    Philips Xtreme Power.

    No-cheap "HID-look" color filters, just good strong halogen lights. I used them on my bugeye, and they are regarded as the best 9007 bulb you can get. Mine lasted for more than 3 years.

    i dont use those but from what Issac said i believe so.

    when i replace my bulbs ill use these
    Amazon.com: Sylvania 9007 SU SilverStar Ultra Halogen Headlight Bulb (Low/High Beam), (Pack of 2): Automotive

    didnt know they were so inexpensive from amazon.. compared to like 55$ at local auto parts store..

    I've used the silverstars and had three bulbs burn out within a month. Luckily the manager of the auto parts store was the guy who sold me the sylvanias and he watched me put them in so when i came back with both burned out he gave me a new pair, then when I came back again with one burned out he gave me a refund.

    Most likely just an isolated incident though.

    Sylvania Silverstar Ultras (and the other tinted bulbs) are garbage
