  • Fog lights

    So I have silverstar lows n cool blue highs, love em, I also have silverstars in my fogs, well in the 2yrs ive had my sc im on my 2nd pair, and one of them just burned out last nt.

    Any suggestions for nice fog bulbs that dont burn up every couple months.

    And no I dont always drive with my fogs on. Only bad weather or the once a wk I take the turnpike to philly n end up driving at nt.

    TIA

Pressures and stresses of all kinds thermal and mechanical loading across the board escalate to extreme levels. A Chevrolet 5.7-liter LS1 V8 with this much specific power (horsepower per cubic inch) would be making 2,137 hp

      I heard the ultras burn out faster than reg silverstars, the headlamp ones anyway, but Ive had my reg silverstar headlamps for well over a yr, just the fogs burn up.

          I hate silverstars.

          The blue light output, while visually appealing, is not good for sight... especially when wet out.

          My next lighting upgrade will be to remove the factory fogs, upgrade the headlight wiring harness (big improvement on other cars, not sure about the saturn), and run Phillips Vision Plus bulbs.

            Sylvania will give you new ones for free if you call them. But yeah, they burn out real fast.

              My silverstars have no blue hue what so ever. Even the cool blue in my highbeams arnt blue, thier just not as deadly as silverstars.

              Yeah Ive heard good things from nokyas, I'll look into them to replace my fog bulbs.

                Put a silverstar in one light and a normal bulb in the other and you'll see what I'm talking about.

                    Im about to call them tomorrow!

                    My silverstar foglights burn out all the time! Ive had the same pair of Silverstar low beams in for about a year and ive gone through at least 3 pairs of foglights. Either side will always go out.


                    I replace 1 Silverstar foglight on my moms car that was out for a couple months and 2 days later the other one went out. [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/evil.gif[/img]
