    So I got my bulbs for a little more than $5 a piece on Amazon. I went with a xacto knife and it worked like a charm. I can definitely notice the increased light output. I have just one question for you guys, did you find that the bulbs did not completely finish seating when you installed them? I mean, it's probably less than a pube hair turn left, but you can tell the difference of the H11 when turning to lock vs the H9. I don't think I'll have any problems with the bulb turning itself out, just wondering.

    I didn't have any issues with my bulbs not seating properly.

    Is anyone running the Sylvanias that are found at most Pepboys/Autozones/Chain Auto stores? If so, which ones did you go with? I had the hyperwhite or whatever it was that was the whitest in my old car.

    Whats a good brand online that wasn't too expensive and worked well?
    Crazy is running towards what people are running from.

    I am using the Sylvania bulbs from Pepboys. I didn't buy anything special. Just using the basic bulbs. My last set lasted me around 16 months.
