Default low beam stock and highbeam xenon

The previous owner put the aftermarket highbeam in. I want them to match the low beam which is the basic lame light. What bulb would you guys recomend. Not looking to do any big mod either. Just change the low beam bulb. Ideas? Thanks in advance.

H7 for both Hi and Lo beams.

The bulbs are the same it's the reflectors that are diff.

I get H7 "Xenon" bulbs from ebay for 10$. Have a slight blue-ish tint, are much brighter than stock but are no HID for sure.

if you got 80$ and the time. HID are worth it from what i've read.

any particular model number or name I should look for? What would you recomend? I do want a bright light with a blueish tint possibly, and like I said I am jus looking to swap bulbs not a intense mod.

That's what I did. Just installed it on Friday. Definitely worth the money if headlight style points matter to you at all.

That's what they're called, Sylvania Silverstars. Just gotta find them in the H7 bulb size.

i highly recommend the DDMtuning kits. They are absolutly perfect and should be worth more money than you pay for them!
Just buy the slim balast 35W H7 car kit (http://www.ddmtuning.com/Products/DD...ast-35W-or-55W)
You wont be sorry!
Plus the silver stars use more power, and create more heat than stock, the HIDs create almost no heat at all.

Here is where i mounted the balasts:

And just cram all those wires under the headlights.
