Default replacement bulbs

I am interested in replacing the bulbs on my headlights and fog lights..I see some at a local store almost 50$ for 2 bulbs...I see some blue coloured bulbs on ebay for 8.99 + 6.99$ shipping..the4 seller claims they are 30% brighter....Should I buy them or are they crap?? Where is the best place to buy led dome, map, and licence plate bulbs???

Phil. I went to Wal*Mart and bought the Sylvania SilverStars. They are way brighter than the OEM bulbs. I first bought the Low Beams and when I had them on and the fog lights, it made the fogs look yellow in caparison.

You need the 9006XS for low beam and 9006ST for the fogs.

I'd buy them from an autoparts store so if you don't like them, you can take them back. Got my first set of super white bulbs from AutoZone about 5 years ago. My son said one of them was out now so I got another set from Walmart for $20.

get the HID (High Intensity Discharge) bulbs, i got them on my PT as you can see in my pics and are about 300% brighter and pass the traffic laws so they are good buy for 140 bux. get the 6000k or the 8000k from 3B Specialties

BTW.... your also gonna need a battery relay kit that connects str8 to the battery for better results and no flcikering lights.

I notice that you guys are both first time posters, and that you are suggesting a vendor of aftermarket parts. Loathe though I may be to interfere in the affairs of another country, this always raises red flags (not the Maple Leaf kind) for me.

nevertheless, welcome to the forum, and I hope we will see many PT Cruiser related posts from you!

Matt42,

I go along with what your thinking. They won't be back, at least not under the username that that had.

for the leds, I got a pair of ''ultra white'' leds froms ebay for 4,99$, the only thing is that they are more blue than ''ultra white'', but I'm satisfied. I installed one for the licence plate light and one in the trunk light
