Again.. be careful that they won't melt your plastic lens.. I only turn them on when I know I will be in constant motion.. back roads, highways and such where there'* enough air to help cool it down and not in rush hour..

Or switch to the Cyber-white'* for CHEAP, and swap in 100W H3'* to replace the 55'* that come with them. Get the Cyber-White Navigators at Wal-Mart for cheap. They're slightly smaller in diameter, so you get improved airflow to the lower part of the radiator.

I can blind a dead fish laying on the road, but the aim is good, so I don't get flashed by oncoming cars.

My normal lows are XtraVisions I believe. As you can see, they produce the same light (maybe a little more) side by side with SS'*. They won't glare as much on Ice, Snow, wet roads either, they're not as yellow as std bulbs, but they're enough to keep white surfaces lit up.

And def replace those driving light housings with one of the aforementioned choices. BIGGEST safety thing I could've done. Much more important then headlamp bulbs IMO.

Advance Auto is having a sale on Silver Stars. I took the plunge..I think they were $26 a pair. Opted for high and low'*. Ed hooked me up at like $20 a pair..what a guy!

I'm loving them so far. It was tough to stop driving and come back in the house. Now I need to upgrade the fogs. Anyone know which upgrades to go with for 95 SSEi? Oh..one of my fogs is cracked..so it'* a good time for replacements. Think I heard hellas
