Product Description

Style: 9005

Product Description

The Sylvania SilverStar ULTRA High Performance Headlight is our brightest downroad and whiter light. The combination of our farthest downroad, more sideroad, and whiter light helps the driver achieve more clarity helping to make night driving a less stressful, more comfortable experience. Sylvania achieves this using a specially designed filament, propriety gas mixture as well as a lamp coating that makes a brighter downroad light and shifts the color temperature towards a whiter light.

From the Manufacturer

Sylvania's SilverStar Ultra product line of halogen headlight bulbs are the ultimate choice for professionals and do-it-yourselfers who want and/or need to provide the whitest and brightest automotive lighting option possible to vehicles that they are servicing. The SilverStar Ultra 9005SU twin-pack contains two high performance halogen headlight bulbs which feature dramatic improvements over standard halogen bulbs, including up to 50% brighter light, 40% increased down-road visibility and up to 50% increased side-road visibility.

Why You Should Upgrade to SilverStar Ultra
It is an accepted fact that headlights can dim over time by 20% or more. When this dimming occurs, timely replacement of halogen bulbs can instantly increase lighting performance and resulting visibility, but all halogen bulbs are not created equal. The more light you can spread on the road, the better the visibility. With this in mind any driver looking to replace or upgrade their headlights should consider Sylvania's SilverStar Ultra line of halogen headlights bulbs. With a color temperature rated at 4100K (Kelvin), the level of whiteness of the light put out by SilverStar Ultra bulbs is close to that of an approximation of natural daylight at noon (4870K). Their level of brightness, the amount of light able to be reflected in a particular direction(s) or on particular spots, is also exceptionally high. Together these factors make SilverStar Ultra bulbs the whitest and brightest halogen headlights currently available. This increased lighting performance allows for dramatic improvements over standard halogen bulbs in various areas, including up to a 40% increase in down-road visibility, side-road visibility improvements up to 50% and overall increased brightness levels of light up to 50%. The result is a halogen bulb that allows drivers to see farther, wider and more clearly. Combine this with the SilverStar Ultra's D.I.Y. friendly plug and play installation, and you have a product line of bulbs that are a clear choice for any replacement or upgrade project.

Key Features:

  • The whitest and brightest headlight currently available.
  • Up to 40% increased down-road visibility.
  • Increases side-road (peripheral) visibility by approximately 50%.
  • Up to 50% brighter light.
  • "Plug and play" orientation means that SilverStar Ultra bulbs can be installed as easily as standard halogen bulbs.
  • Includes 2 Sylvania 9005SU 12.8V, 65W SilverStar Ultra High Performance halogen headlights.

I replaced my high beam bulbs with the Ultras a few days ago. Much better light pattern now, can see the signs at night much better. The light is much whiter with a blue tint. Would recommend to everyone that drives at night.
Some other reviews say that the Sylvania bulbs burn out too soon. Being a technician mechanic most of my life, the main thing you must do when handling these bulbs for install is wear gloves.
The oil from your hands will create "hot spots" on the bulbs and they will burn out prematurely. So buy some latex gloves and put them on from the second you open the package, to when you are done. Then they will last longer than a year. My 9004 Silver Stars in my Jetta are going on three years now.

These are great headlight bulbs. Many people say they don't last more than a year, but they have a one year warranty on the for a reason. Otherwise, it is stated in the back as well. It takes less than 5 minutes to change these bulbs and that includes washing my hands afterwards. Even if there wasn't a year warranty on these, I would still buy them becuase they do make a huge difference compared to the long lasting headlights. I would rather be able to see further down the road and spend a little more than cheapskate out $20 for some cheaper bulbs. Can't put a price on visibility while driving. I put up a picture of the difference the lightbulb makes in real life. I'd say it is a lot brighter but not so much wider than before. Maybe around 40-50 % brighter and 10% wider visibility.

ALL the DOT-legal high output bulbs achieve higher output by overdriving the filiments, which reduces bulb life. They have to do this because the DOT puts limits on wattage. The only exception are HID and HIR bulbs, which use new technology to get more light out of less watts.

