Best plug-n-play bulb replacement

Title says it all. Looking for straight replacement bulbs for the corning lights and angels that would give them a bright white look. Any info would help. Thanks.

GP Thunders = simple installation & cheap. Only negative is it's not as bright as most would prefer.

The true test of brightness is broad daylight at night everything looks good on camera (in pictures)...... they use HID's as headlights for a reason

Yeah I agree with everyone that camaross setup looks clean. But how long did it take you to install them? 1-10 how hard was it to do?

Best setup for sure. On a scale of 1-10 1 being easiest and 10 hardest I would give it a 2. It did take me awhile though, but only cause the bulbs are a pain in the ass to get into the housing correctly. Not technically tough, just have to have them facing exactly right and only have room for two fingers at most in there. His kit makes it extremely easy it really is plug n play. I like that he used all different connectors so it's really impossible to plug it together wrong. Pics don't really come out nice cause the light is so intense looks better in person.
