Default Silverstars- any other options?

hey guys, my wife'* bonny has silverstars, but one just burned out. considering what they cost, has anyone tried the other lights at the typical stores? Any cheaper alternatives that are still decent? this will be the second one i've replaced- and they lasted quite a while, its just not worth that much money to me anymore...

Thanks

jeff

Philips Hi Visibility bulbs, after some comparisons, they were the best bulbs i had tried in my car, including generic sylvania, SS, and the Philips.

I've been trying out the wagner night hawks and so far they've held up for 2 years, not as bright as silverstars but better than stock imo?

if all you want is a light that will give you more light on the low beam side
try putting a 9005 bulb in the low beam side, i did this over a year ago and
my car lights up the road alot better then it did with the stock 9006 low beam bulb.
here is a site that tells you how to modify the 9005 light to fit in the low beam side.
high beam light blub in the low beam side, 10 more watts of power and 70% more lumens.

i put a cheap($8.00) GE 9005 light in my left side low beam(9006) side and it put out way more light than the Sylvania SilverStar(9006) low beam light i had in the right side.
hope this helps you see at night, i know i do now.
i know i would never go back to the stock low beam(9006) lights.
