Which H4 housing?
 
I'm going to use the Putco H4 wiring harness and PIAA Xtreme White H4 bulbs when I do my H4 conversion, but I can't decide which housings to buy.

Which do y'all suggest?

I was looking at projector housings, but I can't find any clear, smoked or black ones without the ricer halo ring. I'd love to have 5" round lens inside a 5x7 housing, but I've yet to find even a prototype. :laugh:

Yep. Autopal E-Codes less than $50 to your door off Ebay.

I ordered the harness, bulbs and housing off amazon for $148 and saved about $20.

Thanks for the help. I can't wait to have better headlights.

This will be a very enlightening experience for you.

How are Hella light bulbs? I saw these 55w/100w bulbs on amazon while looking at bulbs for my girlfriend's Escape. The 100w high beam would be nice on the poorly lite and dark back roads around me.

The hella bulbs are decent.

I've got Hellas as well, no complaints. Unless you're really picky the bulbs don't really matter as long as they're appropriate for on road use. The light output over stock is so significant you won't even think about what bulbs you should have gotten.

I don't drive at night much, so anything over stock will amaze me. :laugh:

That's how it was for me, the difference was crazy at first. I've had some 60/55w Hellas for the last 6 months or so but now that my eyes are getting used to them I ordered some 100/80s. I don't do a lot of night driving but I do go to work before the sun comes up and with winter coming I want some more light, especially with all the deer we get around here. I could have bought them in the first place but I've spent a whopping $21 this year on headlight bulbs, changing them isn't exactly breaking the bank.
