For some reason (it may be excessive vibration), the 880 SilverStar capsules do not last on the 00+ Bonnevilles. I've read somewhere that Sylvania has stated the SilverStar line of lamps do not have as long a service life as conventional. I've gone back to the conventional 880'*. The other alternative is to do a wholesale replacement of the fog light assemblies with aftermarket fog lights. There are members here at BC that have converted to aftermarket with excellent results. Perhaps they will chime in a little later on.

I haven't done it yet but it seems like the common upgrade is either the Hella angel eyes or the Cyberwhite navigators with the He bulb conversion.

The 880st'* don't last in any of the stock fog lights. I've lost count as to how many I've been through
