    I have had good luck with the Silvainia Silverstars. Make sure that on the container it says "Made in Germany", because, you know, the Germans make good stuff.

    Yeah, I heard that many people have had problems with them, but the onse made in Germany seem to be pretty good. Just throwing it out there. Do what you want.

    Do you by chance remember where they said they were made? In al seriousness, I have found that the German ones last a long time. :confused:

    I have the Sylvania Ultra's in my headlights. Never had a problem with them and they give off a nice white glow. Not the ones you want if your looking for the HID blue look though.:cool:
