I used to love SilverStars, until I discovered the HIRs we currently have in our Vibes. They are only available for #9005 and #9006 bulbs though. Another great line of bulbs is Philips X-treme Vision. My dad has them in his 2015 Chevy Trax and they are awesome! The color is essentially the same as a regular halogen bulb, but the output is way better and, best of all, you won't be blinding other drivers like you would with HIDs.oldelpaseo wrote:I was just curious because i find they suck and i do a lot of night driving in bad conditions so im lookings to make visibility better. I have already bougjt the sylvana silverstar something that were pretty expensive. They did make a difference but not much. And i dont want to go into illegal hid kits or leds. So i guess thats as good as it gets.
I just wish i could see as good as in my wifes rav4. But i guess that wont be possible.
You're wasting your money with SilverStars of any kind. The glass is tinted which gives off the whiter color, but reduces actual light output. Do some reading on the Candle Power Forum and you'll better understand what I'm talking about.oldelpaseo wrote:Thanks. I checked it out and what i have are the silverstar ultra. They are pretty good. Maybe i should try the zxe, could help the bad weather night driving.... Damn canadian winters.
Same mine are always on when the lights are on, I don't notice at all whenever I accidently turn them offsideshowalan wrote:They're purely aesthetic on the vibe, very little function.
Personally I think they look cool so I always left them on.
