Headlight quandry / reccomendations

My headlight seems to be getting alot dimmer lately (or perhaps after two years I'm finally realizing its a pos), so at minimum it's time to get a new bulb. So before I just go out and buy the stock bulb, I seek reccomendations from some fellow WT members.

I want to stick with the stock lense and bucket, and would prefer to just get a new bulb, or something that is relatively plug and play. Thoughts anyone?

Silverstar or PIAA for a bulb would be my vote.

I've got a PIAA Xtreme White Plus and I love it. Much better then stock. I use PIAA bulbs on my car as well.

what ever you do dont go with those extreme blue white / blue bulbs... it hurts night time driving visibility for you.. and blinds everyone else on the road.

I like the silver star ultra's when it comes to non HID bulbs. most places will stock these bulbs

orrrrr you could go all out on the jw speaker headlight


It may not look incredibly bright in this photo, but believe me when I say night turns into day. It is damn bright. Better than any HID throw in I have seen

I've got a Silverstar in the classifieds FS

You could also try cleaning the contacts on the hi-lo switch as well as the starter button. WD40 or electronics cleaner
