I need brighter lights and one of my fogs are actually blown too so I need a whole new set of front bulbs besides the corners. I have a 95 318i. I want something really bright but hopefully not too expensive. How are the Sylvania Silverstar or Cool Blues? I've been looking around for the type of bulbs I need and I recall seeing H11 for fogs and headlights then I saw 9005 for highbeam and 9006 for lowbeam. What are the types I can use? Thanks.

Sylvania Silverstar even thought they are the most expensive aren't the best. I use some high quality aftermarket cool blues, and my bro and my mom both used to have the sylvania sylverstar, my bro switched to the same one I got, and my mom just asked me to get her some too. If you are interested in buying the same ones i use I'll be more than glad to give you the contact info of the person I got mine from.

Sylvania Silverstar are great.... this is funny... a few months ago everyone was saying that PIAAs sucked, and to get Sylvania Silverstar .... lol...

i like my silverstarts a lot over my older yellow bulbs that were actually made by sylvania.
