I've been using the Nokya lights in my car for a little over a year now, and they have worked perfectly. I highly recommend them.

Can any of you post some pics of your Yellow if you have them for the ow beams and OR if you have them in your DRL's? I plan on getting the Nokya's for my HI and Low beams. I hate to be a stickler but can you do a distance shot if you have one, so I can see what it will b like from oncomng traffic too?

Thanks

Yes absolutely. They are more intense than the Nokya. I haven't tried the other brand.

I have in my honda element. The bulbs are way too expensive and the life of the bulbs suck. Went out in a year. I would never purchase PIAA again. plus their temperature descriptions are not what they actually output.

Why must everything be "JDM" for it to sell?? Seriously!?!?!

I'd say the wattage will prove them to be more different. Normal 55 watts you will not be able to tell a difference. Unless you are GOD and you can see the 1/10th of a shade difference. Standard coated yellow bulbs will be yellow, it's going to be a brand bash. I like this brand over this brand etc......

BTW I have 3000K Noyka as my high beams. I went HID for my fogs, standard bulbs do nothing for me as fog lights.

No I think you are just used to mis labeled and incorrectly tested bulbs.
PIAA is the only company approved for use on all continents.

Here's one thread on 8th that clarifies also:

Clear up confusion on the 9005 Nokya JDM yellow bulbs..



Also, here's a closeup of the packaging:

I just got mine , packaging is identical but mine are 65W as opposed to the 80W you have??

x2. The life on PIAA bulbs suck. Mine went out in less then a year in my Honda Pilot. I ended up replacing them with a really cheap HID kit. The HIDs are x5 brighter and have lasted over a year... surprisingly...

I've had my Nokyas for about 6-7 months now. I use the highbeams almost everyday too so im glad they've lasted this long. Def bought them for cosmetics rather than performance/ output. LOL
