i did a couple minor things ot the car today; debadge the trunk lid of the 'volvo' and the 'R' [i had onyl done the S60 and AWD previously], cut open the fog lamp grills and paint htem black, cut the keyhole [getting ready for CAI from kelly as soon as it comes in], and replace the fogs with silverstars...they're definitely brighter, but they still look to be about the same hue... ?<p><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img214.imageshack.us/img214/7702/hts3jg3.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img214.imageshack.us/img214/2376/dsc7335zo4.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><br>

Re: why do my silverstars still look yellow? (Cicada)

Did you let them heat up? They turn more white as they warm up. Big difference after 5 minutes. <p><IMG SRC="http://img224.echo.cx/img224/1506/1002329small3cv.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>The one on the left is stock, the one on the right is Silverstar warmed up.

I put in some fogs that were supposedly to match the xenon color but nothing will truly match the color but real xenons.
