the 9006'* or the 9005'*? is there any history on the head lights not being sealed properly in the 00+? that strikes me as odd

I've had Silverstars in my high beams since they first came out, and no problems. I wonder if Sylvania is having quality issues with them. Either way it seems that there is a good reason to steer clear of them.

Not sure if its a voltage issue....

But I think most of the 96 or 97+ have the DRL'*...

I think the 95-99NA'd and 96-99 used the 125 amp alt... I think if memory serves they put out 13.5 volts roughly...

My friends car 99 Malibu had the newer style Delphi alternator and it puts out 14.5-14.6 all of the time... More juice...

My 91 does right on the money for 14v, the 95 cold starts at 14.0-14.5 and later drops to 13.5....

Oh well changes...
