    Was thinking about changing my bulbs to a piaa or silverstar. Are they really that much brighter or is stock as good as it gets?

    I've had the Sylvania Ultra's in my headlights before and silverstars for the fogs and they worked great! Yes, they were quite a bit brighter. I took them out because I installed HID kits for both my heads and my fogs. I gave chris4x4 my old bulbs and he really likes them!;)

    I have silverstar's but they're not really that much of an improvement imo. Eventually I'm going back to HID... that's an improvement.
