    Default Sylvania Silverstar Ultra review

    Not a long review or anything. I had just some regular lights in my 97 Merc and night driving sucked. They were probably old so they were not as bright as new. They were just standard yellowish lights. I ended up going to O'Reiley's and getting a set of Silverstar Ultras because they have a $10 rebate right now on them. Took the car out tonight and it's SO much better. I highly recommend these lights for sure.

    Yeah man, I'd swear my regular lights were not on at night and was paranoid I was driving with no lights they were so dim. These new ones are awesome.

    But honestly for the same amount of money or close to it, you can go HID from DDM and be way way way better than silverstars. Honestly.

    I have a complex HID setup on my Ultra. HID hi/low 55W 8K on my headlight and 35W 6K on the spot lights. But I included a solid state delay timer so that my lights don't come on till my motor is running. Further, instead of running seperate power from the battery (under seat) to the front of the bike for: radio amp, 2 sets of hids, etc. I ran a 4ga wire from the battery to the front with a power block. So all mine is just a short run now.

    But I have ran HIDs on a few bikes and all my cars. The DDM kits are the best and all come with lifetime warranties.
