Default Silverstar Headlights for Hyundai Tiburon 08?

So I just got my car (woot for Christmas), a Hyundai Tiburon 08.

My dad has been looking into a pair of Silverstar Headlights for his vehicle, and I saw that they weren't too expensive and that I could afford them, so I'm thinking about getting some for my new ride.

But I couldn't find em, don't know where to look, and don't know how to make sure they will work!

I don't really care what the brand are as long as they are good. I just want the same effect, you know, those really bright lights.

I'm a newb with cars so yeah.

Anyone want to point me in the right direction?

Well Sylvanias is the actual brand of headlight bulbs. What you are going to want to look into is a set of Sylvania Silverstars. They make a noticeable difference in the brightness of your lights and are pretty inexpensive.

Yep, Pep Boys and Autozone. These are one of the few things i have purchased at those stores. I hate buying stuff there. ~$40 for a pair. Just go to the counter and ask them to lookup the headlight bulb number (low beams) for your car. Theyll tell you a number then you go to the aisle and find the Silverstars with that number.

I love Silverstars. Im probably going to get some soon for the Z28. I had them in my Prelude.

NOTE!: When installing them DO NOT TOUCH THE BULB. Id even wear a thin glove, but try not to touch the bulb with anything. It will degrade the life. Average lifespan is around a year (personal experience and others online). If you touch them, less.

Hmm, I hit up Autozone and they guy tried to look it up on his computer for 08 and 07 Tiburons but he didn't find anything.
Looks like I'll head to the nearest Pep Boys soon!

Thx for the info.

Sylvania is the brand. Silverstars are the bulbs. Sylvania makes lots of different lights.

You can take the old bulb out and match it up too.

Hey currently I run a PepBoys come on. Na just joking i've been with every major company out there just like pepboys b/c I get to charge regular retail on installed parts rather then marking them up. The company does have a bad rep though it's just that they didn't care who ran thier shops ones apon a time now they're finally paying to get real auto people that care and know what's happening.

You gotta admit though, most of the parts and whatnot are not "high quality". The only thing i would get there would be accessories (bulbs, maybe wipers, etc) and fluids, name brand stuff. I like getting mechanical parts from NAPA.

You are quite right. I said it backwards and just noticed.
