Our take on the Hella Performance Headlamps

by Matt Holliday

Improve the safety and appearance of your vehicle by adding Hella's High Performance Xenon Blue bulbs. Hella bulbs give you a crisper, brighter beam than your existing headlight bulbs, producing a brighter, whiter light that improves visibility and reduces eye fatigue when you're driving.

Hella manufactures Xenon Blue bulbs to strict specifications, ensuring maximum output and durability. Precise filament alignment gives you the most possible light, and the blue glass creates a clear, white beam.

Note: These bulbs were designed and intended as factory replacements and are DOT approved for street use.

Great bulbs - bright white!

Written By Dirk, New Jersey on Friday, July 09, 2010
These are much more white than the OE bulbs in my wife's 2007 Si. I installed
them two winters ago and they are still working perfectly. To oncoming traffic
they appear very white, similar to OE HID.

very disappointing

Written By damon, orange county, CA on Thursday, October 01, 2009
i read so many good things about these bulbs and when i installed them and turned them on they were not any brighter than my stock bulbs. in fact one bulb was dimmer than the other and i was wondering if one was already out but it was just very dim. My 2005 dodge ram 1500 needs to be able to light up the road with some decent bulbs and these were just not them. VERY disappointed, do not buy them

I just installed these lights today in my 1990 K3500 Chevy truck, and these lights are incredible. I've been playing with off-road lights for years, and I've spent hundreds of dollars on different sets. I've got to say, these are the biggest improvement in lighting I've ever seen. I installed the 55 watt low beams (street legal), and 100 watt high beams (not street legal). The low beams are as bright, if not brighter, than the old high beams. The quality of the lighting is insane, it's better than I could have ever expected. I couldn't recommend these enough.
The high beam lights are off the chart. The fact is I will never bother installing another set of auxiliary lights again. Forget the other brands of auxiliary lights, they can't compare. If you're thinking of getting a set of auxiliary lights, try these first, you'll save a ton of money.
My only recommendations are (for 1990 K3500 Chevy's at least) the following. First, make sure you have a 5mm socket or wrench. Second, wear a pair of rubber surgical gloves when handling the bulbs. The installation is simple and totally strait forward. If you can change the head lights in your truck, you can do this. If you don't know how, check the owners manual; it's really simple (4 bolt/screws and 4 plugs).
Simply put, "Buy these now". You won't regret it, they're worth the money. I love them.

I have the same thing to say about these as i do the hella fog light bulbs (Item #529H135302). Didn't notices a big difference between these an the factory lights accept for these didn't light up the road with a yellow tint to them they light up the road with a nice clean, clear bright white.