According to Sylvania:
"Since our SilverStar(r) ULTRA
headlights are up to 50% brighter than standard halogen, they will have
a shorter life span when compared to our other products. Part number
9005SU will last for approximately 125 hours of "on time", 200 hours for
part 9006SU."

For comparison, standard Halogens are rated at 1000/350 hours low/high. Use the S

If you want good lights on a 9006/9005 car, get some Toshiba 911 and 912 HIR bulbs. They'll cost you about $15 more than the Silverstars Ultras, put out more light... and last 5 times as long!

As I reach my 60th year on this earth, I have found my "night vision" while driving to be less then optimal! Because of that I wanted to have better lighting from my vehicle's headlight's. I also wanted to be in compliance within all 50 states while accomplishing this lighting task.

After a bit of investigation online I decided that the Sylvania 9006SU BP TWIN Silverstar Ultra, Twin Pack was the right choice for me.

I have not been disappointed in that choice. Everything touted about the lamps has been truthful, and I'm glad I did make the switch from the OEM lamps to these.

I suggest anyone needing a similar improvement for their night time driving do the same!

Very bright but short lived.
I installed a set in my 2002 Honda CRV. One burned out in about 4 months and I don't have running lights. A call to Sylvania customer service gave a offer to send a new set if I returned the burnt out bulb with the sales reciept. OK thats nice, 2 for 1. Very generious,however the second set did not last any longer. Another call to C.S. This time the rep. was more helpfull or should I say truthful. I was informed that some makes of vechiles such as Honda and BMW, as well as other forgien makes run as high as 15 volts to the headlights causing premature failure of the Silver Star and Silver Star Ultra bulbs. Therefore Sylvania does not recomend them for these cars. Now they tell me.
I have had a set in my Chrysler T&C van for over 2 years. No problem.
Check with your dealer if your car is not US and save yourself money and aggravation.

The Silverstar bulbs, whether this type or the standard ones are a good upgrade for any vehicle. I have them in 3 vehicles now, and they have lasted years in my VW Jetta and are still as bright as the day I put them in. Some reviews state short life span, so here's the best tip I gave give anyone working with headlight bulbs.
The second you are working with your Silverstars, put on latex gloves and don't take them off until you have the job done. Oil from your skin will create hot spots on the bulbs and they will burn out quickly. If you don't touch them, this won't happen and they should last for quite a few years. At this price, I would recommend these bulbs to everyone that would like to see better at night.

Style Name: 9007 Verified Purchase
I recently purchased a 2007 Nissan Frontier SE pick-up. I noticed it had the reflective headlights when I purchased it, but thought no furthur about it until my first night back roads(dark) drive. We have a lot of deer in the area, and hardly a night goes by that I do not have them cross the road in front of me. I could not see more than 100 feet in front of me on dim and about 125 feet on bright, it seemed, and was hesitant to drive more than 30-35 mph. I found myself ducking down to try to see under the light/dark edge. I was amazed to hear my wife describe the same feeling. I hated to drive at night. I contacted the local Nissan dealer and asked if the lights could be adjusted. The service manager acted like I was crazy and said they had not had this problem before, and was no help at all. I contacted Nissan headquarters who were even less help. They told me to contact the local dealers who were independently owned, and would be glad to furnish me a list of the area dealers. What a joke. I asked for help to solve a serious problem to me and got the brush off from Nissan on what I considered a serious design problem. I have a friend who has a Titan and does not have the reflective type lights and has no problems. So, Internet here I come. I found the Sylvania Silverstar Ultra lights, and started reading the reviews. Almost all were raves about how much it helps night driving. So, I decided to purchase some. BEST PURCHASE I HAVE MADE IN SOME TIME!!!! These lights made night driving so much easier. I can now see down the road. I would recommend these lights, and have, to anyone who feels their night vision is impaired by insufficient lighting by their automobile. Thanks Sylvania for fixing my problem.
