Is it just me or does the factory headlights/bulbs on the 2004 si seem a little dim? Is there anyway to improve my headlights brightness? Do i gotta change the housing or can i just change the headlight bulbs? Thank you very much.

Changing the Bulbs to Sylvania Silverstars is really a nice improvement. I went from Factory bulbs to GE SB (superblue/superbright) bulbs and then again to Silverstars. I thought the GE's were nice but the sylvanias are Great.

There's a $5 rebate for them too.

hey i picked up the silverstars and really like them. i have a question, can you use the high beam bulbs for ur low beam lights? i still want my lights to be brighter. i think the reason i feel my headlights are as bright is because the si is so low. thanks.

I use the PIAA Super Plasma bulbs and they are significatly brighter than stock. So if i were you i would choose PIAA over sylvania.

Tire Rack sells the PIAA Bulbs. Since you already have the Sylvania Bulbs (and you probably won't notice a difference if much by switching to PIAA's), Try adding on some PIAA Fog or Driving lights. My Girlfriend and I both have PIAA 1400Platinum Fog Lights and it helps out too.

I am driving Civic 04 EX sedan.
I am thinking of upgrading the headlight.

How long does the light bulb last?
How often do I need to change the bulb?
If I want to get e.g. Sylvania Silverstars to my civic, how can I install it?

I have PIAA Super Plasma GT-X bulbs in my 02 EX. My first pair only lasted me 11 months. PIAA replaced them under warranty (1 year).

Installation is real simple, just remember not to touch the bulb with your fingers or it will blow. Your manual provides very simple instructions about installing an your particular size bulb. (mine is H4)
