my 9006 SS'* were in my Alero, then now in my Bonneville, in the Alero, the DRLs were a different bulb, in the bonneville its the same bulb, still going, but i would consider PIAA next time, the brightness was much better in the Alero, the glass headlights on the Bville tend to filter the light more so.

I got silverstar lows for my bonnie because of this web site! What the hell are PIAA? Maybe I'll get high beams of these. I'm very happy with my silverstars. Makes me chuckle every time somebody flashes me cause they think I have my high beams on. Reminds me of driving a truck.
