Eh.. after having HID's for almost a year, I'm over them. They look cool, and I did have them aimed down so as to not get flashed, but then the light sucked. I'll be staying with silverstars once I swap them out soon.

Silverstar Ultras

I got mine on amazon.com, ended up buying 3 sets for all the vehicles.

How much do you like them? I know you must like them a little bit because you bought a set for 3 vehicles.

I love them, much better than the old ones that were in there. Helps a lot when watching for deer.

If you go Silverstars get them on Amazon, they're 1/2 off there. Go with 9007 Ultras for the heads and 9005 Ultras for the fogs. For the 9005s you have to trim a little corner of one of the tabs, its super easy.

Never been that impressed with the silverstars. They fade too quick. Now I have HIDs, can't imagine being without them. Better light even than my wife's factory projectors. love it. Oh, and I'm lower than most here too, and yes, everything blinds me.
