Want a new set of headlights?

Ok, we were talking about headlights in another thread. I suggested some APC headlights that I've used in my bike for years. Well of coarse, as soon as I start talking about them the low beam on one of the lights goes out.

But, anyway, I found out that for some reason they aren't making them anymore. They have something named the same thing but the bulbs aren't near as blue meaning that when you put them in, they still give off a yellow hue, not birght pure white. And they're only 60/45W

So I called a buddy of mine that is in the sport compact scene and asked him what's up. He suggested this brand..

Xenon Crystal Bulb

They look awesome. Not too mention that they were way cheaper. $22.95 plus tax. Got them at a local vechicle assecory shop. Same place you would order a spoiler for your honda or a set of vent visors for the wife's SUV.

Found them on Car for $14 which is stupid cheap.

These are my new favorite.

I tried some other things at the auto store, Sylvania Silverstars, and they were junk.

Here's a pic of my set...

Hope this helps out some of you wanting a better looking light and more light output!

You said that the Sylvania Silverstars are junk????? I find that totally impossible to believe. I have the Silverstars in my bike and they are absolutely freakin' awesome. Excellent white light that lets me see amazingly well at night..much, much better than the OEM bulbs. When I hit the high beam especially, I can completely light up an expressway sign from over a mile or maybe even two miles back. And even with cars way ahead of me, there's no question that it's my bike doing the illuminating.

Did you actually put the Silverstars in your bike and try them at night? I'm thinking tha maybe you got a set that were switched by another customer and returned...maybe you didn't actually try the Silverstars, but some cheap brand in the Silverstars place???

The Silverstars are excellent. About as far from junk as I could imagine.
LMAO. I have to agree with Simon on this one. I had Eurolite bulbs in my car, went through 2 sets in 6 months. CHEAP GARBAGE. So I did some online researcha dn talked to some people, majority recommended the Silverstars. So I put those in and they kicked ass! Bright white light and did not loose spectrum further out. I HIGHLY reccomend them. They are on the pricey side but well worth it.
