Are you sure they're not just adjusted right yet? I had to adjust mine after because they were pointing down about 2 feet in front of my car

I have some of these. Centered fine they are great just not bright enough. I'm going to be upgrading to brighter bulbs.

That's what I got too. I read not to use HIDs with them to let you know.

I've owned a pair, there really isn't a difference between the basic sliverstars and those ones besides the price, and if I'm wrong then prove it.

Im not trying to be a dick, but I just don't want people wasting their money, they are a lot brighter then stock tho I will admit that but not really much against the basic silverstars, and also they do run hotter which might not be good for aftermarket housings since they aren't the same quality as OEM, you might get cracks or the spiderweb looking cracks in it as well as mine did in my old car with stock housing, when I get home I'll put up a comparison between a 5 year old stock bulb and those Xze or whatever they are called, I still have the pics from the install

Ya I agree but the basic silverstars produce the same results for 40 dollars less and also all bulbs mentioned don't last long

Also why is it you can't run hids? You can get them for 30 bucks on eBay

Here's off lights only with 8000k hids

Haha I have never been flashed once, and I have never been blinded by anybody else's HIDs but then again I'm only 25 and have a good set of eyes, modified exhaust is illegal in most states doesn't stop anybody does it?

Exhaust doesn't blind you at night either

My 87 came with after market head and tail lights. The heads are so bright that I have to drive with my brights on to not be flashed and blind every one. They look good but I have to figure something out maybe adjust or replace with a lesser bulb! My lights get brighter as I drive and they warm up and they also have individual ballast with them as well.
