No High Beams...?

I noticed last night that my high beams were not working! I went and looked at the lights and the bulbs are completely missing! I don't know why they are gone, but whoever owned it before me obviously removed them. The black connectors that attach to the bulbs seem to be quite gunked up with a yellowish white material. I have no idea why it's like this. Any reason someone would completely remove their brights? Also, what type of bulbs do you guys recommend?

Re: No High Beams...?

no clue why, but just get some new ones. The high beams are H1 bulbs and you'll need the white connector that goes with them. I think I may have some sitting around in my garage I can sell you if you'd like

Ok thanks.
So what is this white connector? If I buy new bulbs it doesn't come with what I would need? I would definitely be interested in picking up whatever I need from you. lol Also, any recommendation on brand, where to buy etc. for the bulb?

Razo or Nokya will give u a good quality and long life. Ebay is a good choice for the bulb( remember to choose 'brand new' bulb)
