If you can spare the $140 then get the HID lights and never look back.

I have the new Silverstar Ultras. I like them and have had the regular silverstars and these are supposedly brighter and are a whiter light than the normal silverstars, but they are a few bucks more expensive than the normal silverstars.

I've got Luminics Titaniums.....I like them....ALOT....but you will have to run a upgraded harness, 140w! My right side plug has melted! My friends call them ********** lights cuz they're bright. I'm running one single stock 9007 from a '98 Continental right now. The Luminic titaniums are expensive from Luminic, I got mine from ebay for $30. Upgrade harnesses are around $20 and Luminics is the brand.
