    Silverstar lighting

    I bought Sylvania Silverstar Fog lights (880ST), but can't seem to find the same Silverstars for the low beam headlights 4703. Saw an old thread with the same problem. Is this still the case or are there lights to match my foglights. There is a 4703 light Xtravision lighing from Silvania, but not as bright as Silverstar. I think there is a Silverstar Ultra performance 4703, but not sure if it matches good with the fog lights I bought. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Yeah, I think it may be tough. I saw the silverstar sealed beam at one the car shops, but it was not the 4703. So they do have the silverstar, but not the number I am looking for. I have seen 4666 but don't know if that one will actually work as a replacement for 4703.

    I don't think they make them because when i got my car in 2003 i have been looking but have come up empty handed thus far, but I'll take more of a look again. by the way how do you like the fog lights i got them in mine and they seemed quit a bit brighter then stock how about yours?

    I have not put the fog lights on yet because I wanted to put the headlights and foglights at the same so the lights look the same. The old headlights will look different I suppose, much less bright the the new fog lights. Do you have the regular halogen lights on your headlights and the brighter fog lights?

    Yeah I have the halogen head lights and the silver stars in the fog lights the difference is not really that different, but the fog lights are a little brighter and more white but it is not that big of a difference. I tried looking every where for our sealed beam headlights but could not find any upgrades, since the I have decided to just make my own with the new C6 Vette lights. Its gonna take some time and a lot of fabrication but its gonna look sweet i'll see if I can get a camera to upload the drawing that I drew out to see how they would look on my car.

    There was a guy with a Ws6 at a carshow last year and he had HIDs in the lows and the fogs. NBM and was in an issue of GMHTP. Was supercharged. I dunno what HIDs he had in the lows though.

    Either way should be good.

    Yeah I got the idea from that kit but i don't like the square head light in there, so i came up with this all round headlights. Well i really did not come up with it just came to me after my first drive in a C6 Vette, the C6 Corvette designers came up with it I just transfered the idea to a 4th gen Trans Am.

    880st Fog Lights

    The cheapest I've found the 880st was on ebay, $20 for 2 of them. Has anyone found them for cheaper?

    $20 for 2 sounds very good. Don't think there will be something cheaper. I also got mine for just under 20 each.
