Crappy Tire has the Silver Stars on a peg rack.

For a coupe, you'll need 2 9005ST and 2 9006ST.

I had BMW install them beacuse you need to remove parts to access the back of the headlights.

Good luck! I hope there's more room in your engine bay. BMW installed mine for about $30.

Ya it's pretty easy for me, I guess because I have the older engine not too crowded. But I had to remove the intake box and then squeze my way off the wiper resevour.

Sorry to ruin Crappy Tire's sales (yeah, right) but I sell bulbs which are EXACTLY the same in performance as Silverstars. We conducted a test on my friend's Maxima (he had the 'stars and swore I was lying) and there was NO difference in light pattern and colour. I've also had the bulbs in my car since summer, and they have not blown.

I'll do 9005 and 9006 for $65, taxes in. Money back if they don't do what I say.

EBAY, I forgot the price, about 10+USD a pair shipped, There should be lots of Auto accessories stores have them in Toronto area, just ask for hyper white 1157 bulbs when you drop by.
