Piaa lights

One of my lights burnt out. And I really don't want to spend 60$ for a bulb. I'm a teenager btw. Any alteratives?

When I had my PIAA lights I too the bulb out and went to Advance Auto. I got one (don't remember the exact # ) that wasn't an exact match, but it worked fine. I think they were $7 each.

Watch out for cheap imposters. They may be as bright but some draw a lot more power and can heat up the wiring

was it even remotely simmilar or you just made it work?
its the kind where it comes with the ground hooked to a wire and it has a big base that clips into the light. its not just a snap in bulb.

Mine were the H3 bulbs in 540 lights. I didn't get into all the 55= 100w special coating bulbs. I went with a regular H3 bulb after looking on the net.
