    What is the best (brightest, and longest sight distance) brand replacement for the H11 low beams on our FiST? I currently trying out some Sylvania Ultras, but not greatly impressed, not sure if I am truly seeing much of a difference? I have seen some decent prices on PIAA bulbs online. Are the PIAA worth the extra cost? And what about those Sylvania ZXE bulbs? Are they good? Or just for the blue ricer look?

    I just picked up 2 sets of. H11 PIAA, the Night-Tech and Xtreme White, I'll try to do a comparison between them all, and the stock bulbs.

    I had a coupon for using eBay mobile and used it to pick up a set of ZXE bulbs for around $20, I figure it would be worth a shot. I had done the H9 conversion on my 2011 Fiesta, along with HIR high beams and the results were great. The ST seems like the headlights are a pair of candles in comparison. I am very interested in seeing how the H11 PIAA's do.

    Yea, as much as I wanted to do the H9/HIR upgrade, I wanted to stick to the OEM bulbs as much as possible.

    I don't own a FiST, I've got the SE, but eitherway had joined both fiestafaction and this forum for more information before buying the car, and I'm using both as sources for mods/questions/parts!

    I received my Xtreme White's last night, and haven't had the chance to put them in my car yet, nor the Night-Tech, I'll try to do a comparison between the following:
    Osram H11 Cool Blue from The Retrofit Source
    PIAA H11 Night-Tech
    PIAA H11 Xtreme White

    Hopefully I can do the comparison this upcoming long weekend.

    Definitely want to know these results. Wish you could also try the Ultras like I have now, along with the ZXE too.

    Ship them out to me and I'll compare them! They sell the zXe at my local Canadian Tire, but not willing to spend more on lighting at the moment :p

    I've tried searching for this kind of comparison, and didn't find much for the Fiesta...

    The Ultra you are talking about are the Philips H11 CrystalVision Ultra?

    Here are the hi/lo and fog lights I installed.

    The ZXE's have a blue tint on the bulb but the light is white and noticeably brighter and whiter than stock. No one will confuse it with HID's but it is a very good upgrade for the price.

    Do you have any pictures of the output?

    I'll be doing the install this evening and hopefully take pictures of everything.
