no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no

NEVER put HIDs into stock housings, especially chinese garbage like those. You want a good halogen bulb for your car. Something that'll work best is a genuine Phillips bulbs. Sylvania is ok, but thats still on the cheaper end. A good halogen set up will be just as bright and won't cause massive glare to everyone else on the road.

If brightness is that important get rid of the tinted lights. I myself have headlight covers, but i went that route on purpose so i can just pop them off at night and actually have visibility.

Genuine Phillips bulb...... Remember that.

Silverstars are gimmicks. You want Osram Night Breakers or Philips Xtreme Power.
