I have a 1997 GL and have APC Ultra White Bulbs, they are ok. I also have the sylvania cool blue lights in my 01 SES Wagon. I want something with a "blue" look yet that is still bright. Any ideas, prices, where i can get them? I know about the silverstars. I do not really want ot upgrade my wiring harness. I want just a straight replacement.

If you are wanting a blue look then don't go with the Silverstars. I have a set of them and they have no blue tint to them. They are much whiter then the stock halogen bulbs though. I've ordered an upgraded harness from suvlights.com and can send pics if you like of it with the old bulbs, the new bulbs and the new bulbs and the harness once it arrives.

When you get the new harness can you post three sets of pics, one with the stock bulbs by themselves, one with the silverstars by themselves, and one with the silverstars with the new harness?
Thanks

Try the PIAA plasma GT something bulbs...from the reviews I've read they put out a blueish-almost purple light. PIAA's are some of the most expensive bulbs that you can get however...

Yeah I was planning on doing that (the three pics) for the picture for that mod in my garage.

I'm fairly sure i still have the oem bulbs, will have to dig them up.

They are expensive, but they are great. I have the PIAA ultra plasma white or something like that. Incredibly nice when the roads are dry and wet. Cant wait to get the upgrade harness and see what they do.

Yeah PIAA's are great. They got a year warrenty and they make 194's that match.

Mine have lasted almost 2 years so far.

Well i know the images are slightly resized but i believe it still gets the point across. I got The silverstars (pair) for around 35 bucks at a local parts store. The heavy duty harness was from suvlights.com for 55 plus 7 bucks s/h. If you are looking for White and bright headlights you can beat this combo for the price IMO.

Is the harness something that can be home made?

More then likely i'm guessing. But this has been the best one i have found when looking at these. It has very thick gauge wire and uses good relays
