Don't change the color of the headlamps..you're asking for trouble...

Tails are fine tho...I suggest the lower intensity Cool Blues for the high beams and LIGHT EM UP bro

Maybe I better put my DOT seal of approval in my glove box.

Inside any Cool Blue or SilverStar packaging (btw SS packing is uber kewl!!) it should have a tiny folded up blue piece of paper, it insures the owner that the light is brighter then any stock yellow bulb but is street legal. Its your defense if ever questioned. Did you get your bulbs from a retail store or from somewhere else?

Who makes the "Cool Blue" and "Silverstar"?
Are these something I can pick up at Canadian Tire, or am I going to have to goto a rice store?

nice. they're like $50 a pair. well, plus or minus.
i have both low and high beam silverstars. the lows are much brighter, and the highs compare to the Xenons (lows) in Escalades, Audis, Bimmers, etc. pretty good investment.

anyway i still need highs so ill probably go to canadian tire and pick some up. i dont want to spen 50 bucks but at least they'll match. have you seen the little LEDs that go inside the headlight housing? those are pretty cool i think.

Jim is correct. Dark blue for the Silverstars, Light blue paper for the Cool blues.
