I don't really need to replace my headlights but I was looking for something a little brighter, has anyone used the Sylvania Silverstar, are they good, is there something out there that is better? But I figure for $38.00 I really can't go wrong.

I installed the Silverstar last year in my 01 & they are definately an improvement over stock bulbs. Definately worth it.

I have some silverstars in my car and they are an improvement, however I have seen some threads saying they don't last long ~ 1 year or so for many. I have only had mine for a few months so too early to tell.

I haven't read about it in a while, but last year when I was looking into Silverstars I was directed to get OSRAM Silverstars rather than the Sylvania. Apparently, they are made by the same parent company and sold under Sylvania in the US and Osram in Europe. The Osrams, though, don't have the blue tint to the bulb like the sylvania ones do. Not having this tint makes them brighter than the sylvania silverstar. I was convinced and got a pair on Ebay from the UK for about the same as sylvanias at Autozone after shipping. Now I've never had or seen the sylvanias, but these osrams are awesome. I am very happy with them and plan on sticking with them in the future.

Do you still have the ebay link to that auction? Or have the sellers name or store? Thanks

Watch out for SUV Lights.com. I ordered a harness and the Osrams from then over 6 week ago now and haven't seen shiat. They are not returning calls or e-mails. I am about to open the can of whoopass on them if I don't atleast get a call. The last I heard was "they are shipping today". Here is another company that shipped my stuff in 2 days and has better prices for all around bulbs.Hella bulbs

Is this a current sale, or do you need a coupon from somewhere.

Will the "H4" bulbs fit my '01??

Is "H4" the type designation for our headlights? They don't list '01 Tacomas. They stop at 2000.

I was talking about the buy one for $19.99 and get the second 1/2 off. Not the five dollar deal. But thanks for being a dick about it. :bitchslap
