4750k And since the Pathfinder uses a 'dual-fillament' (same low & high) the size is 9007.

Okay I have a question...on fleabay the "super white mtec" 9006 bulbs are selling for $19.99...but the "cosmos blue mtec" 9006 bulbs are selling for $39.99...why would these be twice as much? I'm just curious as to which are better, not which are just more expensive. The super whites have a rating of 4350K and the cosmos blue ones have a rating of 4750K. TX or someone else please chime in...

LOL! Good question bro. I inquired the same.... My understanding is that "process" of manufacturing the bulb wa smore expensive and thus passed on down to us the consumer. Ay any rate. as long as he keeps his word and replaces these bad boys should they burn out, then it's all good. If it's consolation... $40 is @ the average for comparables like Sylvania and less than PIAA both of which I haven't been impressed with...

Default 9005 4350k

My MTec 9005 4350K bulbs were just delivered Yesterday. Just wanted to share. They're definately brighter than the Silverstars that I had previously.

TX (or anyone else who can answer), I had the Silverstars in my SC initially and liked them a lot better than stock...then I found out about the PIAA "Xtreme White" series and liked those better than the Silverstars. Now here comes the Mtec's. For anyone who has seen or tried these bulbs, what are your opinions of the Mtec's vs. the PIAA's?

hey i dont know if you took a picture of the bulb for the mtec 4750k , but im just wondering if you could take a picture of it ?? i bought the mtec 4350k and the bulb seems way shorter than my sylvania silverstar, and after putting them on i notice less brightness output from my headlights, i bought the mtec 4350k from the same ebay seller as yours

From personal experience, the PIAA plasma FX, and Plasma Blue are the best PIAA bulbs I've used, and have used almost all of them. I absolutely HATE the PIAA superwhites... they look like brighter stock bulbs,... the Plasma series bulbs have a multi-color gold coating, and are the closest bulbs I've seen to HID color,.. not the same intensity obviously, but color to the ground is close.

I haven't seen the MTEC bulbs, but I can say right now, with Silverstar 9006's and PIAA plasma H3's, ... you can see a differnce in the "pureness" of output between the two.

I am looking to go HID, so hopefully I will not be worrying about halogens anymore....

My pics. I'm happy with them, although I need to get used to them. It's hard for me to tell if they seem brighter, but when they cross paths with other cars headlights, I can seem to still see my color above theirs.

Old vs New


Old

New


New on wall


Front of car (WTC was my camera's problem??)


So now I need to do something about those foglights!

I was waiting to see the MTECs in a 'projector' application! As I figured, they look awesome!!!

dragondx,

I noticed my 4750k were slightly larger than stock.

thanks for the reply, it seems like the 4350k have different bulb designs than the 4750k, it is slightly smaller than my stock bulbs, and it is way smaller than the sylvania silverstars, it also has a thick blue filter slapped on to it. i bought the 4750k and i hope i get the same good results as yours
