You need an H3 bulb.
At any auto store.

A PIAA and a Sylvania bulb are bout the same quality. You'd be better off buying a Sylvania in my opinion. They're a few bucks.

Why spend the money on a coated bulb that is used to pass light through a dichroic lens?

My advice is to just buy a normal replacement bulb.

Or do what I'm doing and use an HID kit.
