I put in slyvania silverstar ultras tonight, 9005. It was a bit of a hassle getting them in, I needed my wife's small hands for parts of it. After that they work like a charm.

You can compare these to what your lights look like and see if the $30 and about 15 min of work is worth it. I also felt a lot more comfortable when I saw the stock bulbs are Slyvania also. So I trust they will last just as long as the stock ones should.

If you have any questions about how to install let me know. I should be doing my other ones this weekend.
