    For $15, I will ship mine to ya. Oh, and I agree, lighting in general is a rip off, too many styles and varying prices. There should be less fragmentation and more of a universal standard. IMO

    h10 bulbs?

    you can get them for under $10ea from susquehanna. and that's for hella, a premier lighting company.

    for what it's worth i'm running the optilux xy featured in that link and they are great. but the regular hella bulbs are really high quality.
