There have been no reports of problems with wiring or fuses with the two bulbs you mention. Low beam OEM is 51 Watts. These bulbs are 55W. The difference is negigible. Be mindful that there are some brands/bulbs that are rated higher (80W low beam). There have been problems reported with these bulbs.
I ran SilverStars on my Low beams until I bought the HID upgrade kit. I still run SilverStars on my High beams. No problem.
I'm using the Silverstars too on my GS400, and bought a set for the RX, but haven't installed them yet. I've been thinking about putting in HIDs in one or both, although I'd probably use just the Silverstars in the RX. Don't want to blind on-coming cars.
Where did you get your HID conversion kit? Are they true Phillips 6000K, and plug and play? Been lurking and hemming and hawing about them, since they're not cheap (about $500?).
if you are looking for some halogen replacements that look kinda like the lexus HID and give a goos white light i settled on these after about 5 different brands they are about $25 a set, SHOWOFF KRYPTON brans and i put 9005 in the dim, bright, and fog lights to make them extra bright, here are some pics
hello, me again, i had some free time tonight so i looked through the forum and i borrowed some pictures from another users post (JohnsRX). JohnsRX installed some awsome looking real HID's in his RX, i agree with everyone else that commented on his, they are awsome! to show the difference in the look alike halogens and the real thing i put some of the pics of my RX up next to his with the real HID's. obviously the real thing looks better, but for those who are trying to decide to spend the big bucks are just get look alikes this may help, hope you didnt mind me using your pics John....
I replaced all headlight bulbs with Sylvania Ultra bulbs. 9005 & 9006. I did this when I had one of the bulbs went bad on the low beam passenger side. After this replacement I have no low beam lights on either side but have hi-beam.
All fuses are good. Are there any known issues for 2003 RX300 using the newer Sylvania Ultra bulbs?
