NAPA headlight suggestion

I don't have a million bucks to spend on HID headlights right now but I'm in need of a replacement. Mine are yellow and very very dull. I'm going on a trip this weekend and need something by tomorrow so I was going to go to NAPA and pick up a set of headlights. What would you guys choose out of these halogen bulbs? Do you think they will be good?

If you need them ASAP get silverstars. If you can wait get h4 housings and bulbs.

I have the sylvania silverstars in my TJ and like them alot. The light is whiter and seem brighter then the yellow stock headlights. They make a big difference. I am quit satisfied with mine. No need to upgrade any further.

You can get IPF/Hella H4 e-code housings for $30 bucks each - and a plug and play DDM HI/LOW 55w Hid kit for $65. $125 total for the upgrade, just in case you thought HID's would be more expensive.

I've got the H4 hellas in mine. Love them. And if you are gonna swap out for Silverstars, I've run both and the Hellas are superior and only a few more bucks. No difference as to the procedure to change they are both replacing the factory unit and the nice part is with the H4 if a bulb burns out, You can change it in about 2 minutes with no tools.

Where can I get the sylvania silverstars? I need them today

Also if I wanted to do the hella h4 HID can I get that locally?

They have the sylvania xtravision in stock at advanced auto but the silverstars are out of stock. Are the xtravision acceptable?

Extravision is not bad. Somewhere between stock and silverstar. I didnt do the H4 Hid. I just did a Hella H4 conversion. Much brighter than silverstar and not much more money. If you are swapping out lights an H4 conversion is the way to go and install is the same. Any decent parts store will have it in stock. Theyy might not have the Hella but Bosch makes a really good one too.

Pep Boys, Advance Auto, Auto Zone......any auto parts store will have Silverstars.

As indicated above HIDs are not much about 150 w/ shipping. If you are thinking about doing it, You want e-code H4 lenses. The auto parts store will not have those.
