I never thought those wedge bulbs were for actually illuminating anything. Afterall, they are quite small, and don't draw any more than what...5 watts for the M4?? As far as I'm concerned, they are just there to be "on" when the high beams aren't blasting away.....

Dex had them in his (old) GS and they made a noticible difference in brightness. However, when we did a side-by-side comparison with the PIAAs I have in my fogs, the Silverstars were definitely dimmer.

This of course is a couple years ago... I haven't watched to see if the Silverstars have had any 'new releases' that may have improved their product. Still very good bang for the buck IMO.

the m6 are 18w and they are a lot brighter than the m4.

if you drive on the road and see a gs with hid, you see that the high beam housing is actually lid up pretty well (not glaring, but you can see) by the wedge bulb. so putting in the m4 will help

just take out the wedge from one of the two housing, and drive around. you see something very ugly

oem hid?! you mean the hid bulb?! if so that's d2r

if you talk about color matching, it's 50/50 imho. both bulbs have their wins on color matching the oem hid.

Ahhhhhhh....I finally got them....

Bjunion SMD LED - Purple/White

Its actually 1 blue SMD LED, and 5 Superwhite SMD LED.




They are less blue that the pic suggests. As for matching the 6000K HIDs....these seem to be the best matching....next would be the matrix LED bulb....but you will need to bend some LEDs to get the bulb thru the wedge bulb opening....i did that and a few LEDs blew.
