Default Re: SilverStars vs. OEM Headlights

I would like to have 6 lights on at once up front for some of those really dark roads when it looks like the trees are closing in on you. Well that might have been after 24 hrs of non stop driving but then again who knows ha ha ha ha.

No traction control but no need it is a 5 speed

In the end ride quality means nothing performance is everything!

Done.

Here are the SilverStars to the left in the 1995 SL2 and the regular Sylvanias in the 1993 SW2 to the right:

Finally, side-by-side in ONE photo. Really, the only way to compare. People who post pics taken "serially" (one with one set of lights, one with another) have no basis of comparison, as the photos are inevitably shot with different exposure settings.

YO, looks like I'll be buying myself that six-pack! Turned out to be astonishingly easy. I'll start a new mods thread; maybe it'll be worth Charlie moving to How-To.

As in changing the OEM ones or getting a car that runs better under those types of conditions?

I love them! Excellent upgrade for night driving. Replacing the sealed beams and fog lamp bulbs on my Stealth was one of the first things I did.
