LED Headlight bulbs for C5

After years of complaining about the poor headlights on our 99 coupe, I finally purchased some LED bulbs and installed them.

What a profound difference!

I paid around $50 delivered for two bulbs with an attached heat-sink, plug and play into the housing and harness.

These new low-beams make the Silverstar Ultra's in the high-beam seem yellow and weak!

Of course the week after I installed the new bulbs one of the foglight bulbs went out.....

I have ordered HID foglights - we will see how that goes.

I'll get some pictures to post here.
