Default Cool Blues

Well after 2 1/2 years my Cool Blues finally blew. 2 weeks ago one went then the other one went today. I went to Canadian Tire today and they've stopped carrying them. I couldn't even find 1 of the #9006 so the hubby treated me to the SS.
I find the SStars brighter but the CB'* were whiter. Hope i have better luck then some of you guys did...

Hope you have good luck with them too... It seems that the 92-95 Bonnevilles have done really well with the lamp assemblies.... I believe that the 87-91'* would too...

But it seems that the 96-05 Bonnies have a hard time keeping the bulbs alive for a long period of time...

Let us know how you like them for the longrun...

I have had a set of the SS bulbs in the 95 for 2 years... and the 91 has had Cool Blues longer than that

I have had the same set of SS in my car (put them in 2 weeks after I bought her) and that was back in June of '03

I haven't looked for a few weeks, but I'm pretty sure Wally World still sells cool blues here. Hopefully you are talking about the same ones. Are there two kinds of cool blues?

This site has the bulbs that I see in Wal-Mart. How many do you need?

Yeah...I agree...Wally had cool blues last time I was there as well.

SS owner in a 97 for year and a half. Thpppttt to the negative thoughts. (I think people were pawing the bulbs)

Deb...if you can't get them ... holler..I think Wally still has them here.

My first set of Silverstars lasted me 1 yr and 1 month for the right, and 1 year and 2 months for the left. Trying to be prepared, as my current set was approaching a year old, I bought a new set. That was almost a year ago now. Maybe they're improved them, or having a spare set keeps them going longer.

I've had my SS'* infor almost 2 years and no problems yet

The Xtra visions are a good alternative also.
