Looking for options on headlights

I am not going to install HID's on my W204 due to bad experiences with my Audi. I was looking into Phillips DiamondVision today on ECS Tuning and I bumped into ZIZA H7 Platinum White Halogen Bulb. They come in 6000K and 7500K colors. Anybody tested these? Are they reliable? See attached pic for 7500K color. To me they look promising.

Just go with an HID kit from AZNOptics. Very good quality kit with no problems. I made a DIY video here

I had bad experiences with HID kits. Sticking to the basics.

The Audi didn't ruin it, the HID kit did.

No opinion on the Ziza bulbs, but I have Phillips Diamond Vision in both lows and fogs. Best bulb I've had.

I'm willing to bet, ebay will be cheaper than ECS.

How's your experience been with these bulbs in the rain? I read some reviews saying that they don't perform well in rain - so I opted out from getting these.

For the most light output, Philips X-Treme Power H7 is a pretty decent choice. It's about the brightest H7 you can get, of course it's still a H7, but it is definitely brighter. Longevity won't be as good as stock of course.

However, it is not a special blue color, it's just normal bright halogen color, slightly whiter than a stock H7 though as it has the blue and platinum looking band around the bulb. They are made in Germany.
