I recommend Silverstar Ultras if your just looking to change the bulbs I've had good luck with them in other vehicles, but you would get the best results from getting HIDs. You can actually get good HID sets for less than the silverstars.

go to DDMtuning.com get some HIDs... but please note. from what i understand they are illegal in most if not all states when not in a projector housing. i never hear of anyone being pulled over for them. but they are extremely bright when someone is driving towards you but i have 2 sets on my car and one on my harley. will never go back.

I dont see how hids are illegal in non projector housings when alot of new cars have them without projectors, & either silverstars or hids is the only way to go

HID's are the way to go. I'm not sure where your are but in MI the law says that the lights have to be white. There are no specifics on HID's. You could do a google search to check on the laws in your area.
This is the kit I have and I've had no problems in almost 2 years of use. xeno HID KIT H1 H3 H6m H4 H7 H8/H11 H9 H10 H13 9004 9005 9006 9007 D2S D2R 6000K | eBay

do silverstar ultras give off a blueish tint or is it straight on white? It's getting to the point that i need to change my lights. I think my passenger dim is on it's way out and if i'm gonna replace it i'd like it to be either white or light blue tint rather than the yellowish orange that i'm working with now.

Pure white!



The foglights have standard bulbs and show the amber-ish tint to the stock bulbs I had.
