Default Silverstar went out

Silverstar is out on one of my fog lights. What do ya think, get another silverstar, or go for different bulbs all together?

BTW, they lasted me about 6 months....

John, alot of people have had that same complaint. Go to Wal-Mart and get the cyber-white navigators. The lamp assembly and reflector are much better than stock, and they come 55 watts. Easily upgradable to 100W (that'* what I'm running now).

I've had Sylvania Xtra Vision in other cars, and i've seen articles that mention why they're better then Sylvania SS. Much cheaper too.

They do not reflect off of snow and rain like a whiter/bluer bulb does, they light it up as desired
