    Default Brightest, whitest H3 bulb?

    I've got one of those aluminum Vector 1.5 million CP spotlights. It's got what I think is a 100 watt H3 bulb. What is the brightest, whitest bulb I can find to put into this thing? I seem to remember that it has to have a bulb with a filament that is vertical, and not horizontal, is this true?

    Either a horizontal or vertical (axial) filament will work. The H-fil just throws an oblong spot. The Vector bulbs seem to be pretty good. You can get a visibly "whiter" beam by using any of the blue coated bulbs. If you want to try it, get the cheapest you can find. It's not worth it to put a Silverstar or PIAA or Optilux in there.

    Is 100 watt the brightest H3 they make? If not, do you think I'll have any problems with higher wattage and the plastic reflector?

    I have a 120 (or 130) watt bulb that was made by PIA. I haven't been able to find it on their website, and it might be a pretty old bulb. A friend of mine got it for a reduced price at the place he takes his car.
