Just a FYi, the SS U are the same as the SS far as brightness, they may be a little different color temp but thats about it.

All they did on the New Ultras is fix the problem with them burning out so fast.

if you are going to get silverstars, i would say get the ultras..just like ryan said...they don't have the premature failure problem.

if the ultras are more reliable, wouldn't they make more sense than the originals?

880 fog lights in the silverstars
They are garbage. I went through 3 set on my GTP in two years. I finally switched back to stock. As far as I know it was a common problem with the 880s.
