Default 95 headlight upgrade

looking to upgrade the headlights on my 95, I am not looking for HID blues, just improved vision but the blue/white look certainly is nice. Also, are there upgrades for the fog lights? Thanks!

For excellent light and visibility Corvette Mods will sell you HID projector headlights. I bought them for my 1992. I got 5000 K, 55 watt lights. They put out an awesome amount of white light and do not blind oncoming drivers.

Low beams.


High beams.


My car between 2 other stock headlight C4s.

I replaced mine with Sylvania Silver-Stars. Much better than the stock Wagners.

looks great, I heard that changing to HID was illegal, and being (unfortunately) in California they can be a real pain in the *** on such things. Have you had any issues with the law?

HID Don't have HID headlights, but have HID fogs and that's good enough for me.

Check out a pair of Hella E-code housings and your choice of bulbs. I am using Philips CrystalVision Ultra bulbs. There are some LED replacement bulbs coming out in the H6054 size that are in our cars in the next few months.
