I used luminics higher white 55w for my H1's before and they ran fine for a year :p

Actually, you should be using 55w. I don't know why you'd go with the 35w bulbs for the 6.

yeah sorry my bad... it's 55W we want.. not 100W that we don't want.

But there's the bulbs that are 55W that say outputs like 100W which is fine too.

Yeah, they claim to output 110w from a 55w bulb, which is physically impossible since the range of output is reduced when you increase the kelvin rating.

PIAA's are too expensive, from what I've seen.

Luminic bulbs are just as good for half the price.

luminics are poor quality, poor output. i went from luminics to PIAA and there was an obvious difference. PIAAs are about $15-20 overpriced, i agree, but they last and are made in japan, so usually that stuff doesn't come cheap.

Just don't buy them at Overdrive or Lordco.

Order them online.

Ebay even.
