Hey everyone.

Just had a headlight burn out on me and I was thinking that I would like to upgrade to something that is alot brighter and not the standard yellowish tint that comes with most stock headlight bulbs. I'm not familiar with brands or numbers as I am very new at this. From my research so far, people seem to like the Silverstar Ultra Brights. What should I get?

Thanks,

-Justin

they are supposed to be much brighter from the basic silvanias. Only problem is that they dont last nearly as long, one year if your lucky.

no that not a retrofit. That just using a different bulb

I can get new hid kits for you so PM me. But since you want to burn your amazon credit. I gave you the link for the bulbs. A basic retrofit with healdights is around the 500 range.

retrofit = Me putting this inside of your headlights


Then they look like this




and cut off is like this

If you don't retro get the 9012.... The trimming takes 30 seconds and they put out much more usable light. Its not a white look though but slightly cooler than stock. If you stay halogen and are interested in safety and longevity that's your best bet for 40$.

personnaly, I love my PIAA Intense White bulbs. They do great job, very bright and best bang for the buck. IF you don't mind about puting 500$ on lights.. maybe you should just change the bulb.


My 2 cent!

When you say they are slightly cooler than stock, what do you mean, because 9012 here is off the charts blue. Which in my opinion would be fine.

They are noticeably whiter... but similar to stock. Not as white as a Silverstar Ultra (4100k) but they last 3-4x as long . Their around 3700k I believe and stock is about 3300k don't quote me... but noticeably more usable light just not as fashionable. Illuminates farther down the road.

Oh your misinterpreting.. 9012 is not the color temp its the bulb name. I didn't get what you meant initially.
