    Thoughts? Opinions? Personal experience? I've heard good and bad things about PIAA in the past, and this is the first time I've stumbled upon these. Just wondering if they are even worth consideration...

    I had some of those in my 2000 Corvette years ago. Brilliant blue-white light, but they didn't last very long. YMMV.

    I had them in some previous cars (2001 Maxima and 2006 Ridgeline). I really liked the performance and the color but they didn't last long for me either.

    Friends and I have ran those in previous vehicles and it's true... They're nice, but don't last as long. Considering the price of the PIAA there are other alternatives that IMO give a better bang for your buck...

    I've been using Phillips H4 Extreme bulbs with great success in my truck prior to moving up to ACA HID projector housings... And those same pair of bulbs are now in my wife's car and still going strong... I would choose Phillips over the PIAA based on cost/life...
