I have Sylvania Silverstars. They are pretty bright. I am looking for something a little brighter as well.

Will the H7's fit the stock headlights (connectors) or do you need to modfiy them. Also, where do you get the H7's.

Raybrig bulbs are the brightest and longest lasting headlights ont the market. I've had them on my car for 1 year and 2 months and still burning bright. As for turn signals, use Polarg. Both are a little pricy, but it's well worth it.

J-Dawg, the STOCK headlight assemblies use 9004 (H4) bulbs, and ONLY those bulbs. The best temperature of light is about 5200 degrees. The stock Bulb wattage is 55watts. Find a bulb within those ranges. The silverstars and the PIAA bulbs do the best job at working within those ranges. Try not to get a bulb that is too far over the stock 55 wattage or you *may* burn up harnesses. I've been using 80watt bulbs in my aftermarket headlights for many months now without any harness issues.

the stock bulb is NOT a 9004! it's a 9003. 9004 has a plastic bottom that the harness plugs into. the 9003 looks similar, but the bottom just has the basic 3 tabs that the harness slips over. now, the stock harness may fit on the 9004 bulb, but 9004 is NOT stock.
