    Default Spyder headlamp replacement bulb

    I want to replace my headlamp bulbs in the Spyder. Are they a standard 55 watt H7 two prong bulb? BRPs part number is no help to me.

    I am looking to replace them with these. Trying to find a cheap way of getting my headlights closer to the color temp of my dayrunners.

    Yes they are 55 watt H7 bulbs in a Spyder.

    Although a tiny bit closer in color, these will not match the Day Runners, as the Day Runners are closer to 6500K range which takes a true HID to reach.

    I was afraid you might say that. $13.99 or $225.00? And it's not just the money, although that's a big part of it. It's also the ability to do some of this work. I sure can't afford to pay somebody to install this stuff for me. I should have never came to this site and I wouldn't even be aware of all the neat stuff available for the Spyder. Oh well, maybe I'll just have to take on a second job.

    Just do it like Roaddog does......He orders all kinds of crap, then calls me up to let me know that "WE" have to install it.......
    .....although the "WE" part ends up being me installing, and him talking on his phone to anyone that will listen.....

    Seriously, I'll bet there's folks where you are that would help you out with some installs......

    i doubt that you are going to get results you are looking for with those bulbs.(i've tried many) if you do not wish to spend 225 bucks, at least get the whitest piaa bulbs. it's still not going to be white as 6500k but better.
    by the way, if you can change bulbs on headlight, you CAN do the hid. if you can get to the bulbs, rest is easy.
