Hello D members,
6 months or so i installed a set of PIAA Platinum Star White headlight bulbs. Now the Driver side low beam doesnt work, does that mean i need a new bulb again or maybe something wrong with electrical. Any info would be appreciated.

hey my cheap fake xenon bulbs work best when the low beams are on and i pull back the high beam switch, keepin them both on

if i spliced my high beam and low beam wire into each other would they always stay on like that??? what negative effects would it have?

67, look at these sylvania #'s for hours. The Silverstars (ST) are quite short-lived.

I've had Silverstars on for about two years and they're still going strong. (Not sure it was worth the money though, because you can't tell the difference when driving.)

I would think that keeping both elements lit at the same time would cause the bulbs to overheat.

I can tell the difference when driving, because I live out in the country and I'm driving the backroads all the time. Maybe it's just how my headlights are aimed, but I can tell a huge difference from the stockers it came with, and outside looks different too, they look pure like a crystal white at night, can't wait to get diamond cut headlights one of these days.

I agree with Esh, the trees are so dense near me (mostly 50yr old oaks) that the street is pretty dark. There's a nice halo projected much higher and farther out with the SS's so it's easier to spot moving stuff earlier. I'd bet daytime running lights would wear them out quickly. They're only rated for 90hrs.

Yeah drl would kill the bulbs. I love my silverstars and the only thing I would trade them for would be high and low beam HID's (the projector kit that I've seen pictures of).
