Has any one had experience with Blue Balls [:0],.... uh, sorry, I mean Blue Bulbs?
Anyway I'm looking for the replacement bulbs that are very white compared to the slightly amber stock bulbs. I think Blue Bulbs might be one type.

Get the "Bright Lites" version of the clear bulbs. They use a Xenon gas for an even brighter white than halogen. They are NOT the blue HID lights like you see on the Audi's, BMW's and Mercedes, etc. Those are a complete headlight assembly, no bulbs. But if you like the look of the Blue lights you can get almost any size bulb with the blue tinted glass. Auto Parts stores are just crawling with the blue tinted bulbs. (I used to work for NAPA auto parts) I personally like the clear Brite Lites version because they cast the brightest light to the ground, and that is what i use in both my car and sled. The blue tinted ones are not as bright.

I had blue lights in my truck. Don't do it. Stick with the bright whites. The blue tint might look cool when you're comming at someone but the tint doesn't do squat for seeing the road. Now on snow maybe they work beeter.

Hey, don't forget about new John Deere tractors, you can get them with HID lights too.

There was an article last year on the different bulbs, but I can't remember which mag it was in . They compared them all side by side in all for brands of sleds. If someone can find this article it might help alot.
