Are these headlight bulbs worth the money? Is there a site where I can get them at a good price? And finaly, is there a better bulb out there that I should look into?

Thanks in advance for all of the help.

Buy Silverstars direct from Sylvania (free shipping): http://www.sylvaniaperformanceshop.c...C=111520030459
They only have the 9006XS bulbs, $44.98 a pair, part #9006XSST. Not sure if the 9005 Silverstars fit without any problem. Light output is on par with PIAA Superwhites at half the price.

Can also look at Köba Xenon Bulbs, German made and standard wattage, but they have the 90º connector. I have installed them in the high (9005) and low beams (9006)and in the fog lamps (9006) without a problem or any modifications. Light output is comparable to PIAA Superwhites and Sylvania Silverstars. $8.55 a pair, $7 shipping

Can e-mail the seller, eliteshop aka KöbaUSA, to see if they will sell you a complete set for all your lights and save on shipping. I won an auction and e-mailed the seller about buying the rest of the bulbs at the lowest price and they agreed to do that.

The 9005 Silverstars should fit the high beam but they are a tight fit since they do have the 90 degree connector instead of the straight connector. The 9006XS was super easy to install and I am very pleased with the color of the light, the light pattern and the visibility.
