These bulbs project light extremely well, turning off and unmounting the Sylvania Cool blues, then installing the Plasma GT's right off the bad you can see a big difference. Forget side by side comparing, these blow the Sylvania's away. Dark road driving was a blast, and that was with just the low beam. Sitting in the car the light does seem soft projecting outwards, but rest assured they do travel quite far a head. and illuminate the road ahead. The projection arc is quite wide and looks good on the brick wall test. The one thing that I give top marks for is the high beams, although I never really use them cause of City driving. I was suprised to see how far out they would hit reflective objects and signs.
Color/Style/Night time look
The color depth of this bulb is good and solid. But I must admit when ordering these bulbs I was worried about them being to purple. But the hue of purple is fine and looks legit. Doesn't seem to harsh. The color is rare, I haven't seen this before so it will turn heads for that aspect. The advertised feature of seeing the color purple even with the lights off is somewhat true but this depends on your headlight housing/mirrors. When the lights are on and you do a walk by the run of the car, you can see the slight purple effect shimmer slightly. In regards to the Night time look, the beam is solid and pure on a side car profile. On a rainny or foggy night there is actually an enhancing of the purple. Driving with just day lights is pleasing as well, they color is quite visible.
Be warned though, these bulbs are NOT!!!! DOT or SAE approved, so just be clear about that. But in all respect, they do look like some stock H.I.D. systems out there. So unless your really unlucky and you meet a cop hell bent on busting your nutz, then you should be fine.
Was it worth the price of 106$ Canadian, Yes if your looking for a bulb that is rare in color and something that projects well, then get this bulb. But if your not into purple then get the regular Super plasma bulb. They have a color effect that is a good alternative to this bulb (blue). Coated with a metalic silver layer, it causes the multifacited color effects that some H.I.D. produce at different angles of view. If your buying these bulbs and your worried about warrenty then be a little wise to buy them with your Mastercard or Visa if you have the Extended Warrenty feature on them. I feel pretty secure with a 2 year warrenty on the bulbs so. I think I am getting my moneys worth. But for some 106 dollars is pretty hefty.
