Hey, I just stuck a couple bulbs in....
Silverstar 9005 SU/2 ( the "/2" signifying a "twin pack") --> High Beams
(They are identified as "Silverstar Ultra - for ultra night vision" and a little diagram put them above the others by a few hundred lumens intesity and several hundred K tempurature over the next best in the series...)
okay... they are brighter than stock.
Silverstar 9145ST into the fog lamps....
It caught me off guard when I realized the 9005's were for the HIGH BEAM function ONLY.... and the LOW beams are still stock. Isn't there something out there for the H11-55Ws? (I get it after realizing they "split" the HIGH/LOW beams... my first to mess with something that does this...)
RESULTS: (i always run with LOW + FOG beams 24/7... looks cool, and read the safety stats some time...)
WOW! I gotta be BLINDIN' people when I don't pop them back to low right away! A quick run to the store through a rural stretch in the dark, and SHAZAAM! HIGH beams are FANTASTIC! (They look a little high... maybe it's just all greater coverage?!!) I am thinking they come on WITH the LOW beams, so if a really nice LOW beam bulb.... (I'd like COOL BLUE THERE, please!!!!) it would HAVE to look trick and show very WELL in the night! (I noticed how the stock HIGH bulbs appear to have same/similar mount as the FOG bulbs.... and ALMOST considered putting the 65W bulb down THERE! HA!) Did ya notice the fogs are only 40's?
OK, now we gotta re-route our FOG circuit to run independent of the HEADLIGHTs being on or off. Did that on my supra and it looked GREAT with 115W H3's sitting near the road with just running lights or NOTHING else! SWEEEET in the daytime, too! NOW imagine running in BRIGHTS mode where both HIGH beams and LOW beams are running w/ these bulbs, then kick in those independent FOGS! KrrrrrrrAKKATOWA!!!
.... so my odd-essay continues with the Solara... and the forum sheds yet "new light" on my journey....
