Chuck,

They are the Sylvania Silverstar's. I'll see if I can dig out a part number. I went that route initially, but it wasn't a significant improvement. The problem's really the lexan covers - all those little scratches absorb, scatter, and diffuse the light. For a descent improvement consider removing the covers. The 90mm HID's that I'm now using aren't DOT certified, well the low beams are, but the high beams are not. In Europe it's illegal to put any covers (lexan) over HID's cause the light can refract and scatter into the oncoming drivers eyes. This is why I ditched the lexan. My lights are like a 747 coming in for a landing. In the dessert I can see 5 miles ahead. The high beams are so bright I have to be very careful about using them. This might be the best upgrade I did to the bus. It was Stephen Birtles who gave me the idea. I bought them from Susquehanna Motorsports, http://rallylights.net. The other beauty about this technology is that they are only 35 Watt. I get 10 times the light for 1/2 the power.

I want to buy a passenger side light cover and attempt to adapt it to the left. I tried my broken one yurned upside down on the other side and it appears that it will fit somewhat. It will be some different, but it will look better than what I have now.

How much?

Richard, how bad is the damaged unit? Those of us that mess with boats a lot get kind of handy repairing fiberglas. The lenses can be made easily. Is there enough left that a fiberglas guy can work with it? That might be better than having a mismatch.

Ron,

These covers are not fiberglass. Their made of plastic lexan.

I guess it's the inner shell that's fiberglass.

Chuck,

The HID costs have drastically dropped in the last year or so. We've got dual bulb setups on our bigger motorcycles and REALLY like them. They were about $400 each about 2 yrs ago. The same kit is about $250 or under. Do some "inner-net" searching!
