In my truck I Run the stock bulbs and in it kind of like the yellowish look but I will admit they arnt the brightest but think that is because of it being so high as it is lifted I would say my foglights and low beams are decent but not as bright as just lowbeams on the Accord.
I just thought I would give my reviews of the bulbs I have tried and see what everyone else ran and thought of theirs. For some reason I like aftermarket bulbs I don't know why. I have read all the reports of things saying you loose visability with them and with a lot of the blue ones that seems to be true and may be true with the Xenon Crystals as they didn't seem as bright as the Farenheits but not far behind so I would say probably about like stock I don't think they are much worse. I didn't see a loss at all with the Farenheits and didn't with the Super Plasma's either.
Here are some pictures of the differnt bulbs I have tried although the Crystals and Farenheit picture the car seems to be at an angle as the Farenheits don't seemthat much brighter Only thing I can figure out was it was at an angle.
Here is a picture of the Farenheit on the left Eurolite Xenon Crystals on the right.
Here is a picture of the Stock and Farenheit bulbs it wasn't as good of a camera and you can't really tell a differnce in brightness but they are a little brighter and color wise you can see a tiny differnce.

You can't tell the difference. The PIAA's cost me something like $60 a pair.
Next on my list is a "headlight upgrade kit" which runs the headlights directly off the battery through a pair of relays controlled by the stock harness. Voltage at the headlight jumps from about 10.8 VDC to battery voltage which when the truck is running is near 13 VDC.
Following that will be a pair of GE Nighthawk bulbs from ChinaMart (Walmart) which most people feel are better than the Sylvania SilverStars.
