" temp....

    I have a pair of the new "intense whites" (4100K) coming. Should be here today or monday. I'll post how they do when I get them installed..... RON

    Good bulbs, I had my first one burn out after 3.5 years. The xtreme white or the intense white is what you'll want to look at.
