Hey guys and gals, I was wondering if anyone knows of a good replacement bulbs for the stock headlights and fog lights. I would like to get some that would be a bit brighter than stock and simple to install. Thanks for the help!

I got the Osram Nightbreakers for headlight replacements. Better beam pattern than stock with a good cut off and whiter light IMO, took some headlight readjustment to see the full benefit, I think the lights are aimed pretty low from the factory. Much farther reach with denser beam. Even my wife approves lol High beams on unlit canyon roads is like turning on a light switch. Bulbs have been going strong for over a year, I was worried about short life but not the case.

I have had Silverstars in the past and these are brighter/denser and have lasted longer, even though they're made by the same company (I think?).

IDK about fog lights, I don't have any

Thanks for your input. Did you purchase your night breakers from a retail store or online? Also which silverstars did you use?

disable DRL by removing fuse when not using factory bulbs(factory is extended long life)

many aftermarket bulbs die quick with our low voltage DRLs

Got them on Amazon. Looks like the Nightbreaker Unlimited has replaced the Plus which I got:
OSRAM NIGHT BREAKER UNLIMITED (WAS PLUS) 9003 (HB2/H4) Headlight Bulbs (Twin Pack) | PowerBulbs

In the past i've just used the standard Silverstar.

those are just 4000k color temp. I think my 5900k bulbs look amazing, and for $5 they have been working jsut fine with no noticeable dimming since february or march of this year

Yeah if you like blue headlights something like Nokyas are a cheap buy. I never understood the bluish lights, I had a pair for five minutes in 2001 or something and I took them out after a day. Also illegal in CA.

OP: FYI the bulb color temp is not a reflection of light output, just what color the light is:

I just put these in and I'm loving the "whiter" light.
Worth every penny.

Now just need to find the foglight bulbs to match.
