    Default whos got sylvania silverstar lights

    i know i read someone in here had installed some of those sylvania silverstar headlights. i went out for some new bulbs and saw them and was supprised at the cost. are they worth it? did they make a big differance? and does anyone make "white" bulbs that would match for the fog lights?

    That was me. I paid $40 for them. I think they were worth it. I am very happy with them.

    Well you have one yay and one nay...

    I have them, but don't see any major difference from the 5 year old GEs I removed... They are a little whiter, but IMHO not worth the extra price.

    BTW I have new lenses in my bird.

    i have them to, and i'v also had every other type of new improved headlight and i think these make the only, if any difference. everything else did nothing

    I also bought them foe $40 and installed them. I noticed only a slight difference, just a little brighter. I guess it was worth them extra $ for them, to gain a few more lumens...

    I realize you've already made a decision, but i'd figure i'd chime in with my perspective. I bought the silverstars myself thinking that the would be a drastic improvement, but ended up realizing they were pretty much the same output as my old ones. I ended up buying some $16 "ricer" hyper bright bulbs from napa and they have been absolutly awesome (it also helps that my headlight enclosures have been replaced). But if you're looking for a really bright white light from you headlight swing buy a napa in you area if you have one and take a look see in their "tuner" section. I think you'll be satified with them!

    My buddy blu84302 has them. They are a little nicer, but his are the old sealed beam lights. Honestly I don't think they are worth it.

    I like them because they give the look of a stock bulb and are brighter than halogen
