  1. Silverstars?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Do you need projector headlights to install them? If not what else do you need to install the bulbs?
  2. Sylvania Silverstars Ultra or Reg

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 2005 Passat TDI and I want to put in Silverstars. Should I put Ultras in both High and Low Beam, or Ultras in the Low and Regs in the High or Regs in the Low and Ultras in the High??? Discisions, Discisions!! Let me know what you think. I am leaning towards Ultras in both.
  3. HID not much brighter than silverstars

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I just installed my McCulloch HID 5000 kit and took the car for a spin to see how they looked. I noticed only a slight difference in brightness over my Halogen silverstars. I did see white light but not to the the extent I was expecting. Is this due to using stock projectors? aiming of my...

  6. Sylvania vs. Osram Silverstars

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Anyone know the answer to this? Do the Osram (Euro) Silverstars last longer than the Sylvania (US Spec) Silverstars? I ask because I lost my entire drivers side (Headlight and foglight) this morning. Both were Sylvania Silverstars. They don't seem to last all that long, but are brighter...
  7. City light bulbs to match Silverstars

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I just made the switch to Silverstar headlights and fog lights but now my city lights don't match. Any ideas where I can get city light bulbs that do match?
  8. Oh! My HIDs! update - Oh! My Silverstars!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Last night, Big_C came over complaining of weak headlamp output and we noodled around with the Haynes to adjust the lamp aim. His were nearly perfect, so we left them alone. Then I flicked mine on. :shock: I had never seen a side-by-side, close-up, in-person comparison of HIDs and halogens...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm always weary about buying anything off ebay, but could someone tell me if these are real osram silverstars? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=7936874519&category=36476[/url]
  10. Update: Comparison Photo - Sylvania Silverstars vs. stock

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    (edited) My other headlight is still stock so I can very easily compare them side by side. See the pic at the bottom of this page. Are the Osram Silverstars from Europe really that much different from the Sylvanias I got from Advance Auto?

    These are one pair Sylvania Silverstar 9003/H4, new in sealed pkg, made in Germany. They replace the hi-beam bulb on 1998-2001 B5s. I unintentionally mailordered 2 pairs rather than 2 bulbs, so I'm selling these. $35 shipped to lower 48.
  14. Sylvania Silverstars

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Does anyone have a picture of what their Silverstars look like lit up at night? I just received a pair of them today from a guy on Ebay and they don't look very "white" to me. They have that yellow light like OEM bulbs. Did I get ripped off. Are they supposed to be "white"? I had a set of...
  15. Sylvania Silverstars Fog Blown fuse

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My Sylvania Silverstars H3 fog bulbs blew the 15 Amp fuse today. Wondering if anyone else has had this problem? I never had a problem with any of my other cars doing this. I took out the blown 15 Amp and put in a 20 amp fuse. So far so good and I will see how this works out. These are my...
  16. Vision Plus or Silverstars?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I need to replace one of my headlights and I figured I'd just upgrade. Can't afford to go HID, but I know these are two popular choices. Any thoughts as to which ones are better?
  17. Sylvania Silverstars?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Ok I'm a poor college student so i can't afford the HID like i really want. so im thinking of investing in some different light bulbs. I've seen ads for the Silverstars by Sylvania, and i was wondering if anyone has used them and if they are any good? Also how much should i expect to pay for...
