A couple of things to remember..
Pretty much all halogen bulbs are based on xenon.
'Xenon' bulb is often used as a marketing term for the blue looking bulbs.
REAL 'blue' light bulbs are HID's, very expensive, and you cannot get them for
your supra. They are not actually blue, but look blue at night.
FAKE blue bulbs work by using a blue tint to the glass, which significantly
lowers the visibility for the driver and increases glare for other drivers.
The BEST vision is actually given by a yellow bulb. If you want to see the
road clearest, a yellow bulb is the answer.
Last time I comapred 3 types of the 'high performance high output' type bulbs
versus the standard ones in my supra, they were all exactly as bright as each
other (at the same wattage).
