     Is that possible? Do they have H4s that are Ion Crystal while on low
beam and then clear on high beam!?! Because if so, I will definitely start
saving for those Euro lights that house H4s! BTW, if they are a reality, how
do they work - does the higher wattage simply overpower the Ion Crystal
coating? Also, this Nissan fanatic states they fit in his stock sockets....do
the SE-Rs have H4s or are they 9004s? H4s will not simply plug into 9004
sockets, right?? Does any lister have experience with these bulbs in their
headlamps? Sorry if I'm behind on the bulb technology. Thanks much.

P.S. Does any one of you list/web masters have PIAA's web site address? I
cannot seem to find it. I can find plenty of sites that are authorized
dealers of PIAA lamps, but I've been unable to find PIAA's actual homepage.
