Polarg M4 Hyper White, PIAA Xtreme White Plus, Phillips CV or DV

hi guys, im planning to change my oem bulbs for better visibility.
i want to have the brightest, whitest (slight tint of blue is okay) beam that i can without creating too much glare for others.

which one is the best?
polarg m4 hyper white, piaa xtreme white plus, phillips crystal vision, or phillips diamond vision?

i really appreciate the help. thanks

I heard piaa's are brighter but they're more expensive than polargs. However, I got mine off amazon for about $3 cheaper than the website. Also got free shipping. I'll get it installed this weekend if I have time and I'll post pics up.

What about GP Thunders?

I was on the fence about choosing GP Thunders or a DDM HID kit, and I went with the latter as it comes with a lifetime warranty for just 80 bucks.

OK I still recommend GP Thunders 7500k they are not HIDs. I have heard great things about them and you can pick them up on ebay for $15 shipped.

I just got the V2 GP Thunders installed in my car.

I bought h7 series, 55w, both 7500k and 8500k. I ended up putting 8500k in the headlights and 7500k in the fogs as I wasn't thrilled by the light output or the color of the 7500k, still a bit yellow/white for my taste.

I will upload pictures soon, but I don't have any fantastic cameras, so its hard to get a shot of the car without getting too much glare from the headlights making them look ricey... It looks 100% oem xenon though, but they are simply tinted halogens.

Wait!
Question to the op. What are you planning to change? Headlights? Eyelids? The piaas I ordered are for my eyelids. If you're changing headlights I highly recommend going HID route, if you're looking for brightness. And I believe that it's not hard to change as well. There was a thread last year reguarding this issue.

I think he meant the low beams. Since most of the bulbs are like for low beam use...

^ yes i meant low beam. i dont want to use hid because first i hate it when people give out too much glare for me (like those with blue xenon or what not) and second, my advisor says its gonna void my warranty. yet, he says its ok to change only the bulbs with aftermarket bulb with same wattage

I can confirm that the Phillips CV 4300K H7 fogs are a perfect match for the OE HIDs.
