NOTE: pay attention at the light output under each bulb's picture, and read the whole article - it should answer a lot of questions and demistify certain claims (PIAA, for one)<p>proxy.dotcenter.net

Huge difference! Highly recommend

Those VisionPlus make a huge difference compared to OEM H7 (Philips or Osram/Sylvania).<br> <br> I got mine from Autolamps Online, a UK based company, for $40/set. They have no problem shipping overseas at no additional cost.<br> <p>proxy.dotcenter.net

Check your manual...

... if it says H7, then order H7 etc... <br> <br> If you want 'Blue Xenon look', upgrade to real HID ($500-$1000). Anything short of it will make your car look 'HID wannaby', i.e. rice-rocketish. It's very easy to tell one from the other. Bad taste, if you ask me. Also - poor illumination, as all blue-coated (or any other tint, for that matter) halogen bulbs throw LESS light on the road than CLEAR bulbs (which Philips VisionPlus are).<p>proxy.dotcenter.net

are you blinding oncoming traffic?

are these lamps so bright that they blind oncoming traffic? did you need to readjust the angle of the lights at all? or are they fine for oncoming traffic?<br> <br> btw, my coupe came w/ michelin pilot sports 225/45zr rated<p>cn401590-a.norr1.pa.home.com

i don't know if they're standard...

mine had the michelins. the article below says they come w/ michelins but that's the canadian evolution package (which i believe is the same as the C7).<br> <br> http://www.canadiandriver.com/testdrives/02c230sc.htm<br> <br> my only hesistation is that i saw the photos of tommy's car and although he got the c7 package, his tires are clearly continental contisports (also zr rated, not the standard all-season conti's).<p>207-103-102-115.lata228-vz-1.voicenet.com

I've got the VP H7s and have been flashed many times

Oncoming traffic obviously can tell the difference between the VPs and stock.<p>cx262852-b.alpn1.sdca.home.com
