true upgrade would be Silverstar Ultra's. nice white light. the cool blues arent really that blue. and dont illuminate the road much better than stock

Not worth it.

These bulbs cost 20-40 dollars and their live span is short, you're better off getting a HID set that will last IMO... I've seen my reviews where they say these bulbs last a very short time.

According to Sylvania: "Since our SilverStar(r) ULTRA headlights are up to 50% brighter than standard halogen, they will have a shorter life span when compared to our other products. Part number 9005SU will last for approximately 125 hours of "on time", 200 hours for part 9006SU."

A guy also said "Compared to the regular SilverStar, the Silverstar ULTRA headlights were supposed to "last up to 30% longer". I have used the Silverstar in the past and decided to give the Ultra a try. They only lasted 6 months."

It's up to you but, it just seems like a waste of money to me...

Good luck

there are a lot of possibilities out there. stay away from blue or red as the police will pull you over and tell you you can't use those colors and give you a ticket.

your best bet (unless you want to do some modding on you headlight harness) would probably be to just go with silverstar, like scrammer said.

most of what you'll see on this website [ http://www.automotivelightingusa.co...ath=10&zenid=708882c7b4b540d14b18a01f4824cab4 ] are higher wattage bulbs, but you get the idea of whats out there.

I have tried the Xenon gas filled bulbs in the past. They are super bright and have a blue hue to them. They look realy cool also. But like scammer said they do not illuminate the road real good. With these bulbs the first time you drive at night in the rain you will wish for your old bulbs. I am running silverstar's and they are awsome driving at night. But if you want a blueish look go with a xenon gas filled bulb. Any Pep Boys or Autozone will have them. But in my opinion......Silverstar for the win.

i bought mine off of ebay.. i cant remember but paid around 60 with shipping... but i think its worth it :) especially if you go with yellow fogs (for rain, snow etc), as it was said about blue light is not very good in rain, too much reflection, but yellow light doesnt reflect in water drops, even in the worst rain at night, you can still perfectly everything :)

Hella makes a really good blueish light that is way brighter than stock. I found mine at Advanced Auto Parts.

They are called HB2 9003
High Performance Xenon Blue D.O.T Compliant
They are 60/55W
Part Number H83140272
That's what I used untill I got HID's.
