Got 'er done! Looks GREAT.
In fact, I was so impressed by everyone's GET SILVANIA SILVERSTARS attitude, that I foolishly purchased 3 pairs - the fogs I installed, and the headlamps and high beams are pending.
I opened up my trunk and... lo and behold, I saw Sylvania on the back ends of the low and high beams already!
Which leads me to another question...
I put in the silverstars in the fogs, which are MUCH nicer. But now the lows and highs look just a TAD off, but they're still much whiter than stock. Could this be from age (the car is a used one, and the previous owner apparently had sylvania somethings put in).
So I was wondering... could anyone identify what kind of Sylvanias are in my car?
I haven't pulled the lamps out, so I don't know if there's a colored ring to indicate (silver = silverstar, blue = cool blue, red = Xtra) what it is, but I did notice that the bases were a BEIGE color instead of the silverstar black.
Anyone got a clue as to what these might be? I went to the Sylvania site, and even the standards and long lifes have black bases. What Sylvania light has a beige base?
I don't want to replace the functional lights until I know that my silverstars will be better... And if those are already silverstars (albeit older and dimmer) I might as well use them to their useful end, right?
