they are $50 at pepboys for (2) although walmart had them (2) for $37...

I've had them two months no problems and they are much of an improvement. Cars looks more agressive at night

The sylvania is just like the rest of the bulbs because it has a tinted glass, the OSram sylverstar are the good ones. I personally would go with PIAA.

The 02-03 models use a 9007 bulb, IIRC.

I just got the osram silverstars as mentioned above. They are awesome. My Wife drove my car the other night behind me (I was in her car) and they looked awesome. The aren't hid looking, but they are WAY WHITER than stock. The problem is that when you get a bulb with the blue tint, it actuall lets out less light than the same bulb without that tint. This is what the Osram is, a sylvania silverstar without that blue tint. It also doesn't make youe headlamps have that blue tint when you look at it in the daytime either. You can order these online, and I highly recomend them. I also got High beam bulbs at the same time which are H1R1 bulbs. This setup works very well. I am going to try to take some pictures of my set up versus a friends stock setup tonight, and I will post when I can.

If I find the info of where and exactally what I ordered I will add it later.

and HERE

Link to where I bought them!!!


I will post pictures maybe by this weekend. It's raining here now, and is supposed to continue for 3 days... Digital camera (or film for that matter) don't like the rain too much, so I will be waiting...

I just got a pair of Hella Premium +50%. Havent put them in yet, but I have heard good things about them. Although they produce better results with headlamps with E-code pattern like my morrettes!

I got the Osram Silverstars, and they do appear to be a bit whiter than stock and throw out more usable light. These bulbs are different from Sylvannia, because they do not have that blue tint, which (although looks better) cuts down on the light output. I got mine from:

http://www.powerbulbs.com/

They did a big review over in the UK, and it came out on top. I don't have the link on me, but I'll see if I can locate it.
