Heh, I just replaced all my lights with silverstars, weee!

Total Cost: 123.00

Can't wait to try them tonight, i'll take some pics for you guys... The people at my auto parts store thought i was nutty putting 6 silverstars in my car, then i told them about my little modification to my fog lights that keeps them on while my highs are on.

So that brings it to a total of 10 lights at the front of my car, 2 highs, 2 lows, 2 fogs, and 4 angel eyes.

I had silverstars. I've had cool blues. I have PIAA's now. Good Stuff. I love it when you are a red light with yoru lights on and cars pass perpendicular to u and its so easy to tell how much whiter and brghter ur headlights look on a car as it passes compared to the car next to you.

Cheers!

Had the SilverStars (low beams) but they burned within 12 months. That seems to be the expected life as per the Sylvania website – here is the FAQ "What is the life expectancy of SilverStar? The life expectancy of a SilverStar halogen light source is dependent on the driver’s use of the lights, which vary by season, time of day and number of miles driven. We estimate the SilverStar halogen lights to have a life span of up to one year under average driving conditions." There has to be other options out there – I just have not researched them.
