Remember, there is a reason why cars have separate high beam and low beams. SO YOU DONT BLIND THE **** OUT OF OTHER DRIVERS.

Its the beam pattern that blinds drivers, not necessarily the bulb itself.

They are brighter, but I havent driven the car at night to know just how much. I could take a pic but I dont know if it would do any justice. I did it just to see if i could. I need to get a matching pair of 9005 silverstars now.

right on-
ya- pics of light don't really prove the full effect sometimes. I would think that it would look pretty good though.
so I'm suprised with all the LEDS you have- you don't have LED side markers?
I've had them for about 2 years now, and they are great- good for visability too.
Not to mention they look sick....

Default Bright Lights...

Something else that you might want to consider doing is installing a relay next to your headlight. The wires that run from the dash to the bulb it self are quite thin. Put a relay on the wire pair that controld the bulb, ground one side of the bulb, and run a continious fused "hot line" from the battery (do this to both sides so one is not brighter than the other, if you have an O Rilley'* near by, they sell a relay that have dual output'* which is great for this). One thing...If you have the "Lamp Monitor" on you dash, the relays do not pull the same amount of power as a 65 watt bulb, thus making the lamp monitor activate. If you do this a 65 watt bulb pulls 4.5 A @ 14.5v (65w/14.5v=4.482A) x 2 = a 15A fuse, preferably 20A. Use good wiring
