my head light really suck. ive tried cleaning them with chrome polish two times and it didnt help much but the lens is clear now. im starting to think i just have cheap bulbs. i want some really bright ones. they dont have to be anything special like blue or white ones. i just want to be able to see the road at night.

while we are talking about lights i was thinking about getting some fog lights also. whoever had the car before me put some ugly yellow ones. he wired a switch into the dash for them. could i just cut into the power for the stock fog lights and run them off of that. so that i dont have a seperate switch. would i be able to use the stock foglights and this other set running off the stock wiring?

I just did some research on the web here....I haven't heard ANYTHING bad about the silverstars. I'm gonna break down and put some on my 1g. I've already done the Hella conversion kit, so it'll just be a simple swap. I'll let you konw how it goes.

whatever your current light setup is if you relay them you will get A HUGE increase in lighting output. the entire setup is usually only about 30 bucks to relay 2 lights.

hell. you could even relay your fogs seperatly and have lots of bright lights

You can get Silverstars at Pep Boys. You can also order them online at tons of places. Just google search for Sylvania Silverstars retailers.

Yup, much better than my previous bulbs. I had also been running the over-wattage ones and they just kept burning out in a few months. So I got a set of the Silverstars at Wal-Mart. They were much cheaper there than Pep-Boys.

<--- Another satisfied Silverstar owner. But are they worth $40? I'm not sure it's a $40 improvement. But there's nothing cheaper that works as good.
