New Fogs + SilverStar Headlights

After my brain fart on friday, I finally got the new fog bulbs installed.

Just recently heard russmistro tried these and they burned out in 3 days, Hope I dont have such luck, but I bought a pair of Nokya 2500k 55w fog bulbs for my 2010 se.
Night Picture, new yellow fogs in with STOCK oem headlights, the yellow really lights up a good distance further than stock bulbs, and I like the look :



And here is from this morning, rainy day, so you can see the white & brightness of the silver stars, and Will be getting a night shot too, because these are crappy cell pics that do not really show the light that well:

Regular Silverstars or Silverstar Ultras? I got the SSU's installed a few weeks ago. Like the look of them so far, I'm just glad I didn't pay retail for a set of bulbs that have an expected life of 12 months.

Just regular silverstars, they do not make the Ultra's in the size H13 dual beam bulbs currently. I would have went with them instead, but these are def. worth the $$ IMO.

Halo's Angle-eye's

Guess it depends on the freeways or roads you drive on. What bulbs do you use for the driving lights or foglights? I know they use a H-11 bulb. Who makes a good Halo's or Angle-eye's? Spec-D's or Enzo's? And are ''Eagle Eye'' brand any good or are they low quality?

I got the same Silverstars and I was rather dissappointed. I bought Silverstars for the fogs and headlights. The light is definitely somewhat brighter, and I get a lot more thrown downroad (as I've noticed with the shine on streetsigns), even if it really doesn't illuminate much. BUT, they aren't nearly as white as I thought they'd be! There is a tinge of white in there, but I was hoping for something slightly more dramatic for the 80 bucks I paid for these, but I don't want HID's =/
