Default will these really fit?

http://www.amazon.com/SYLVANIA-Silve...ylvania+lights

wanted to get these but i'm not sure if they would actually fit my 2001 cruiser.

anyone know for sure. if not, can anyone recommend some good lights for my car? i'm more concerned with brightness than anything else.

Having just replaced my headlights with the sylvania silver stars I can tell you, yes they fit. It's a bit of monkeying around to get them in place as the old ones have an angle on them but they will fit. Took me about 30 minutes without putting it on a lift. If you want brighter, go with the silver stars. About $20 cheaper at Walmart than the ultras and 2-3 times brighter than stock. I do know the life of those bulbs are rated at "up to 12 months" as stated on the back of the package. So for 12 months you might wanna save some $$ if you have to replace again. Just my opinion and experience. Thanks. Good luck.

There is a better choice. And these are the part numbers that you need.



And here's where to get them for less than standard bulb at the parts store:

Sylvania 9006xs Sz 2 ZXE Xenon Fueled HID Car Headlight Bulb 2 Pack | eBay

Sylvania 9005XS Sz 2 ZXE Xenon Fueled HID Car Headlight Bulb 2 Pack | eBay


boonie2 and GrapeApe like this.

If you don't like the ZXE's Then go with PIAA Power Sports and don't get caught with them on the highway.

To me, they seem much brighter than the stock bulbs. And according to most of what I've read, they are basically the Silver Star Utlra's except with a slight blue filter applied to make them true white. Many folks believe the white shift makes them brighter to the naked eye. In truth, I'm sure the blue filter reduces brightness to some degree. But it's all in the very red part of the spectrum and doesn't impact what people's eyes use to see and focus in color. Here's an article:

Also, read these Amazon reviews:

And here's a YouTube comparison:



What do your headlight lenses look like? Are they hazed over? When I installed mine, I also installed brand new black-bezel headlight assemblies. So mine are very clear.

Hi BronzeLincolns, did you receive the pm I sent you concerning the headlamp sets I have for sale? They are a direct fit for your car and will provide a great and ample beam of light for you. I have the high and low beam sets both.
