Just replace the thing with a PIAA Super Plasma bulb. The other colors will not be white, but more blue. The Super Plasma is very white, which won't stick out like a sore thumb vs. your HIDs. I've got the same setup with my HIDS...
hey huy, which bulbs are you using for the fogs? i haven't matched up all my headlights yet. currently, i have HIDs and stock fogs and parking lights that look yellow. which bulbs do you suggest to match them up pretty close?Huy said:Just replace the thing with a PIAA Super Plasma bulb.

althought i love the look of the 97+ headlights, they're just so expensive. i'd rather get the euro-glass headlights instead because they're cheaper.money042 said:upgrade to 97-98 headlamp unit. there is no "eggshell" light. might as well get the 97-98 turnsignals/parking lights too.
good luck, have fun!
are you asking to remove the headlamp from the car or remove the clear plastic cover from the headlamp assembly?StaticX313 said:hey also how do you get the light cover off? Is it something as easy as removing some clips or what? heh im sure its easy , but im at school right now and havent looked at them so im not sure. Thanks!
dusty sells them for $448 but i think he is out of stock right now.money042 said:anyone know where the euro headlights are sold? and how much are they typically going for?
hey man, if i were you, i'd just keep the 97 headlights...they look much cleaner imo. BUT if you must, tell me so that i can buy those 97's off of yamoney042 said:anyone know where the euro headlights are sold? and how much are they typically going for?
thanks for the info, huy. thats good info to consider when contemplating on purchasing the glass headlights.Huy said:I did the writeup for the headlight oven trick....
As for Euro headlights, you may want to re-consider them. A lot of you are concerned about the looks mainly, which is cool. However, if you have HIDs, you will surely notice that the beam pattern is aimed differently and is more focused on the rightside of the road. Also, no matter how much you adjust the aim to go higher, it won't blanket the road with as much light as the US DOT pattern.
I surely agree: they will look nicer since they are less susceptible to fogging, but the beam pattern isn't what you'd expect. I know because I am a lighting freak and have been on the Philips Lighting forum for over 3 years, in that time I've met other MKIV owners who have complained about the beam pattern being too low no matter how much you adjust it.
