My personal preference is a combination. All Sylvanias.

Low beams are Silver Stars, High beams are Cool Blues. For poor weather visibility and no yellow tinge, they work far better than stock bulbs.

These lamps are 100% street legal.

Please don't say "APC". I just ate.

I can't stand a company that calls themselves "American Products Company" and all their crap is made in China for ricers.

Sorry. Pet peeve. Those stickers are worse than a 2 foot aluminum wing on a civic.

The best ones are HID capsules with the ballast and starter - CATZ makes a good system.

I'll take a night pic tonight for you. You can really see the difference between the halogen fogs and the SilverStar low beams
