First off, I would like to say hello to all of you as this is my first post here. This board was exactly what I was looking for as a new TC owner! I do have a question, the low beam is a 9006 51W and I would love to change it out to something more "hid looking". What bulbs can i trust to not melt the housing, as I do think that would make me shed tears haha. If I stick to a normal 51W bulb I should be fine correct? Thanks for all the help guys:)

welcome to the site TCrazy!


yah, that should be fine... I made the mistake of using 100w bulbs once & well, yah, that was a mistake
Thanks Eric! I have been browsing around the internet looking for different types of 51W bulbs and most of them have markings that say 51W=100W 4000k which confuses me......is it 51W or 100W!!! My domestic car heritage is really showing through in my ignorance here haha.

What you'll want is a standard wattage buld. You could go with the PIAA extreme white or The Silvania i think, maybe its phillips
Silverstars. I would stay away from the really cheap painted blue bulbs. I read some where that its hard to get a whiter light than what comes standar with new cars these days. IMO it its not worth spending the money unless you going HID...

yeah, the last thing you want to do with a new car is melt the wiring harness

PS: post up some pics of your tC bulb swap
Not a problem, I plan to post up some photos of the car on Tuesday. I dont like showing off, but I got the ground effects kit and I know some people on here would be curious to see some decent pics of it maybe?

I would get HIDs, but too much $$$
