    Brightest Lights on the cheap

    So, I've been looking around for replacement low beams.
    What I want to do is get the brightest low's and high's that I can find for my car. I was told "Sylvania SilverStar Ultras will give you the brightest halogen light." I've read around about doing the 9005/9006 conversions and I've looked into upgrading the wiring.

    Route? No idea.
    HID seems like a can of worms. Found kits, but... thats a lot of wires.

    What's the best route to take? Are HID really worth it?

        think about it...any of those coated bulbs cant possibly put out more light because they are coated.

          Stick with Silverstar Ultras. They are very bright. HIDs in oem reflector lights will cause a major glare onto on coming traffic.


          ....which equals tickets.

                Not as complicated as it looks. Even if you dont know what youre doing, it shouldnt take more than an hour, 2 tops, to install.

                If not Silverstar, look into PIAA.

                    Ok, so are HID worth the $?
                    should you do both high's and lows? maybe just highs? just lows?

                    I'm a friggin nub at this, just trying to find what my best option is.
                    Looks arent a major objective. I just want max lighting. Deer in my area scare the hell out of me. :P

                    Thanks in advance for all of the help

                      it's a bad enough glare for cops to question it

                        Not where I'm from. Its more dangerous having someone with their hi beams on than a HID kit.
                        wat?

                            That one doesnt look bad at all. A few of the wires plug into eachother so...thats cuts back.

                            Ive seen guys in my town with like 8000k HIDs in OEM lights. Looks more blue than anything, but...

                            I dont think cops would bust you for 6000k in OEM housings.

                            If your gonna go HIDs, IMO, just do your lows. You could do highs, but if youre not a fan of wires then, just stick with the lows.

                            In a way, im alot like you. Im not necesarrily afraid of deer or anything but i just want better visibility and store bought bulbs just arent cutting it.

                            Id say look go into a place that does alarms, tint, bodywork, etc. and tell them your situation. Tell them you don want those Ricer blue bulbs but you want a normal bulb that has a high output.

                            If they cant help or dont suggest anything, id pick up some HIDs. You can find some kits for anywhere from $150-$300. Hook em up, see how you like em. If you do, then work on either getting projectors or doing a retrofit.

                              SilverStars definately put out more light than the OE yellow bulbs. At least they appear to, it may just be a question of light temperature, whether the whiter light just appears brighter or the bulbs actually are brighter I don't know. I've used Cool Blue and SilverStar and like the Cool Blue better because they are still white, and they last longer, my silverstars both burnt out in about two months. And no, I didn't touch the glass.
