I have no driver seat photos, sorry. I have ran these bulbs in various vehicles for over 2 years, with zero issues and great visibility. I have posted links on where to find them. K-Mart has had them as well. There are tons on ebay, just search "9003 Philips Crystal Vision Ultra"

I had them in my truck. I dont have it anymore. After I got them, everyone I knew got them also. I liked them better than my HIDs I have now. My headlights on my Focus are crap though.

Wiring will be fine. They are a 60w low and 55w high. I had them in my truck for 4 years with no problems. 1 set btw.

I just had another go out= the other side. Whats up w/ these bulbs? Before that I had the silver stars which went out more often. I replace this bulb w/ the one I have & then figure out what kind to get next time. Any ideas on headlight bulbs 9007's? I like the hella's, just need them to last longer, which I thought they would.

I remember reading a ton about headlight bulbs and then forgot most of it, almost immediately. However, bulbs that "burn" hotter or at a higher wattage will go out faster. I'm tempted to stay with stock, it's such a pain in the ass to be changing bulbs all the time. I"m still bitter about my Silverstars and changing them every 90 days.

I really like my SilverStar ZXE's for two reasons, every time I talk about my ZXE in my ZX3 it messes people up. And they are extremely clear at night, so long as you aren't in fog... It may just be me, but I've noticed brighter bulbs are worse in fog?

@replica81: Wow! I ran the same set of Silverstars that were in the car when I bought it for almost 2 years! I didn't change them because they went out, I changed them because I had some money and wanted better bulbs...

I'm w/ you there= no more silverstars for me. The right side is easy, the drivers side I have to undue the steeda sri to get to the bulb.
