Default found a site with cheap philips vision plus, crystal vision bulbs

link

Since my mom is getting old she has a hard time seeing at night and the light output on her 03 corolla seems pretty dim.

Anyways I found this site and ordered philips vision plus 9006 bulbs for 20+shipping which I thought was pretty cheap and since powerbulbs.com doesnt stock that size for the vision plus bulbs.

I got the bulbs in today so the site is legit.

they got vision extreme bulbs too...but the carry random sizes.

just a heads up for you guys.

I've got an 03 corolla and what I did was mod a 9005(high)
to fit the 9006. Greatly enhanced light
1700 lumens > 1000 lumens!
you just have to shave off 3 slivers of plastic and you're
good to go.
I'm planning to go w/ 9005 HIR's soon
2500 lumens > 1000 lumens lol

the 9005's aren't that bright. Just imagine the output
to be the midpoint between regular and HID
I've gotten used to them already and it's the best bang
for the buck in lighting.
the cut off on the 03 corolla is fantastic.
very sharp cutoff.
You won't blind anyone as long as the lights
are adjusted(only one dial in the back).
I'm thinking your corolla still has the DRL, which is
easily circumvented by snipping a yellow wire
and grounding it.
Don't worry about harnesses or heat as it is only
a 10 watt difference (55w vs. 65w)

Whether you paid $5 or $60, a 9006 is still a 9006(1000 lumens)
A 9005 is $6 anywhere. If you get sick of filing down 9005's,
which you'll do alot since you still have DRL's enabled, you could
just change the 9006 wire harness to 9005's.

cool thanks. i actually got some philips vision plus bulbs and they were alot better than the stock ones. The corolla is actually my moms car. I have a question about the corollas DRLs. Are they the same wattage as the low beams? thanks

and yah the cutoff on the lights are pretty nice for reflectors.

When the DRL's are on, it's only putting out 1/2 of the low beams.


cheers
