I took some pics of my ZXE's last night, thought I'd share in case anyone was interested. They make a great alternative for those of us who want the look of HIDs without spending big bucks on new headlights or messing with a cheap HID retrofit. These run about $60 local, but can be had for around $35-$40 on eBay.
Sorry for the lousy cell phone pics.
Looks nice a good clean light. Not sure what is going on with your driver side beam though, it is everywhere! I have had SilverStar Ultras in my car for about 5 years now without any issue, so either I am lucky or some guys got some crappy sets and it has spread like wildfire?!
Those dont look bad at all! I got my low beam HIDs off eBay for $30 bucks shipped.
Yea I had a set of those $30 Xentecs from ebay on my last car, 2011 Kia Optima with halogen projectors. They looked awful and flickered like crazy, even with a relay. I had to send one of the ballasts in for a replacement within the first month as well. Maybe I just got a bad batch, I don't know. It was enough to make me not want to do it again though.
I have always put Silverstar Ultras in every car that I buy. I have currently had my set in for about two years and they're working fine. I really like the look of the new bulbs. I wonder what they look like from behind the wheel?
Is it a noticeable difference between the silverstar and the stock as far as distance goes? I had the regular silverstars in my Liberty and liked them. One thing I notice on my XK is that the fogs seem almost just as bright as the headlights.
