Hahahahahaha gotcha all to spend money!

I have a set of the 35w in the Regal. Stock housing (which we all know is illegal and should throw glare). and they look really good. Work great. As always you need to consider how your car locks and unlocks. If the lights flash, disable the flash to protect your ballasts from burning up.

For less than silverstars, you have more light with a full HID kit. How is that wrong?

One thing some guys have found is that the connector where they plug into your old headlgiht connector is usually wired backwards and you pull the pins out, reverse them (if needed) and are all set. I plugged mine in straight up and they worked great.

I wouldn't reccomend a 55w, 35w is ok if the headlights are aimed properly

Frank, could you please explain why the 35w would not be as good as the 55w in regular housing? confused....

He is saying go with the 35w in a stock housing. 55w'* will be too bright and and throw a real bad glare.

I have 35w in the Pearl and it is plenty good

yah a 55w would be ok for projectors since the light is focused and there is a cut off shield, 35w is better for the reflectors since the light pattern is a little different and they are brighter
