    Check out some HID lights. There are websites that sell them but i don't remember which have ones for T/A's. Someone on here will have the link.

    Get the best stock replacements possible and aim those boys up and to the side. Stock angles are way too low to the ground.

    Go to Autozone and get Sylvanias, they work really well.

    I used hi-beam lights and twisted the connector pins 90* with a pair of pliers. (you have to be very careful... if you break them off you're screwed) I've had them like that for about 8 months and they work fine.

    I can't beleive I'm the only person to try this.

    They are extremely bright.

    Silverstars are the bulb only. We have a sealed beam housing, not just the bulb. Ill post the picture of the package later tonight... i still have the box it came in. I didnt think about using high beams tho. I might try that.

    i was told this week by my parts guy that he *thinks* sylvania is making silverstars in sealed beams that will fit our cars--I am thinking of going that route too. Let ya'll know if i find out something.

    that would work well if you wanted to blind the hell out of oncoming traffic. you should only put HIDs in good projectors, which is also the only legal way to have them.
