    These lamps are the brightest I've used in any car, and I like them a lot. Other reviewers complained about the short life of these bulbs. I wasn't happy that the low beam on one lamp quit after about 18 months. However, the package clearly indicates that the life span of this product is significantly less than that of other, less bright bulbs. I'm a frequent night driver, and for me, the performance is such that I'm willing to change the lamp more often for the sake of a brighter light. Folks who aren't happy with the short life might want to consider a product with better longevity and a bit less performance. In a perfect world, these lamps would last a lot longer, but I'm willing to deal with the tradeoff.

        Comments about Sylvania SilverStar ULTRA TWIN Halogen Headlight:

        The lights work better than stock, and since they're more yellow than the blue Hella bulbs they replaced, wet roads and the like look better. Of course like the package says, the higher output bulbs don't last as long, but the stock ones I had also dimmed a fair bit over time.

        Comments about Sylvania SilverStar ULTRA TWIN Halogen Headlight:

        I have these in a 2001 honda odyssey and they work out pretty good. The output is significantly brighter and covers more of the side of the road compared to standard bulbs. One tip though (if you have an older car) is to either buff out or replace you yellowing / fogged up lens. I saw virtually no difference between $20 bulbs and a set of ultra bulbs when inside of an oxidized lens. My lenses weren't bad, but required 2 days of hand buffing to get them like new again. I would estimate a 30% difference in output after all was said and done. They are truly better than standard bulbs, but be prepared to replace them every year. I have had silverstar ultra bulbs since 2008 and they die between 11-14 months of nightly use.

              These are pricy - they were marginally brighter. Only lasted 1 year and 3 months. Funny my old ones are still going... good thing I kept them; based on the other reviews. Buy something else.

                                    Check the owner's manual for your car, which should have specific instructions. Generally, one pulls the plug that's attached to the existing bulb to remove it. Depending on the vehicle, you may have to remove a retaining spring and/or a rubber or plastic boot. Insert the new bulb, re-connect any springs and/or boots, and re-attach the plug to the prongs on the bulb. Make sure you don't touch the glass on the bulb with your fingers, as the oils from your hands will decrease the life of the product. I usually unplug everything with my bare hands, and then put on a pair of latex gloves to handle and install the new bulbs.

                                    It all depends on your vehicle. My Toyota required the removal of a rubber boot, an electrical connector and undoing a retaining latch. That took about 5 minutes total for both lights.
