My friend has an 03 Accord and saw a guy on his Honda forums that put the Hyper Yellows in his brights. I was just curious if this is legal to drive with and if you would recommend doing it. Thanks.

I have them too...there are some vehicles that come with yellow highs stock (older acuras/toyotas/etc) so its legal...check your local laws just to make sure you will be ok though

I have them too. Don't kid yourself with performance with them though, these are purely for aesthetics.

You're never going to use your highs when it's foggy out... which is when yellow lighting is advantageous. When you use your highs is on a clear night, and are seeking the most light possible. In that case you want the purest white possible.

So in short... don't buy these if you're under the impression it'll improve your highbeams, the bulbs that come stock provide more useable light.

Aesthetically though they look fantastic. Even when off I love how they reflect.

try them in a downpour with fog. i assure you, they're better than any "pure white" bulb. google yellow wavelengths. they also clearly illuminate roadsigns.

I have hid's, and no matter what color bulb (regular, yellow, blue) I put in my highbeams, I can't even tell they are on. The hid's light up the road so well I don't even use them. So they are purely for looks.

I have Luminics highs, which are basicly the same thing as the Nokya Hyper's, and they are the best highs I've ever had. Oh, and Brad, are you going to be able to make it to the cruise tomorrow?

I'm actually looking into them more for the look also, I have only used my high beams maybe once to twice since I bought the car a year ago. I had HID in the lows and they light up nicely. Anyone have pics of their mazdas with them in? I like the yellow reflection in the headlight and just wanted to see how it looks on what I have rather than an Accord.

Absolutely. Looks freakin sweet as hell :irock: I'll try to get a shot of it before I head down to Indy for the Mazda cruise.

Here's a pic of the reflection (NOT my car)

That's pretty much what I was looking for. That looks sick. Going to be ordering these for sure as well as a shark fin antenna. Just won $142 playing Keno today. :lol:

You would not (should not) be using high beams in downpour fog. I'm well aware that the yellow wavelengths are far better than white in foggy conditions... my point was that no one will use highs in any type of foggy conditions. During any sort of fog, the highbeams reflect to a point that you are lessening your visibility with them on.
