I got Silverstar Ultras a month or two ago and love them. They work much better than the stock ones.

I got the Ultras and have to agree with them. They are awesome.

If you go with a higher wattage than stock get a wiring harness because the stock one will melt.

I had to re aim mine. Kept getting flashed, I would always be nice and show them that in fact, they do get brighter by flashing back. And then I flashed a sheriff....

And then he flashed you back with his red and blues.

I like them. They seem to dim a lot over time though, more than other halogens.

i currently have these, and the light output is great!

only reason i have them is because one of my HID bulbs burnt out. so until i feel like ordering some new ones from ebay, i will run the silverstars.

Had ultras in both fog and headlights. Went HID in both now and there is absolutely no comparing the two-specially on high beam. I didn't have to re-aim the headlights on either setup and have never been flashed, fwiw.
