A little late, but I have the same lights and there is NO comparison to the Ultras. I used to use my off road HID lights (I live in the boonies), now that I have these lights I sold my 7" HIDs. I really like them, they plugged right in. I put some in the wife's Jeep before we traded it in, now I have to put a set in her 2007 Mustang GT.

Karl,

I'm confused. Do you prefer the Ultras or the ZXE's? I couldn't tell which from your post.

I'd like some clarification as well. I would prefer to not use HID's any longer...

Where the Ultras were a yellowish bulb, the ZXE is almost white. I really like them. As I said before, they make my 7" HID off road lights all but unneeded.

OK, thanks for clarifying. I think I'll start looking for deals on the ZXE'S bulbs.

This is good to hear, I've always wondered what the comparison between the two would be. Now I don't have to experiment on my own. Thanks!

Just curious, why do you say you would prefer to not use HIDs anymore? My BMW has adaptive HIDs and I absolutely love them, but they are also stock and in a projector housing.

HID off road lights are one thing, but aftermarket plug and play HID kits, when put into stock halogen lighting assemblies are (from all the research I've done) illegal. HIDs are much brighter than normal halogen headlights, thats why you see all the current (some older Acuras and Lincolns are an exception) OEM HIDs in cars behind projectors... The projector "projects" the light pattern in a specific area so as not to blind oncoming drivers - unlike the aftermarket kits in stock halogen assemblies that cast light everywhich direction, kinda like a flood light.

Unless I replace my stock lighting assemblies with projectors, I'll never use HID for headlights. And seeing as how I find pretty much all aftermarket projector lighting assemblies ugly as heck, I'll probably never run HIDs for headlights.

I'm currently running the Sylvannia ZXEs in my truck. If you click the link in my signature for my LED write up, you can see pictures of the headlights. I'm not sure that they're the greatest pictures in the world but hopefully they'll give you an idea.
