I also have the "Cool blues". They are brighter and more "white" then stock but they still aren't enough for me.

Those are the new silver stars, which is sylvania's version of Piaa's. I would love to get them but they don't come in a 9003 size yet. I'm running Cool Blues right now and i like them, their pretty bright. BTW i had some piaa super whites before the cool blues and they blew after only a year of service. IMO piaa's are over priced & overrated...

And nuke your wiring harness! Yay! Stick to stock wattage or you'll pay for it in the end.

i have the sylvania silver stars.

they're much better than stock, and so much better if you hate seeing every import with blue-ish headlights. (not knockin ya, i know MANY people have them...just not my thing)
-they're great man, i highly recommend the silver stars...

hiper industries are really bright but a pain in the ass 2 deal with

ShowOff Krypton bulbs.. really nice .. wont burn out your wires wattage is 100 / 80.

m-tec (if h4) then it would be 160/130 W ...but if regular 9004 then it be 100/80 but all these are slight blue and more white . this is top of the line.

sylvania.. iono.. it may seem good but i dont really know 2 much about them except they not that bright and not that white.

I have the Sylvania Xtravision headlight bulbs for my B13. They are brighter than stock, but not overly bright to where you are blinding other drivers. They don't have a blue tint to them yet they give out a good amount of light. I have a red car, so have any type of hyper white lighting would kinda look stupid IMO. When the Sylvania Silver Stars come out in the 9003 bulb version, I plan on getting them. My Sylvania Xtravision bulbs were only $10 a bulb, cheaper than most hyper white bulbs out on the market.

i've had the hyper industries bulbs in my car for about a year and 1/2 now. i really like them. they are bright white with a small blueish tint. as a matter of fact i have a pair of them sitting on my desk right now that im not using and a pair of eurolite fusion bulbs.

I heard Eurolites are crap. I know hyperindustries are good for their price. What do you expect from $20 bulbs?? MTEC's are overrated. PIAA's are excellent quality but im not going to shell out $90-110 for a set of bulbs.

which bulb what wattage?

I had a set of hiper white bulbs put in by my local audio shop about a year ago and in my 99 GXE they put some 9007 which burned out one harness a couple months later. I put the stocks back in and that was okay until the last two weeeks when I saw a thread on the ease of replacing the harness which I did today. I then put in a set of hiiper industries 9004HW80 12v bulbs and two things happened. First, the high beam inside light came on. Then I felt the headlight housing and after a minute or so It was burning hot and I figured that couldn't be right. Needless to say I put the factories back in buy want to know if I have the right size and wattage bulb and what I should get? Any thoughts. pablo

I have the sylvania cool blues 9004 bulbs in for a long time and they have not burned out anything. For the price i paid, they are good bulbs. I dont think the bulbs are your problem, might be the harness itself.

The stock harness was melted. I replaced it with an autozone special and with the 9004 hiper whites, the high beam inside light came on but the bulbs worked. I tookem out, put in the stock bulbs and they are just fine. Problem is, I don't want fine, I want a new brighter more white, less yelow bulb. I've seen the silver stars and cool blues mentioned several times. What's a good price?

you were using 9004 bulbs? that might be the problem. i think all 98-99's use 9007 bulbs. (even though the manual says 9004) go back to the stock bulbs and harnesses and get the silverstars....you'll never want another brand after you get them in.
