Looking to replace my stock headlight. Anyone out there can give recommendation? I am totally confused with the Xenon, Krypton, HID, Plasma, etc. Anyone out there purchased one? Thanks in advance.

Let me be the first to give you my knowledge of bulbs, don't take my word for it but here it is:
Xenon - most common "HID effect" the gas gives of a blueish tint but shine brighter. the bulbs are blue because that absorbs most of the blue light.
Krypton: superman's homeplanet....sorry had to ... they are supposed to shine cooler that than Xenon, and are clearer.
HID: High Intensity Discharge - these are the systems in luxury cars. the bulbs dont have a filament so they charge the gas in the bulb, these are the whitest lightes you can get, the brightest ones too. however you have to install a system if you dont have HID's usually costs around $600+
Plasma.....Plasma....I think these are the ones with the coated covers..not to sure

I ave a set of Nokya Arctic Whites...the are a nice bluiesh white tint, but not really that much brighter. Actually I reangled my fogs and got more use out of them

The bulbs are H4 for heads and H3 for fogs, just in case.

PM me if you need anymore help.
