See I don't think you would have a problem though since I assume you kept the stock bulbs (which aren't bright) and the yellow overlays would actually cut down on light emission (thus making them less bright). Plus there are cars that come with yellow fogs from the factory, that isn't a safety hazard.I have a yellow overlay on my fog light lens, regardless, I don't turn them on while on the road.
Sorry but I can't get behind your question regarding a mod that is most likely illegal where you live but also dangerous to other drivers and most importantly pointless. Instead of spending your time looking up ways to cause accidents, maybe you should ask about what HID kits people are running in their headlights, which will give you ALL the light you will NEED no matter where you're driving.Gee Thanks ILLJIM69 for all your great input. Why don't you use all that energy into helping people instead of looking for an argument. For starters you have no idea what roads i am driving, being them main roads or back roads. And secondly if you don't like what people are doing to their cars. Then don't post. Your negativity isn't needed, and I'm pretty sure i speak for everyone when i say its also unwanted.
Actually the higher up you go on the light temperature scale, the less usable the light is to the human eye. Otherwise car makers wouldn't be using 4300k HIDs, they would use 10,000k or higher.Well i have hid's in my headlights im just looking for more light. And its not the fact that i care if people agree with me cause every one has there own opinions. Opinions are like [email protected], everyone has one. Its the fact that you never questioned as to why i was looking to do it you, automatically assumed and gave a smart ass remark. Im not looking to blind people or "rice" out my vehicle, That was never my intention. Im looking for more illumination on the road and hid's are at the top of that list.
So how about i ask this. Does anyone know of a brighter bulb that i can replace my stock oem that is a whiter more useable light?
No, they're HID bulbs and they're wired independent of the low beam lights. Even though I rarely turn them on (and never when there is on coming traffic), sometimes I like having stuff done just to say that I've had it done.See I don't think you would have a problem though since I assume you kept the stock bulbs (which aren't bright) and the yellow overlays would actually cut down on light emission (thus making them less bright).

Saw these super bright LED's the other day - they are 6000k so getting into the upper end of white.So how about i ask this. Does anyone know of a brighter bulb that i can replace my stock oem that is a whiter more useable light?

As for your problem with low light, there are tons of options out there, although most are for OFF ROAD USE ONLY in just about all 50 states. Who knows, maybe you live in Canada and blinding people is illegal. Your statements don't dismiss mine in that you only seem to care about you getting more light and not about how that light will affect others.
So I guess I just have to ask; where in the world do you live and at what speeds are you traveling on a daily basis that headlights aren't enough?
Yes don't do LED. They're just bright, but don't throw light. Unless you rip apart an OEM LED headlight and use those. But that's super expensive.I've tried LED bulbs in the fog light housings, they don't throw enough light on to the road - probably because of the design of the reflector in the housing.
Yep. Lived out in the country where there were no street lamps, small roads, lots of wildlife, not even light pollution to help (not that it does). I won't even get into all the hours I have behind the wheel in blackout drive and no NODs.Have you never driven at night where there's cloud cover and no street lamps? It's QUITE dark. Any extra light IS quite helpful. Speed isn't much of a factor in the appreciativeness of more light. It allows you to see just that much better.
I am sure every other person who puts ridiculous lights on their cars says the same thing, until they tire of reaching for the switch; assuming they even care. By the time another car is in sight it is too late anyway, you have already annoyed them.I'm sure also wayne would turn them off (just like with high beams) if there was oncoming traffic or traffic in front (since highs with traffic is illegal, and EVERYONE knows that...). If he's driving where traffic is minimal, I'm confused as to why you care so much as to how it will affect others, when he's saying that when he drives at night, there's basically no one else around.
