    Camaro lights

    Ok guys I want to replace all my bulbs, low beams, high beams and fogs. I use to have the sylvania Silverstar High Performance low and highs before my acccident but I got stock bulbs put back in when the car got fixed. The only issue I had with the silverstar is they did not match the fogs. I now see they have silverstar ultras which are suppose to be even whiter but there is no upgraded bulb for the fogs by sylvania that I can find.

    Anyone know of a brand that has something similiar to the silverstar's that has low, highs and fogs that will all match? I just don't want my lows to be really white then my fogs to have a yellow tint.

    Basically I was trying to get across two lanes of traffic to get to the median. There was a big fedex truck pulling into the parking lot I was leaving and I thought the other lane was clear.

    And as you can see the other lane was't clear.

    JonB...if you're still working the lights issue...if you were working from the stock fogs before...you can replace them with Hella Micro DEs...they fit in the stock brackets. Then the bulb is an H3, which is pretty standard. It comes in Silverstar and most other popular options. Should be able to match with high or low beam.

    Can you post up some more info about the Hella Micro DEs, possibly a site/link to them?

    Well, they've been around for awhile, they are "projector fogs", I think they are made out of magnesium or something...there is a xenon version (expensive) and a halogen version (reasonable). They bolt into the stock bracket. They only hard part about the substitution is you can't use the factor aiming stud...you have to do that manually and then just tighten the two axial mounting screws real well. I've had them in for the stock units for years, and halogen version will run the Silverstar bulbs so everything's the same color when they are on. I used the harness to power them because they use 55 watt bulbs, I think the stock bulbs are like 32 watts or something like that. If any of the sponsors carry lighting they probably have them. The hella usa site has a description of them.

    Thanks for the great info. I followed the link and maybe I missed something but I didn't see any ideas on pricing. Can you just give me a ballpark idea what the halogen and xenon versions might run.

    Sure...do a google search on "hella micro de" and lots of options pop up. 140 for the hallogen kit is typical. lights, bulbs, and a lighting harness with the relay. You can use the harness to bring the battery to the lights to support the higher current, and use the old leads to turn on the relay (the coil side) and that way they work with your stock switch. (and in the original post I fat fingered factory to factor so it was the factory aiming stud that was the issue)

    I think the xenon ones are like 700...just add "xenon" to the google search. You have to love xenon to pay for it.

    Good luck...its a subtle but nice mod. Lots more light to look for the stray deer.

    Appreciate the help and I see what you mean about the reasonable and expensive aspects now

    Do a search by car, I have them in my Camaro and they are the closest thing to HID, bright white with a hint of blue.

    Man that is so irritating that sylvania doesn't make bulbs for the fogs to match. I have searched and can't find squat. Any one else have any luck?

    I was pretty much all body damage and all the support that hold the nose on. The radiator and condesor were fine, the washer fluid tank was replaced.

    Since I love whoring out my car here's a quick pic I took the day I got it back.

    I do now have stock fogs so I really don't want to swap them for a whole new unit. I've been searching every where and no one seems to make an upgraded bulb for the fogs its just the regular bulb. Really kinda sucks I guess I'll just have to hold out till someone decideds to make one.
