There has been some discussion replacing the headlamps with Sylvania Silverstars; however, I could not find a post that stated which ones were needed. Both the Sylvania replacement site as well as Walmart's do not list the tC. Can anyone provide the model number?

As well, I think some folks have replaced other exterior lights with LED types. If anyone ould provide make, model, and how they like it, I would appreciate it!


Thanks in advance,

Dan

Headlights are 9005 and 9006. As for the LEDs, I put blue LEDs in my parking lights -- let me go downstairs and take pics of them and I'll post them shortly.

I got PIAAs on both the parking and the headlights... looks great. It gives off a much whiter light than the stock ones.

I would post the type I got but I don't have the boxes with me.

i'm in no way putting anyone down or anything but i think that the PIAAs act the same as cheap blue bulbs. meaning the coating filters out all colors except white and produces a bright white light but reduces visibility although it appears that visibility has been enhanced. but if you like them, that's cool.
this is just my opinion based on some research i did a few months ago.

this is one of the best articles that i found. it discusses aftermarket bulbs, including the PIAAs and the reduced visibility.
