No, $9 for 8000k H4s (halogen). You can find H4s on ebay from 9 to 20 bucks with free shipping, I have 5 sets. 8000K is the highest I've seen halogens before you have to go to HIDs.

Very first set I had one went out after 2weeks, I bought a different set from a different company I've had them for well over a year now. I bought a few more sets so I always have some. Every time a check ebay the are getting harder to find. I think they are well worth the money and are brighter and look better than silverstars.

I have Silverstar H13's, they're pretty bright but not up to what I thought.

If you have DRLs, you might want to disconnect it, and find an alternate DRL setup. The Silverstars, PIA ultra whites and most like them have a 900 to 1000 hrs life cycle. Running DRL on them kills them much too fast. Not sure what you are paying, but my PIAs run $75 a pair. My first set of Silverstars lasted 3 months ( I drive alot for work), then I went PIA, 5 months, now I have PIA again, but my DRLs are LEDs inside my grill.

Plastidipped my oems
cost: around $15 for two cans of plastidip and $6 for blue masking tape.
time: around 4-5 hours all together (cleaning wheels, waiting to dry/hand drying, could only do 2 at a time do to lack of resources. (jack stands)
I think the result turned out alright, works for now until I can either get them painted or find some cheap black rims.

Before:




During:




After:


also did my badges






Hope the pics arent too big... Planning on trying to blackout the lights and markers and considering painting the calipers. Also want to do some interior lights

I like the blacked out lettering (and wheels, mine are blacked out as well), but not sure I want to take the time to tape off each letter, I might just debadge. You have an abundance of patience.

I have SOME patience. Not that much though. I didnt tape off each letter, just the outside of them then once it dried I took a toothpick and rolled off the insides of the letters.
