okay, so i'm considering to buy some light bulbs for my car. i've heard of silverstars but i think they are just over-rated. i'm more into the blue tint look for my car. so can you guys recommend me to any brand out there?

Silverstars, just get them you won't be sorry. If you want the blue tint then get the Cool Blue but many people believe it's too ricer. To each thier own.

sylvania silverstars have the blue tint, osram silverstars are pure white.

believe it or not, blue tints give off lesser light displacement than ones w/o it. that's why I ordered osrams.

I'm a huge advocate of HIDs - here's why:

-10-20X the life
-3X the light output
-Less power consumption
-Better light color, resulting in decreased eye fatigue
-Less heat
-Obvious visual appeal

The only issue is that you really need a projector setup (which CAN be costly) if you're going to properly convert to HIDs. Have no fear, though, we can get you anything in the way of HID lighting needs

If you want a blue tint...then look at spending money in HID's. Very shortly I'll be upgrading my ZKW's to HID output, 5000k in the headlights, and 7500k in the fog lights. Different K ratings give you different colors.

Deloriant I didn't know you had zkw's. I may be getting some as well but I may just go for the straight zkws with hid. let me know if the hids make a big difference. yes, i've seen the pictures but I want your opinion. That is if you get them before me.
