I am anxious to see how long these will last for. sylvania admits that the lifetime is much shorter than for the standard bulbs but I really only use my fogs in bad weather or in rural areas. if they don't last at least a couple years I'm not gonna fork over another $40 for new ones (versus $20 for the standards).
yea i know about the 3100K vs 4100K color differences.
if u use silverstar in the headlights will notice a bit more cover due to the brighter light but not as much as in what you did with the fogs. because you put a high beam bulb in a fog light housing and its an extra 10 -25 watts depending on what year WJ u have.
but this can go on and on if silvarstars are good or not
form the silverstar u will get a year, maybe 2 if your fingers did not touch the bulb (oil from are hand skill them so much quicker). can all ways throw in HID's in the fogs lol
