Sylvania Silverstars

Put in a set of Slyvania Silverstars on the foci today. I had to wait till dark to try them out but man what an improvement. I would def. recommend these to anyone who is fed up with stocks like I was but does not want to spend a bundle. I know there is better options out there but for $29 @ meijer i couldn't go wrong. And the install took about 5 min. once i figured out how the retainer spring held the bugger in the housing. I know theses have been talked about on here b4 but i thought i would put my 2 sense in.

as a previous owner of silvania's i agree with you... but that was on my 05... and now my 07.... i can only top what i did before and this car will be getting an HID kit...

I just installed the Silverstar Ultras in my '06 and in my '04 Dakota.. they do make a huge difference. I am looking to get these for the parking/turn signal bulbs now. http://www.bulbman.com/index.php?mai...oducts_id=7842 Not from this company perhaps. But they illuminate Yellow/Amber as required for the turn signals but they look clear when there off. figure until I can get some HID's or something, it'll clean up the headlights a bit ( Well, after I get my clear side markers too )

Silverstars are awesome. I live on a road with a deer problem, and they have saved my butt a couple of times in the month I've had them. I'll have to look into those Ultras when mine wear out.

I just got a set of Silverstars and they are AWESOME. I bought some cheap bulbs off eBay that were supposed to be awesome, they were just dyed blue and dangerous. I should have known better for $9. Anyways, got the new Silverstars and they are really great.
