Yah, those are very bad bulbs. Just start saving up to get an HID kit. That's the only thing that's worth it, if you wanna improve your lighting.

I would not get them just because the temperature rating is wrong. The hotest HIDs you can get right now are 6000K, I think, and those are made by a reputable company, Philips.

Those are not even true HID bulbs the 7500K from PIAA, they are just Halogen bulbs with a tinted envelope, which will further hinder your vision.

Think physics...there is no way 55w=100w unless it is indeed 100w. If PIAA has managed to increase power output with 1/2 the power input then this is revolutionary for the planets energy needs.

Anything over 5,800k will reduce vision in HID systems. The Philips Ultinon is indeed 5,800k but marketed as '6,000k cool power xenon.'
