There's no comparison between stock and silverstars. They are legal (as far as I know) and way brighter. As for foglights, I'm not sure, but I know they make them for your headlights. all it is is a bulb. Looks just like your stock ones, but maybe a different color. Simple install.

9007 fits the headlights and 9005 can be forced in to fit the fog lights. Not even really forced in, but you have to insert it at a slight angel to get it in.

I have silverstars for tmy fogs and they illumnate clearer then the headlights.

Yeah I just got them today, and drove with them tonight in the rain. The light is alot whiter, and a lil brighter too. You can really tell the difference when you are driving in a neighborhood, when you can see where the light is hitting things. They are a good investment.

Yes there are, but I have never seen any. They are 9145st.

Just buy the 9005st and they will work.

Silver stars are good but StreetGlow makes some goos ones that will be birghter longer than the silverstars, But if u want the ultimate lights go with the PIAA 9007 hyper white there about 85-110$ whereever u buy them, worth the money nothing better than piaa

One of my friends works (or did) at a place that sold them. He told me not to buy them cuz they were the biggest POS. He said they burn out after about 6 months. Now, he uses Silver Star and is happy
