This is how its been for me for years. I cannot enjoy the luxury of a newer vehicle with their high-tech headlights so what am I to do? I've found a solution.... well, actually, it found me: Sylvania SilverStar ULTRA Headlights.
As you can see in the photo, the Sylvania SilverStar ULTRA headlights are up to 50 percent brighter, increase down road visibility by up to 40 percent and side road visibility by up to 50 percent when compared to worn standard bulbs. Studies have shown that whiter, brighter halogen lighting can improve reaction time, increase nighttime visibility and provide better roadside viewing.

So, what do I think?
Upon receiving the Sylvania SilverStar Ultra Headlights, I had my son, Cody, put them in for me. I was anxious to see the difference. Cody was actually the first to use them. He came back and reported an overall improvement to visibility and he was just driving in town. He drives a 'low rider' with all the 'bells and whistles', including those fancy headlights that hurt to look at so I was impressed that he would like the Sylvania's.
Next, it was my turn. I was also driving here in town but could tell quite a difference in the lighting. Everything seemed so clear. Not foggy or hazy as I sometimes got with my other headlights.
Then, the true test: a trip to my boyfriend, Ollie's, house. Ollie lives in a remote area in the hills. The roads are dark and curvy. His road is gravel and unlit. Visits to Ollie's, particularly at night, can be scary. There's so much wildlife on the roads and they're hard to see until they jump on it.
That's not the case with the Sylvania SilverStar ULTRA headlights. I could see clearly and for a good distance in front of me but the best part was I could now see the shoulder and then some. I could see them in advance, too, making it easy to spot all those four-legged creatures, lurking to the side. Even the curves where lit up much better. I felt so much safer with the Sylvania SilverStar ULTRAs on board.
I've been driving with them for a couple months now and they're still performing magnificently. I've even been able to try them in rains, both light and heavy, and they rose to the occasion. I'm very pleased and I recommend them to you all, particularly if your kids are driving. Get these in their vehicles. They don't pay enough attention as it is so give them all the help you can.
Accidents are three times more likely to occur at night than during the day. Here are some tips to keep you and your family safe on the road:
· Consider replacing standard halogen headlights with headlights that produce a brighter and whiter light. Studies have shown that whiter, brighter halogen lighting can improve reaction time, increase nighttime visibility and provide better roadside viewing.
· Don't wait for your headlights to dim and burn out before you replace them. Most headlights will dim up to 20 percent over time so evaluate them every year to ensure the best lighting performance.
· Replace your headlights in pairs to avoid uneven illumination, which can diminish driving visibility.
· Clean your headlight lenses and windshield to help you see better at night and in poor weather conditions.
· Ask your auto service person to make sure your headlights are properly aimed. Headlights can be knocked out of alignment by rough driving and, if not properly aimed, can be distracting to other drivers.
· Periodically check all your car lights to make sure they are in good working order. Ask a family member or friend.
