I had the silverstars, they were a little whiter and brighter than stock, but one burned out only 6 months after installing. I have since upgraded to Apexcone 6k and the difference is unbelievable. I could never go back to halogens after having xenons.
no they are halogen, just plug and play. They omit about the same light as stock, but at a much bluer/whiter look. (in my opinion they look like hid, blue, but not fake blue) And they are at the stock 55w, so you dont have to worry about melting etc.
I found this topic because I wanted some picture guides to changing the lights. Well, I bought the Sylvania Silverstar HID look-alikes.
I like em'. The color isn't AS noticeable from the factory lights but it's enough to see a difference. And these are like true whites rather than a hint of purple or blue. At least from the 30 minutes I drove at night.
Well after a couple of nights it's actually noticeably different from stock lights. Silverstar isn't so bad although it's so soft white that often times in night city driving, at certain parts of the roads you ask yourself if your lights are even on because it spreads the lights out so nicely. It actually seems to light up the road better than stock.
I'm waiting for these to burn out from some of the other replies they go quick maybe. Once they do i'm going to seek some other options. Projections are nice, my Mazda3 isn't for keeps much more than 2 years so I don't want to invest in fancy lighting for now 8)
