GP Thunder dealers in Canada

Alberta specifically would be nice but anywhere in Canada would do.

The bulbs themselves are inexpensive and tend to burn out quick but once a Canadian pays $20 or so for bulbs, its ridiculous to pay $20 odd dollars for shipping.

I spent $8 shipping from e92-lighting

Also the bulbs were only 16.99 so not bad.

Are you on your first set or do you find these POS bulbs dont last either?

I have a brand new pair in the box that I never put on the car if you're interested. I switched to an LED option before even taking delivery of my car.

I had GPs on my E60 for 2.5 years, without any problems. I can throw in my old pair as well if you want some back-ups just in case.

How much and which GP's do you have 7500 or 8500 version2? Which LED's did you go with?

Here's what I have sitting around the garage:

1 set brand new H8 8500k v2.
1 set 2.5 yo H8 8500k v2.
1 set 2.5 yo H3 8500 v2 (cornering/reverse bulb).

Both used pairs were working perfectly when I removed them upon lease return.

How about $25 shipped for the new pair, or $35 for all 3 sets?

I switched to the Weisslicht LEDs. I don't think they're as bright as the LUX8 or AiBs, but also not as expensive. I haven't seen LUX or AiB in person. Close to $200 IIRC for the Weisslichts.

Great deal you have, although I am looking for 7500k. 8500k is too blue for my taste but again wicked deal for those looking for a blue look.

Thanks though

No problems. I found the 8500 to be a nice temp match (not blue really at all) to the xenons myself, but I haven't done a side-by-side comparison with the 7500s. Takes a while to forget just how yellow the stock H8s are!
