Well my drivers side fog light blew out on me about a week ago, and I have been contemplating on what bulbs to get next as I hate replacing the super white bulbs all the time. Well I came across these on ebay, saw they have a 5 year warranty on them, for any reason, if they blow, you get a new set, etc. etc.. But I've never seen or heard of anyone that has the Xenons with a purple tint to them. Just curious if any of you have ever seen these in person?

The manufacturer told me the bulbs produce a SNOW WHITE beam, He says there is no Purple tint to them and they are garunteed for life....

Havent seen those, but with a warranty you could sell them off if you didnt like color.

If I can remember correctly, those will give off more of a whitish yellow beam than the regular blue looking xenons that emit a very whiteish blue beam...I think I tried those and didn't like them, but they may look different on your car, let us know how they look!

hey guys... well, if you can't guess while I'm posting back now, you will soon find out... The bulbs I purchased that claimed from Pro Car Parts that they have a lifetime warranty, is a FAKE.. They will not warrant the bulbs in any sort for any reason. 4 days ago I installed the bulbs on my car, and was pulling out of my driveway today, and I noticed against my moms car that my passenger foglight is burnt out already... So I called pro car parts, talked to the guy, and he told me that the warranty is covered from manufacturers defects only, which does not cover the bulb blowing out... TALK ABOUT A SCAMM!!! I'll never buy from pro car parts again..

ps - the bulbs looked like crap anyway.... I agree with you scarface..

Sorry to hear about your PCP experience. At the same time, I hope it will serve as a warning to others. I've warned people about PCP many times, but they don't listen.

Now you must share your experiences with others and join me in the fight against PCP!

Hey, if you want something a little nicer, go with some Sylvania Silverstars(I think they are around 20 each) or the PIAA Xtreme White Plus(I have those in my high/low beam, around 75 ea. pr..) I have the Silverstars on my 2000 4Runner in fogs and headlights, I love them! Both are costly, but really good names and quality...If you want something a little cheaper, I have had best luck selling the XENON blue bulbs by Toucan...Those are good bulbs! I sell them retail around 29.95 a pair....

MAKE SURE WHEN YOU INSTALL BULBS THAT YOU DO NOT TOUCH THE BULB WITH YOUR FINGER OR HAND!, We have oils and grime and dirt on our hands that can damage the bulbs causing them to blow sooner... Just a word of advice!
