upgraded headlights

I got some sylvania ultra bulbs put in my 03 but wasnt impressed so I did my own headlight wire upgrade to heavy duty wire and that made a huge difference. If you are looking for a brighter drive at night this is a great mod. I made my own harness with a couple of relays but if I had to do it again I would just purchase the harness instead of doing it my self. Didnt really save enough to make it worth while unless you just want to do it for satisfaction.

Gos Racing and dfuser both sell heavy-guage relay harnesses. That, in combination with silverstars, is a significant upgrade to your headlight system; one that is a lot kinder to the other drivers on the road than those cheap HID systems!

Yes I stayed with the silver stars but did not like them untill the upgrade was done. Very worth while. I see a couple of names have been given for the harness already, I just looked around on the net and I think most of them were around 85 bucks or so. Maybe they even had them on flea bay. Do it.
