I just replaced my fog bulbs with PIAA and very pleased with the color match to the headlights, but now the OEM AE's stand out as being even more yellow. Any reason I can't replace them with PIAA bulbs?
I replaced the H8 (35 watt) AE bulbs with the Silverstar H7 low beam (55 watts) bulbs. Needed a quick trim with a dremel on one flange (10 seconds or less for 2 bulbs) but now I have BRIGHT nearly white halos. Did this mod about a year ago with no ill effects.
No matter how fast I go, there's always someone slower in front of me.
