God Save my Camaro

If you have been following every post so far, you would have seen that my coolant reservoir bottle is leaking. While I appreciate you being bombarded by my array of my constant right jabs and left hooks, my posts, I have yet another dissapointing review.

As you may know, I've been running Oracle H.O.D. H13 bulbs for my halogen housing for less than a year now. I've installed them on August 10th, and one of the bulbs fried on me recently. Tsk tsk tsk.

However, there is a bigger deal going on here than just a burnt lightbulb. Apparently, this bulb has quite a few negative testimonials. One member on the C5 Forums stated that this bulb melted his stock harness! I'm glad in my case, only the bulb died. For $40, I thought it was a good deal, but it is not worth the risk. Frankly, I'll tell you guys right now, I'm not going back to AAC and Oracle products. There are lots of options out there guys, you just have to look. AAC Style seems to have dominated the Camaro community because of their marketing.

My verdict? This is a piece of shit. That's right, I said it. The color isn't even white. It's just a bit whiter than the stock. Don't be fooled by the pictures... it's still tinted slightly yellow. DO NOT BUY!

I'm back to my OEM halogens right now. However, I plan on getting something new soon.


  1. O_O not cool J, not cool. Just kidding, I kind of agree with you, AAC has really dominated lighting options for the camaro, Especially on C5, which in part is purely due to their excellent marketing. Now with that said, I can't openly dis them just yet. I'm still pretty interested in some of their other products that I've heard some good reviews on. I was actually planning on trying their interior LEDs (Dome and Trunk) in the next week or so. I won't try to defend them at all but I think I'll still keep them on my radar. I guess what I'm trying to say is. Heck, I'll be a lab rat for some things just because it interest me, but I'd be pissed if it melted a harness :P. Feels like one of those "take it with a grain of salt" situations. I'll dodge the H13s for now, and hopefully in the future I can post about my hate/love of the LEDs.

    just my .02 though, not trying to offend.

  2. Hey man, no problems. Even if you are defending them, this wasn't meant to be a debate. I got a crap product, and I'm just voicing it to you guys =p. Doesn't offend me if you buy AAC stuff at all. Heck, I'm the hypocrite, I have the footwells, and LED dome lights as well LOL. Those haven't died on me just yet ;)

    Hope you get those on soon! Post on the FB page when you got some cool pics =D. And yes, just stay away from the H13 HODs for now =p.
