I run Silver Stars in every vehicle I own (03 Tahoe Z71, 91 GTA TransAm, 94 Camaro Z28), and I love them!! Two nights ago I put one in the M109, and yes it makes a difference!! Especially in High Beam!

So what is the benefit of changing out the stock headlight? After all, it's already a H4 light so it's not like it's a true upgrade. Why spend $40 some odd dollars on something that is going to give only a different colored light? What am I missing here?

First, it's only a $19.95 bulb available at any Walmart, Autozone, Adv Auto, etc.... It produces a brighter, whiter light with a higher temperature output, the highest available without being HID (High Intesity Discharge) The result is you get a better view of the road at night, in the rain, and in fog. Check out their website at www.sylvania.com and check out the Silverstars.

I put Silverstars in my Camry and I could tell a little difference. The one thing I have noticed is that my factory headlight blew after several years and nearly 70K miles of "always on" driving, but one of my Silverstars has already died after a year and a half (no, I never touched the bulb with bare hand so that isn't an issue). I will take you guy's word about the improvement, but I think I'll wait. I don't have a problem with seeing at night with the stock light. Now, if they could develop a light that shines around curves, that would be sweet. :bigthumbsup:

Are there any HID Light replacements for M109R and has anyone used it yet??

I hear they don't burn out and are 3 times brighter than halegons!

I can agree with you, as the "sealed" replacement bulbs are slightly better than factory, but the "modular" bulbs produce much better results.

As far as I know, you cannot just put a HID light in a standard socket. HID lights require some sort of power box or computer something or other to make them work because they don't have a filament in the bulb. At least that is true for cars. That's why they are so expensive to add on. Not sure if there is a HID kit available for the 109 though. I think they make kits for other bikes though.

Not sure what you mean by sealed replacement bulbs as opposed to modular bulbs.

Since we're on the subject of the headlight - does anyone know how/where the adjustment is on the M? My bright light shines up at a pretty radical angle. The whole headlight assembly needs to be adjusted to shine a little closer to the ground. Thanks for any help/info :)

Yeah, I could use some help on this also... as my brights are great.... but my low beams seem to shine too close... I think something needs to be adjusted to compensate for my weight (around 290)
