What kind of Head lights?

Hey just curious what everybody is shining at night? You know, your head lights, but anyway.. I've always like the Silverstars, I know alot of people have them, sometimes I can see the difference, but most of the time they look the same, maybe I should clean my head light lense..

I've got 50k miles on the stockers... I will probably replace them with an HID kit off ebay.

Silverstars and I noticed an enormous difference from stock. Apparently so do other drivers who flash me. I always think they're advising me of an upcoming speedtrap but there are never any cops and since this started when I got Silverstars.....

I'm running silverstars too and I'm not happy with them, they are only slightly brighter and wasn't worth the 40 bucks.

I agree with you but when I got my 93 man my OEM bulbs were so yellow...the silverstars were good till I started seeing those blueish lights....Then I got Nokya Stage 2s Arctic White, They are blue and they are iight for where I am, but if your out in the boondocks stay with silverstar b/c blue filters out some of your light...Your also gonna need a new harness which are plug and play and are about 30 bucks, but it saves your stock harness from getting fried.I think pretty soon I'm gonna try out some of those purpleish lights that resemble HID alot more

Heres my nokyas
