Streetglow Hyper-White headlights are really good i have been running them for 2 years now and they are really white when shining on objects and have a nice tint of blue when far away. Nokya also makes pretty good looking ones that have the same kind of effect of HIDs (the color) both are not too expensive and are good looking

It seems that in the 00+ cars that the silverstars don't like to be installed in them. I do have them in a few vehicles and love them, but for you that is not an option.

Some members on my Malibu forum are talking about using APC hyperwhites, another mentioned these 2 linked below, but also said that those are the only good eurolites, the others offered are garbage

http://www.cardomain.com/item/EUR9006SB

Some have even mentioned nokya stage II arctic white.

there is also a post that may be of interest to a few people located here http://malibuclub.ca/forum/viewtopic...highlight=9005

Basically it shows you how to mod a 9005 high beam bulb to be installed in the location of the 9006 low beams, that will give you an extra 10 watts of light. Just remember of the legality of it( running higher that OEM wattage). I didn't remember if it was posted on here, but figured I would post it now in case it wasn't.
