Need help with headlight upgrade....

Just got a 2011 SES & wanted to upgrade the headlights..... I wanted the silverstar ultras but i can't find them for the high/low beam (h13). They do have the ultras for the fogs (h11)....Anyone know if the ultra (h13) are made yet? Or , what is the recommended headlight upgrade?.... I have heard alot about HID but do not want to spend over $100 bucks for them... All the HID projectors i seen were like $300-$400. Thanks for any help.

yeah I'm pretty sure the Silverstar ultras aren't made in h13. The only projectors for the 08+ would be the HALOS. Go to DDM tuning for HIDS. You can get a kit for under 100 stones.

They do have some nice looking projectors for the 08+. If you dont want to spend that money though you could always put hids in the housings you have now, you can get a kit for about $45 from DDM Tuning.

Make sure to get it in 35W though.

Go with DDMTuning and get their H13 Hi/Lo kit. You will be more than happy with the output even with the stock housings.

I would look into using these in your stock headlights if you're the DIY type
