Problem is HID == expensive, but Solstice != expensive. Things have to be cute to meet a price point. HIDs are a non-required feature that would have been nice, but also make the price jump up.JonzeOnSolstice said:I was very disappointed to see that the Solstice did not have HID options. Then again you can always go to the auto parts store and by the cheep imitation bulbs--did it on an old lude I had and it looked alright. For the Solstice I might just drive with the foglights on...looks cool enough for me-for now.
I've seen in pictures and in person the difference that a high-wattage H4 kit from www.pfyc.com makes:dori-san said:What I'm wanting to know is what KIND of bulb does the Solstice use? H4 or what?
And if that's the case, anybody looking for a brighter alternative should go with Sylvania Silverstars. They are some of the best lighting you can affordably buy as just bulbs. Anything better and you're looking at retrofitting HIDs. If anyone wants, I can post a detailed comparison I did (with my 240SX) between stock sealed beams, cheap H4s that came with the conversion housings, and Silverstars.
This is why I'm wondering, because I have a pair of H4 Silverstars that I'll be removing from my current car and putting into the Solstice on the first night, barring that the Solstice is going to use H4s...
...So does anyone know the bulb type?
Does that include the Silverstars? If not, I wouldn't mind seeing Dori-San's review.Billabongi said:Just so you guys know Aftermarket HID lights have been illegal in the US since October of last year. You can and will be fined for it if caught.
Silverstars are standard halogen bulbs so no that is not included. Silverstars are really the only legal way to get better "quality" lighting out of your system. You can also upgrade the harnesses usually and provide a little better power to your lights.WaitingForBoost said:Does that include the Silverstars? If not, I wouldn't mind seeing Dori-San's review.
