Re: Headlight output degradadation over time?

I replaced both pairs, high beam & low beam today (kinda expensive, about $85.00 for all) with the Sylvania SilverStar Bulbs and the difference is huge.
Much better coverage and brighter, whiter light. I'm glad it's only a once every three year expense.

Silverstars and other high output halogens tend to have a shorter life than conventional halogens.
There is no such thing as a free lunch unfortunately...

Yup. Comments on the Interwebz indicate that Silverstar bulbs only last about a year. If I were the OP, I'd simply replace the bulbs with the OEM bulbs, and you'll be good for another 7 years.

I haven't noticed any difference in regular bulbs and silverstars. They go when they go.

Q) How long do the headlights last?

A) The life of any halogen bulb varies based on vehicle type, vehicle voltage, amount of time the bulb is on, road conditions, proper installation, and correct application. The average life of SilverStar® headlights is approximately one year. With our SYLVANIA SilverStar® products, the primary goal is to offer the brightest, whitest light. Research has shown SilverStar® headlights improve driver visibility and reaction time. However, since our SilverStar® headlights are up to 35% brighter and our SilverStar® ULTRA headlights are up to 50% brighter than standard halogen, they may have a shorter life span compared to our other products. We offer a wide variety of products to satisfy customer needs including brightness, durability, color options and increased visibility. We recommend evaluating your headlights annually as part of your regular vehicle maintenance.

There are three types of Silverstar bulbs. The brighter the bulb, the shorter the life. Some only last about a year.
