Default after market GP or stock?


well? I figured it'* aftermarket but, I wonder can they come out the factory w/ the hood on it like the GA'*?

Oh, and for those who are late up on things like myself, Sylvania is now sell'n fog lights (880 bulbs) now on partsforyourcar.com I order some 885'* tho (50watt) bulbs from the local Advanced Auto place, these ****'* cost as much as the silver stars high or low beams. I paid a liitle over 40 for both, thier supposed to be in this friday.

I couldn't really see Gm selling those rims from the factory, but I wouldn't be surpised if down the line they start marketing a hood like that from the factory. I think that hood looks pretty sexy, those louvers on the scoops are cool, never seen anything like that before.

BTW - I thouht that the 880'* and 9134(or whatever) were supposed to be less than the 9005'* and 9006'*... I was going to pick up a pair of H3'* and the parking lamp size this weekend, but if its going to be over $80 I'm going to have to wait for another paycheck...

I know the rims aren't, but na 880 are like 27-38 watts? they cost the same as the head lights cause they use the same lighting technology I guess?

It'* the optical coating Sylvania puts on them. That'* how they produce the whiter light. This isn't the typical cheap blue coating on the knock-off bulbs, this is an actual AR optical coating. That'* why they ain't cheap.

Lasers and optics. The lenses/mirrors I buy at work for various wavelengths would normally be very inexpensive, but the optical coatings add the cost.
