I ordered those bulbs. $15 for shipping WTF!

Anyways, they were $27.99 US shipped, so makes it $35 CDN. Not bad. Still cheaper than a set of Silverstars.

To get some money back,I'll return my tow rope tomorrow and that will pay for the lights. woot!

Silverstars are a rip off! Theyre like $50!

Get HID's man, If you have to have halogen, get silverstars but an HID kit is about the same price and its much better

All those colored halogen bulbs do is make the light output dimmer. It looks brighter, but its really not. Theyre a rip off even at $15

lol..I'm not concerned about visibility with the 'hyper blue' or whatever bulbs, because the yellow fogs make up for any reflection the blue lights put out.

I'm sick of spending money on silverstars every few months because they always burn out on me. Never had problems with OEM, Eurolite or other aftermarket lights, just Silverstars.

believe me from experience...

colored halogens DO NOT put out the proper amount of usable light. Sure...lookin' at 'em in the housings they're bright...but driving them w/o any street lights on the back country roads, you'll be begging for more light.

it's not the reflection of the color against the road that's the problem....it's the fact that halogens + color = less usable light output...like i said...i went though like 6 sets of bulbs trying to find a good one(euro dezigns, silverstar, eurolite, luminics, i can't name the others).

No not your truck. Trevor's silver truck on the left in the 2nd pic. However you both have the look I want. Blue headlights & yellow fogs.

I'llw ait for these bulbs to show up and I'll see how they are. They may totally suck, but they were cheap enough to experiment with.
