Yes as said above, are the lenses crystal clear? Any fogging will cut the visibility drastically.

Also as for the Hids they work great! Or.... You can find some 50 state dot compliant white xenon bulbs for cheap as well, i search the bulb number along with the words gp thunder as that brand and the seller (ipremiertech or something) came highly recommended to me from a forum user here and I LOVE my bulbs

Thanks guys! Yes, my lenses are crystal clear.
I am more looking for/at the whitish/blue lights (brighter than the stockers) any better out there than the next? not really wanting to go to HID right now.

The lights you mention are the ones I was referring to in my post, most are dot compliant in all 50 states

Any light bulb that has the blue coating on it to appear white/blue doesn't give you any more light output, it actually gives you less. Don't waste your money. They only "look" cool, they don't improve visibility.

If you want a brighter bulb I would just put Silverstars in, if you want much brighter, then www.ddmtuning.com 55w 6000k kit is what you want, quality kit, lifetime warranty.

Keep in mind some states are now failing cars with HID kits installed for inspections do to the number of complaints of glare.

Thanks!!! I've actually got Silverstars in my F350 and they are GREAT! I've been advised that the ULTRAS do not last......think I'll put a set of SILVERSTARS in the Cruiser for my Wife.

I recently upgraded the head light bulbs in my PT. I had obtained a set of ZXE Silverstars, but alas the standard 9006 did not fit. You've got to make sure that you get the 9006XS, as the XS has a straight connector, the regular 9006 has a 90 degree connector.

After fighting with the driver's side for over an hour trying to get it in, I gave up and went and got a set of Silverstar 9006XS and they went right in. I'm not sure if it was an angle thing, or if the little divits that hold everything in the connector were a little different; either way they wouldn't go in


good luck

Exco

I wanted to get the Silverstar Zxe bulbs for my '07 PT Cruiser, but they originally only had the regular 9005/9006 bulbs. I read on Sylvania's website that they were adding some additional part numbers for the Zxe, the 9005xs/9006xs was listed.

Though Sylvania said the additional part numbers were coming out in April, I did finally find some Zxes on Amazon.com a few weeks ago. I ordered the High/Low beams today and can't wait to see what they look like in the PT. I looked under Sylvania's bulb replacement guide and didn't see them listed there yet. Hope this helps.
