Headlight bulbs

I need to replace my headlight bulbs since they don't light that bright anymore. I called the dealer and they say 32 each. Is this how much the sell for??? Also how hard is it to change them??? Thanks

That's way too expensive. Good bulbs are about $45 for a pair. They are very easy to replace. Remove a rubber boot on the back of the housing, undo a wire clip, then pop the bulb out. Don't touch the glass of the bulb when you put the new one in.

You can get a decent set of Sylvanias for like $12. If you want silverstars or something, they'll be more like $30 for a pair? It's been a while since I've been in the halogen game.

Like the other poster said, don't touch the glass. I like to clean bulbs off with a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol just to be sure, never know if they were touched in the factory.

you will get MARGINAL improvement.
I changed to Silverstars Ultra (what ever the F that means).

Better then OEM but not what I was looking for...
