Which do u guys suggest r the best look like bulbs of xenons? I have seen several cheap immitations before on bombay cars with a dirty bluish tinge to the lights along with the white... but of late i have seen several better ones... some with a purplish tinge which look better than the bluish ones.... So which ones r the best pure white type ones which dont look cheap like the blue ones...the purple tinge looks more xenon like so i dont mind that much.

I use Osram Silverstar on my Vtec - it uses Xenon gas within the bulb. gives upto 50% more light without an increase in wattage - got these from the UK

@Ajmat...can u post a pick of the lights? r they pure white or hv a slight bluish color to it. I have seen many new accord with xenon type lights... i know there is a white one with 17inch mags that has real xenons but there r a few others that i hv seen that i dont think all hv real xenon....there is one gold one which had xenon like lights...white with purplish color to it and not only was it in the headlamps but also in the fog lamps so i think that probably is just a bulb change....This cars number i think is 99 has nice wheels i used to see it at athena last year year the lights look hot! i wanna get those bulbs(thats if they r not an entire xenon kit)

I think anyone thinking of spending 40k on headlights should remember that this is India, and lights are usually the first things to go in an accident. Also, if you live in Bombay, they just might get stolen.
