Silverstars installed!!!

Got my Silverstars in Friday night. They look pretty nice, definitely an improvement over the factory crap.

Did NOT have to remove the bumper... pulling the airbox and loosening the washer bottle afforded me enough room to do the swap. Passenger side is a cinch... driver's side low beam takes a little concentration but it can be done, even with my short, stubby hands.

Anyway, will try to get some pics up tonite...

Nice...
Where did you get them from? Still can't seem to find them around here.

Ordered them from Liteswap...

They're also available (and actually mine may have come from) suvlights.com... might try them... price per bulb is cheaper (don't know about total cost after shipping, etc)...

Are you talking about Sylvania SilverStars or Osram SilverStars? I have the Sylvania installed and I don't think it's quite noticeably brighter. Still have to turn on my highbeam often for night-time highway driving. Maybe it's because the lowbeam is aimed too low like one other post said...

I'm talking about Sylvania as well...

No, they're not terribly brighter than stock... probably not going to get a great increase in output unless you increase the wattage...

However, they are noticeably whiter. No, I don't think they really look like HIDs, but they are definitely better...
