I would be interested in getting them, but where. I have seen silerstars blue but I have read in BC SS white are better...

Sylvania makes the Cool Blues and the Silver Stars. SS are white light. Any Autozone, Walmart, etc. Or you can order them online.

Sorry....location location location.

I believe, if old memory serves me well, that Canadian Tire sells them. 9005 for the high beams, 9006 for the lows.

I have the SS lows, and Cool Blue highs. I like the combination. I agree with Ken, as far as safety (visibility) is concerned, this is a top 5 mod. Overall, definitely a top 10.

I won't order them on the internet, but some do. If you can't get them locally, you may not have another option. Personal preference.

yup a top 10, also aftermarket driving lights too, angle eyes are WAY brighter than stock, even more than the headlights. For Xmas I got my Old man some Silver stars, 9003 same bulb for highs and lows, look good and good improvement. Also got him his first Intake kit ever for his Suzuki Grand Vitara. Has a nice growl to it now. He loves it. Good gifts huh. I asked for headers but didn't get em.

As for ordering bulbs I really wouldn't worry, I try to buy them locally if I can but had to order some SilverStar H-3'* for the angle eye replacement cause nobdy in Chicago land had them, couldn't beleive it. Also order chrome looking amber 3157 for my clear corners. Looks great how they reflect all clear. Going to clear the rear too come spring, I'll try MOS'* light mist of silver spray paint on the amber bulb next time.

I've won auctions on eBay with bulbs. Sometime this works out, but most of the time they don't pack 'em well and they get broke. I use http://www.partsamerica.com/ a lot because I can order them online cheaper and then pick them up local, best of both worlds. You can find anything you need for your car on the internet someplace, if you look long enough.
