Has anyone tried the Silverstar 880ST for their stock fog lamps yet?

I've be pondering between:

1) leaving them stock
2) Upgrading them to 880ST for brighter light
3) Trying to fit in those 'angel eyes'

I'm trying to figure out which of these is going to give me enough of an increase. I've already learned my lesson on my last bonneville...stuffing the higher wattage 893'* only works for a while, before the plastic lens starts to deteriorate from the extra heat. So that choice is out.

Are the 880ST'* enought of an increase to justify the cost?

I know there are some members on here that have got them/ordered them. Cant remember their names thoug. I would probably just install the angel eye foglights.

How bad is the install for the Angeleyes? Is it a 'Never go back' choice, because you end up cutting the sh*t out of the existing fog lamp brackets and existing wiring?

It'* not that hard at all to install the Angle Eye'*, On the +00 you take out the stock bracket and just use the new one suplied. Only need to drill 2 hole in the angle eye braket and each side. As for going back to stock. The first time you turn them on at night you won't want to go stock again. But yes you can swap them back with out much trouble, you do have to cut off the stock plug.

I would recomend the angle eyes just on the fact of way more light output than the stock 880. I'm sure the silverstars are slightly brighter but aftermarket 55w bulbs will be WAY brighter, ie. angle eyes, blazertechs, naviagators.

Oh ya the reason why I posted here. I just received my siverstar H-3 bulbs for my Angle eyes, the stock bulb is way bright, I just want the color to match my SS headlights. There going in this weekend, let you know the difference. I choose this route over getting the 880ST'* and calling it a day. No regrets either very happy with the light output, and the EYE just looks so nice!
