PIAA Lights
I've been looking around for piaa lights. I found a few websites that carry them but I don't get the wattage of the bulb. It has something like this: 55w->80w or something like that. Does it matter which ones I get or if I get the wrong ones will it mess up something. Thanks

i got these in my low beams! they are extremely bright! PIAA USA doesn't make an H7 bulb for our low beams but these are PIAA Japan! Kinda expensive but worth it IMO! thumbsup

www.nopionline.com has PIAA bulbs for good prices, that's where I got all of mine...

and the wattage means I think is low wattage, then high wattage...

PIAA make awesome bulbs

Ok when you see that 55w->80w, what it means is that the bulb is only drawing 55w (just like stock), yet the brightness is the equivalent of a 80w bulb.

But, yes, be careful that you are buying bulbs with the same (or very close) wattage as stock, as you don't want to fry the wiring harness. Some people have used bulbs with higher wattage with no problem, but personally, I wouldn't take the chance.

Safest bet is use bulbs that draw the same wattage as the stock bulbs. PIAAs are awesome; I have them myself and wouldn't go back to anything else thumbsup
