Are these Headlights Good?

Thinking about buying these and getting a HID kit from xenondepot. What do you guys think of these headlights? My WK is black btw.

Re: Are these Headlights Good?

they are ok from the feedback seen here on the forums....but I would get some silicone sealant and add extra seal around the outside edges

Re: Are these Headlights Good?

I really like those and also plan on getting a set to help with the "storm trooper" look on my white WK. As far as HIDs in them, I personally would not because I don't think it's a good idea to put HIDs in anything other than a projector lens as that is what they are designed for. I hate going down the road and seeing someone with HIDs in a standard headlight and being smacked in the corneas because of the scatter caused by a non projector lens. Aiming the lights can help, but it really doesn't fix the issue. Just my thoughts though, and to each their own.

What about the Sylvania SilverStars? I heard they have a nice crisp look to them. I plan on getting some smoked fogs as well. How do you think that would look with the SilverStars?

Do they have a white or yellow look to them? I just want something that has a nice clear white look.

Re: Are these Headlights Good?

Silverstars will give you a very bright white beam. I've always used them before because of that very reason. You'll be amazed at how much brighter they are.

They have a white look to them, there isnt really any yellow in this bulb at all. ive had these bulbs since last october and still running strong. once you buy these bulbs you will not want stock ones anymore

but if you buy the new headlight housing you will have to re-adjust your bulbs too btw.
