I'm going to be replacing mine soon so I'm looking for some suggestions. Looking for halogen and my only real requirement is that they not be the ridiculously bright/fake HID type.

Standard replacements. Brighter lights burn shorter so you're wasting your money. You could always look for LED upgrades as an option.

Which lamp does your car use?

9007.

I've been reading a little bit and the consensus seems to be that there isn't an appreciable difference (if any) between the high-end bulbs. Shorter lifespan is one reason why I don't want anything super bright either.

Just get the standard sylvania's. No point in the "brighter" bulbs. Only real upgrade is if your vehicle was offered with xenon HID's which you could retrofit if you were so inclined.

Or you go with aftermarket route with off road light's (limited usefulness)

Define "limited usefulness" because there's plenty of aftermarket projectors which provide better light output than factory ones. I've been running retrofitted aftermarket "off road use only" lights for the last 5 years with no issues what so ever in regards to inspections and my light beam output is immensely better than stock and compared to some OEM vehicles.

I actually ended up ordering those a couple hours ago.

Now I just need to go to the U Pull A Part and get a new assembly.

Limited usefulness since those lights are meant for off road use only (Glare?). I haven't heard of any aftermarket projectors being better than the stock projectors on any vehicle.

I have done the silverstars and other bright bulbs, they have lasted years for me. If it is 50% life of ordinary bulbs i dont care the quality of light with them has been worth it in my experience.

These are the bulbs that lean towards blue. Not the gay stuff that becomes almost purple or dingy yellow


I have 4 vehicles now and they all have them.
