I've done quite a bit of searching for Canadian sources and they're not cheap anywhere. If you want Bosch or Hella, they will cost at least $550. I paid $275 CDN for each side, so a total of $550, shipping included. I purchased them directly through my mechanic. I've known him for over 10 years, so the markup was minimal. This was for the Bosch Euros, complete with the vacuum hookup and with side markers (orange).

Thanks for the tip, that's what I figured. I'm just wondering if it is worth the hassle... Will 100/55W really give a visible difference over 60/55W Xenons? Larry Bible stated that's it's more to do with the reflector in the lights than the bulbs... many choices...

any more advice out there??
