HID's for sure. Well proven by many users on here. I've ran them in EB, EF, AU and on my motorbikes.

They are more efficient, use less power and generate less heat.

Yep, I used them in my AULTD, EDXR6 and EFXR6 low and high beam. Besides the few seconds it takes to get to full power, it's great.

without the reflector style lens they aren't perfect. They should be adjusted down a little bit. In any case, still far better than the standard globes.
