Talking Got my HIR headlight bulbs today! -- 07 WK 5.7L

Bought them from http://hirheadlights.com/

Got one set of the 9011 (low, 9005 eq) and one set 9012 (high, 9006 eq). going to file down the tabs as required to fit the stock housing and I'll install one set on each side tonight and fire them up to see how they look. One thing I'll note is that they look very similar if not identical to the original bulbs and do NOT have the bulbous shape as shown on the website (see below).

Cost was $24.95 each + $8 shipping for all.







I received these

Re: Got my HIR headlight bulbs today! -- 07 WK 5.7L

Installed and tested and as much as I want to say they made a big diff, they didn't seem to. I have to discuss this with the seller and try them out tonight (didnt take them out for a drive with both sets last night).

same temperature, a little more intense in the middle and more scatter up top as shown in the pix (right side, passenger installed HIR hi/lo) left side is 9006 and 9005

First pic shows the lights, second has the levels turned down to show the HIR bulb is in fact a little more intense, but not noticeably without altering the picture

yeah i want to return these for sure. thankfully paypal changed its rules nov 1st to include items not as described being covered under the buyer protection guarantee OUTSIDE of ebay now too. These are definitely NOT what was shown on his website and nowhere near what I expected. I've seen pictures on forums for corvettes and the guys lights were insanely bright, these are barely a discernible difference.

I just wrote him and explained that what he sent me looked like 9005 and 9006 with 9011 and 9012 stamps. Design wise and structurally they are identical with the exception of a small glass collar inside the HIR bulbs below the filament but NOTHING to lead me to believe these would be higher/clearer output than the standard halogen. Pretty sure the bulb shape plays largely into the light emission.

I havent told him I posted this stuff on this forum....yet.

Re: Got my HIR headlight bulbs today! -- 07 WK 5.7L

well according to this site, these are apparently the new 3rd gen lights. if so, i am not impressed.

Re: Got my HIR headlight bulbs today! -- 07 WK 5.7L

I wanted to followup on this and rescind my earlier comments as premature. I am actually very happy with my HIR bulbs (I did receive 3rd gen lights) they are definitely brighter than stock and have more side splash.
