A few shots of the Silverstar replacement fogs. I thought about Hoens but I couldn't wait any longer, that yellow OEM fog had to go. I like the look and the install wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Take a look, the first shot in daylight was the stock bulb, the second with the Silverstar. What do you think?:feedback:

They look great, huge improvement over stock. Was there modifying involved? What are the bulb #'s?

They are Silverstars, number 9145. No modification needed and perfect wattage match.

They match pretty nicely!

What color temp are they?

How long did it take you to install?

Lilbear,

Did you happen to take a pic before the change for a comparison.... I always forget to do the before pics myself.

They do look nice. But to be honest... I thought that is the way they looked like already. I have never seen a 300 C coming at me at night so I have never really looked at the lights before. Never walked out in front of the car at night to see the color of the lights before either. I guess I'll have to go out and take a look tonight. The 1st and last pic show that they four lights match up very nicely.


Thanx for sharing!


Sure gets expensive reading the posts here,
Gary

Thanx for adding the last 2 shots as they do a great comparison and show the dif in the stock and Silverstars.

I never knew...... Now I know what else I have to do when I get my grill.

Thanx,
Gary

They're rated at 4000 degrees. The install took about an hour (estimated since I had to run to get some electrical grease for the sockets and beer :friday: ). The install itself is just a matter of removing the service cover and the cover that connects to the front bumper. They're six push pins (three on either side in the wheel wells) that come out rather easy and are reuseable. Then you remove the ten hex head screws connecting the front cover to the front bumper (7mm socket). Yank that panel out of there, reach in and grab those yellow foglights. Replace with new bulbs being careful not to touch the bulb's glass. You can figure out the rest. Oh yeah, putting those pins back in can be a beast. Try putting a lil oil on the tips, seemed to help. I love those wheels by the way!!!!

You are brave for gettin in there and doin that! The lights look very nice though!

I have the Silverstars in my 96 Jeep...I like them alot. I might have to try those in the 300...

Thanks for the wheel comment, I am very happy with them! I plan on lowering in a month or two!

The Silverstar and stock fogs are rated at 40 watts.

There is no listing for the SRTs on the Sylvania site. Check your owners manual and I'll sure it'll say you need a 9145.

Nice, I just got the Xenon Match from Hoen, got the brights in, turns the lower portion of the lamp blue from the blub, looks pretty cool though. Just need to get the car onto a lift so I can get the fogs changed out. The Silverstars look good though, I used them on my previous car for with no problems.
