Default sti high beams too bright?

I have a set of EDM sti lights with the stock 9005 high beam bulbs. At night, the high beams are almost TOO bright, and create tons of glare off reflective road signs. I was thinking of replacing the bulbs with Phillips weathervisions from here:

Will these help prevent some of the glare? Thanks.

I don't know about that bulb in particular, but yes, it's the bulb's "color" that's making it appear brighter when it reflects off of road signs. The weathervision is probably a good choice, they will appear more yellow than many bulbs, although I don't know what bulbs you already have so I can't make that comparison accurately, just avoid all bulbs with a blue coating.

This doesn't really help you at all.. but if you think the Sti high beams are too bright, just try dropping in a 5000k HID kit into your low beams. From then on you'll think your high beams are too dim.

well, i've been pretty happy with my low beams after installing the phillips vision plus bulbs. the lows actually more effective than the highs right now because of the glare produced by the high beams off road signs. the high beams work well on country roads with no signs though.
