Default got my silverstars and cyberwhites..

I put Silverstar Low and High'* in my car, and cyber white fog lights. The fog lights made a huge difference. The silverstars on the other hand, only the left side has the blue tint to it, and the other side doesnt. Is this because the one with the blue tint is a new headlight assembly, and the other one, is the original headlight assembly? Im kinda dissapointed that one only looks blue and bright as he**. Also, the other one is like steamed up inside, and is all pitted and stuff.

Yeah, could be a bad bulb, or just that headlight assembly you're talking about that'* pitted and has condensation in it makes it look like the light is not as bright I'd take that headlight assembly apart and dry it out and reseal it with some clear RTV, and make sure no moisture can get in. Also make sure you don't touch the glass of the bulbs.

Don't think it'* the bulb. I've seen quite a few cars with the headlight assey being pitted and condensation on the inside.

Im gonna switch bulbs today, and see if its the bullb or not. Its probably the headlight assembly. Its all cloudy, has condensation in it, and it pitted, where my other headlight is brand new, and clean due to "the accident". But shouldn't they both be blue? not just the one? or is the old headlight assembly so dirty, it doesnt show the blue?

I'd say it is the assembly.... I took a rock or something in my 91 a few years ago and bought a new assembly. It looked so much better then the old assembly on the other side. I was going to go out and buy a new assembly for the old side, but I got whacked in a car accident and I got a new one out of the deal anyways.

Its the bulb. I switched bulbs and now the old assembly looks blue and better.

I also made my side markers clear today. It looks real good except for the one I had to glue together, because i accidently busted it. Busted it in half, but i got some good glue, and you cant see it unless your up close. I found new side markers for like $18, so i dont know if i should buy a new one. I should of did it the proper way.
