Where Did You Hear Of Camarosource.ca?: Boobs
Since in the past I have always been one to push the Sylvannia Silver Star headlights along with the warning that they tend to not last very long but perform very good..

In the end of September one of my Silver stars burnt out and everyone was out of stock with them..
So I was forced to go with a set of Phillips Crystal Vision Ultra Bulbs because that was the only brand carried at the last Auto parts store that was on my search list..
They were instock and also Priced cheaper so I decided to give them a try..

1st night driving with them let me say the Clarity of the light is awesome
That is the only way that I can describe it :lol:

These bulbs arent as Blinding white as the Silver stars but the over all Visibility and Clarity of the light quality absolutely Blows the Silver stars away..
I have to drive alot of back roads in pitch black daily..
The projection of the headlight beams go almost 90 degree's off of the sides of my car into the woods..
Probably a few more degree's than the Silver stars did..
But where the Silver stars hit everything with a blinding white light..
The Phillips project with so much better clarity that you can see the bark on the tree's in the woods..

They have also lasted longer than the Sylvannia's..

Just thought I would give them a quick review since in the past I have always recommended Silver stars..
I will not be going back to the Sylvannia's..

Are you ensuring not to touch the bulb glass when you install them?

The reason is because the oil (natural skin oil) on your fingers will put a film on the glass of the halogen bulb. The glass then builds up much more heat due to the oil on your hands, and will burn out the bulb usually in a short amount of time.

You will see the warning on the package itself.
