brighter headlights

hey guys i recently added some audi inspired l.e.ds to my headlights (will post pics tomarrow) and it looks awsome..... except for the fact that the leds are pure white and my headlights are yellowish, can i go out and bye a different bulb that will be brighter and white in color? or do i have to upgrade to hids? if i can just get a bulb what type and stuff do i need? thanks in advance

I bought 7000k h13 bulbs. They were $60-$70 and are super white. I like them. Plug them in and if they don't match, try something else.

Are the bulbs themselve blue? I found some on ebay for 20- 32 bucks ones the 20s are 60/55w and the 32 is 100/80w which is better

Don't blind people. I'll flick my brights at those fake hids. Just my two cents bro. And that guy is kinda right, autozone is for lower end cars. Not these stallions.

It just seems like ricer central to me. It's kinda why I have the giant AM banner across my windshield lol it where I buy my paint care stuff or general stuff but never anything like interior lights and such. If you feel me

Re: brighter headlights

Lmao harsh, hey they make great drl's so they technically are functional!

I'm not a fan of euro accents light on the mustang myself but if you like them that's cool. No reason to put anyone down because of a difference in taste. I'm 31 years old, some people on this forum are 19 years old and others are well into their 50's and 60's, Stig is in Canada and I'm in So FL, no way we will all have the same taste. Let's be nice......

The guy was just asking about headlights. Silerstars are noticeable brighter and whiter than our stock lights. They sell them at autozone, walmart, AND American Muscle.

Re: brighter headlights

Actually, I don't think they look bad at all, it's a clean install. It would be interesting using them to line one of the lower fascia openings meant for fogs (just a line) to see how that looks. Buy lights at Autozone is fine... using them properly takes some ingenuity though.

AZ actually sells some decent stuff. I wouldn't buy much there, but paint is paint.

You gotta do what's best for your taste. Not everyone will agree, but hey do what you want, it's your car, your money.

Thanks man ur exactly right not everyone has the same taste but to each is own right.. And i know paint is paint and all that but i was just making my point, i dont go to auto zone and get dam exhaust tips and air filters, that would be ricey yea i agree but led strips and stuff to add alil flavor to my car i dont see that being ricey now big *** spoilers and junk yea i dont like that lol, and i think if i can get my headlights to be a nice white theyll look pretty good and ill keep them there, im prdering the 7k bulbs tonight

Re: brighter headlights

I think it looks pretty good. I was looking at the Raxiom halo lights that have the leds along the bottom too, not quite as bright tho, they are tight on the rules out here.

And thats the whole point to customizing your car, everyone has different tastes, you make it your own!

I had some in my old mustang red in color. 4 inch trip lot the entire interior on each side. I like the lights. Just never bought anything else from the appearance or performance wise.
