If you use a 35W bulb with a 55W, the bulb would not last as long as it should.

I have the HID kits for the Axio fogs, but not the lamps.

It's on an older model hilux, relays were installed with the bulbs. They are also on a tiida, but relays weren't installed on that, i believe it had relays already.
It's not by the computer store, it's by bobby, the auto electrician, opposite the mosque

Sorry to bring back an older thread but I was very curious, are these LED bulbs illegal? I have them as the Park Light and they appear somewhat bluish even though I bought clear (white). I dont want anymore tickets. See image below:

dreadman , If its Performance you want 4300k is the brightest and the best for rain, Thats what comes in vehicles with OEM HID. there is 3000k but its Yellow, more yellow than halogen, its good for fog lights. 4300k is good for rain, its white with a little yellow, white light is not good for rain.

The best way to have HID's is to buy Original HID headlights for your car.

Good Day, I have a Y11 Wingroad but the headlight uses IH01 bulb sizes as printed on the factory bulbs and headlight itself. It looks similar to H4 but H4 cant fit into it. Is there any other bulb size that is the same as this IH01 that I can buy? Because I really want to change to HID's.

Thanks.
