My issues with HID lights have been they are TOO bright for normal highway driving. getting them adjusted so they won't be a hazard to other drivers has been a pain and no luck so far (I have mine installed in my CIBIE housings. I may try the originals and see if a different technology improves the pattern).
I had the Silverstars in prior to the HID mainly because the H4 OSRAMs earlier installed failed in 12 months (within a day of each other). The Silverstars are more available (and I still carry two as spares) but the light output is mediocre, not nearly as good as the H4 OSRAMS.
I replaced my fog lamps with 55watt 9005 lights. (I do have relays with diodes and capacitors to switch the circuits for the lights so I have had zero computer issues or flicker). The 9005s go in the same fog lamp mount with a bit of finagling. They are brighter, but I think I prefer something a bit more yellow for fog lamps. (as FOG LAMPS not DRIVING LAMPS which at least half of the other drivers seem to think is so cool.... run with the FOG LAMPS on all the time. What do they not understand about the FOG
in "FOG LAMPS"?
