so I have silver star low beams. I dug out the receipt and it says 02/01/04. They blew out on thurs night. That's not even 3 months. Fortunately, I payed under $20 for the set.

not really dude, hid's are liek 400+ if you're lucky

he said he got the silverstars for $20 bucks a set, let's say they blow out 5 times, that's just $100 bucks, big difference.

I do agree though, HID is the way to go, but not everyone can afford them.

one of my hid retros cost me 250, so its not too much, plus i dotn think spending 100 on bulbs a year is a good investment, hid will last you longer then the car

I just put the stock ones back in. Price = $free.

They do have a warranty, take em back to where you bought em. = FREE I've had PIAA, Eurolite, Euro Dezigns and Silverstars all for over a year before I changed em and they never blew. The thing that most people forget is that the slightest scratch or fingerprint on the bulb will drastically reduce the life of the bulb. Hid won't last any loner if you put finger prints or a scratch on the bulb either. Just my 2 cents.

My buddy has had 3 sets of Silverstars too... I told him to get PIAA Extreme White... I've had them for more than 14 months, and they're still going strong....

HID's... they look real nice but I just can't decide on who to go with...or were to get them

all aftermarket bulbs suck... even PIAAs... I've heard bulbs last anywhere from 1 month to 2.5 years.
Very very true. I was able to find a shop that let me warranty Eurolite 55w bulbs and they kept blowing.

The fake "HID" bulbs suck because the ones that run higher wattage fry your wiring harness. The lower wattage ones just look bad and you might as well run stock. Save up for HIDs guys. You won't go back. :yes:

BTW, around here you can buy just 1 silverstar for like 14 bucks so you can replace them at less cost. I have had many different type and most do suck. I am hoping that these will last a while.

I must admit, they look a hell of alot better then many of the blueish coated bulbs. The silverstars have an amazing amount of white light output with just a hint of purpulish. They don't seem to be a dimmed by the coating as many other aftermarket bulbs.
