i just installed my eurolights and wanna change the stock light bulbs. here in peru there's no control on lights so i can put any wattage. should i buy regular wattage phillips blue vision h4 and h3 bulbs? is it worth it to install relays and new wiring to put in high wattage bulbs? what do you recommend?
i was thinking:
Headlights: phillips blue vision h4 and h3 (standard wattage)
foglights: phillips all weather h3 (standard wattage)
opinions please

Re: which light bulbs for euros should i buy? (SLC4EVER)

ok, but do you think that upgrading everything is worth it or should i just keep standard wattage.... would i have to change the cabling and harnessthat's inside the light too?

relays will make a big difference on the stock bulbs, even more of a difference with higher wattage bulbs. iirc there is a couple of volts drop with the stock wiring that can be gained with relays to the battery.

No the blue vision are the same brightness as regular bulbs, they just give the bulb a slight blueish tint that is "supposed" to be the same color as blue Zenon bulbs. I tried a pair before I upgraded to full Eurolights and they are still a far cry from the same color as Zenon, although they do look better than stock lights next to Zenon headlight bulbs, but they dont justify the extra cost . I had to order from the UK and they cost almost $20 for a pair.

I put in PIAA ExtremeWhite in my Eurolight setup and am pleased with it. They give you the equalivant of around 120 watts each without using any more juice than stock. A little pricy, but worth it. Basically the same as Zenon, except white rather than blue. I tried some of the cheaper Zenons and although they were nice and bright I found they got too hot and where prone to meltdown.

Re: which light bulbs for euros should i buy? (risestar)

I tried the vision plus in my euros and they were much brighter and whiter than standard H4, but no where near as bright as the overwattage 80/100. Now the bulbs are in my 4runner and are doing well. All bulbs will be brighter with relay's if your wires have a valtage drop. Measure the voltage at the battery and at the bulb, both low and hight beam. If the voltage is the same you don't need relay's. I had about 1 volt drop on the lows and 1.5 volt on the highs, so I added (3) 40 amp relay and now I have no voltage drop and verry bright lights. Never buy blue anything bulbs unless you want less light, they are like putting sunglasses over the bulb.

Re: which light bulbs for euros should i buy? (awsumG60)

after all your great opinions and some reading here's what i'm thinking right now:
-upgrade wiring and add relays
-100/90W H4 bulbs (headlights)
-100W H3 bulbs (headlights)
-100W H3 bulbs (foglights)
-all bulbs regular halogen, nothing blue
whatya think?
