Default I'm dissapointed with silverstars

I bought the 9005 silverstars for my brights today, and i'm disappointed. They're whiter, but not much brighter. i don't know if i can return them now or not...

I have the SS lows, but stuck with Cool Blues for the highs. Kennlee did the same. We're quite happy with them, and Cool Blues are cheaper.

Then do the foglight override so they stay on with the brights

Everytime i've seen them in 92-95 housings they didn't wow me, especially for $40 wowage.

Driving lights are a better investment, and they start at the same price.
