I used PIAA for the low and high's, and Silverstars for the fogs.
You can also use Silverstars for the high's but I did not find them available for the lows.

What size headlights are required...9006, 9007, or H series?

Low beams are H11 (OEM 55w)
High beams are 9005 (OEM 65w)

I ordered PIAA fog lights and went ahead got thier Xtreme White 9005 to replace the high beams. They are 4000K (color) and = to 120w bulbs. They look witer and brighter, but to me they don't look twice as bright as the ones I replaced (but maybe watts doesn't show that way). I like them though because I like bright high beams and didn't want to spend more to get HID's. I might get some HID's for the low beams (still undecided, as I don't want people to flash me).:)

Are they the silverstar Ultra's ?
How do the colors match between the PIAA's and silverstars ?

I have found that the Silverstars offer great performance but lack longevity. Maybe the new Silverstar Ultra's will be better. I have yet to loose a PIAA but the price is almost twice the SS.

In my 04 Dodge Ram I got about 2.0 years of life out of the standard silverstars when I used them for the low beams and about 1.5 years of life when I used them for fog lights.

The SS Ultras are supposed to last longer. You readily find them on ebay for very good prices.

They don't. My PIAAs lasted exactly one year to the day...Silverstars rock out! They last a helluva lot longer, and are just as good...not to mention a butt-load cheaper.:D

I've outfitted all of my cars with bulbs from BimmerXenon.com

They match my BMW's factory Xenon HID's very closely if that's the look you're shooting for. I've had a few people ask when I installed HID's on my Sequoia and T100.

If anything check out the guy's sick BMW that's been in a few magazines. 450 HP from a 540i.

Does this site offer lights for other vehicles besides BMW?

Anybody ever use NOKYA Arctic White ?

The silverstars in 9145 seem hard to find.

I have used Nokya Hyper Yellow previously and was not overly impressed. I can not comment on the Arctic Whites though.

I picked up my Silverstars 9145 on ebay.
