Silverstar Ultras are reliable if you are looking to replace the factory bulbs. You can find good deals on HID conversion kits on craigslist and amazon if you want to go that route. If you get an aux. set, be sure to check local laws on the number of lights that you can run at once. In Washington, I had my main lights, my fogs and my aux pair. I removed the aux. pair after I got a ticket for the number of lights. KC or Hella aux. lights are reliable and fairly inexpensive.

Agreed. I run the ultras in my headlights. I bought my Hella 500 FF driving lights at walmart for about 50 bucks. They give off a good amount of light without breaking the bank.
