wilwren, Those are some great looking pics. Think I am going to have to get me some Silver stars. With all the lousy weather we get here in the winter time I need an edge.

Too damn hard to tell anything that way. Differences in cameras, ambient light outside, etc. I could get a pic of my lights on a wall, though. That might work.

I finally picked up a pair of Silver Stars last weekend at Wal-Mart ($37.50 for the pair). I installed the left one last night. I can confirm what most of you have said about the Silver Stars. They are MUCH whiter and brighter than the stock bulbs. I have to wait for the weekend to install the right bulb because it'* easier to get at if I remove the battery.

wilwren, You are definately correct. The Silver Stars are much whiter and brighter. Just installed the silver stars for the low beams. They didn't have the ones for the hi-beams so I Installed the Cool Blues. Found a good price on them too. Will have to show them to Jim and Pete tomorrow.

Can't wait to see them! We'll compare them to my Hyper & Plasma Whites to see the difference. I like mine a lot but I would rather have SilverStars.

Yeah, there pretty cool. The silver stars are reg $19.98ea but were marked down to 17.77 ea. The cool blues were 14.88ea. After I put the cool blues in found another store that that had the silver stars for the hi beams same price 17.77ea. I think they said they sold them in pairs also. 35.00 for the pair I guess.

Are the foggie brackets on SE'* the same as SSEi? My bumper is kinda messed up around one, and i don't wanna have to do too much work.... I'm definetly getting silverstars soon. The high beams i got now are amazing, and just light everything in sight perfect and evenly.
